Oh yes I did Tink, it was a cold but clear evening, and all the little hoobly-gooblies were out, along with LOTS of their 16-18 y/o cohorts who apparently just never got out of the habit!

But I gave beautiful full-size candy bars to everyone, except I ran out early...had to turn off the porch light...too many came this year, next year if I am still here I will be sure to have more!

*  *  *

All the tiny ones were with parents, sometimes BOTH Mom and Dad; and so I was thinking of my own childhood in the 1950's, a little kid would NEVER allow the parents to come along, you were on your own for Hallowe'en as soon as you were old enough to run around on your own two little pins!

Well, we now live in the age of helicopter parenting... I've been told before that kids in the old days would never  have wanted their parents along when they went trick-or-treating. :D

We had a good bit of rain and wind, so we only got about 20 kids, rather than the usual 40 or so. Plenty of candy left over (I really should stop getting Halloween stuff I like to eat, to avoid the temptation). :ermm:

Oh yes, now that I am 75 I am more careful with nutrition...but occasionally you DO just really need a candy bar...so I had a Baby Ruth last night, a favorite from childhood!

Nice and quiet. Wife and I watched old movies and just relaxed. No kids walk all the way out here much for Halloween and I took my girls into town for some party. Course I had to go pick them up and don't know why as they both can drive. Hmmmm.

Pretty quiet here last night. Although I live kind of off the beaten path, I usually get a lot of die hard candy kids but not many this year. Anyone want some leftover candy???
