I've become a bit jaded by Halloween over the past few years. As you might expect, it comes down to greed ruining it. I've noticed more and more parents or kids showing up with two bags - claiming that one is for them and the other one is for "their sick brother/sister" at home. Sure it is. I've had adults show up by themselves wearing a minimal bit of makeup asking for a handout. Then there are the parents who drive their kids all over the county to loot as many sub-divisions as possible. We actually get people from Tennessee down here. Granted the state line is 15 miles away but come on folks.

And so it is that Jacob and Vanessa went to her mother's house for the weekend, and I am hunkering down with the lights off and a bottle of rum by my side as I watch the final John Adams DVD from Netflix.

Dave, I know what you mean!

And Happy (belated) Halloween to all.

I was waiting on a double stack at Wendy's, and this woman pulled up with a car load of kids to hit Wendy's for Halloween treats.

Only one had a costume on, the rest were carrying bags!

did you have to spray yourself with the hose to make yourself stop?

i had one trick-or-treater this year....im guessing he was 13, had no costume (unless wearing all black counts as a costume this year), and he rang the doorbells for all the apartments in the area at once and then waited to see who would answer....i barely finished saying "sorry, we just moved in and didnt have a chance to buy candy this year" (which was true) before he was halfway down the stairs and off to the next "hit"

at least he was efficient, i guess

i did feel a little bad for him...seemed like a dorky kid, maybe no friends to hang out with, and just wanted some candy...or maybe that was all part of his evil plan haha

Happy belated Halloween!

This tradition has over the past ten years entered Norway, well at least the greedy part.

However, it's our son's birthday at the same day so this year we were loaded with candy, both for halloween and for his birtday party Rumours spread quite quickly that our house was worth a visit when it came to "income"...

Happy Witches Day to all, belated. I must say we don't get many because we live so far out. We had gone to dinner, but I left a pumpkin with candy outside. There wasn't much missing when we came home, so I don't know if anyone stopped or not. I feel so bad for that family that had their son shot. What a ridiculous excuse the killer had, "I thought I was being robbed". He had his light on, it's Halloween Night, it's 7:30 at night, be real. You don't open fire through the door without even looking.
