H-Hours is Just About Here - 10/31/02 02:51 PM

10 minutes and counting until the kids hit for Trick or Treat. I do not mind the local kids but they always cart in kids for all over...nearly headed out this year...spent over $20 in candy that only lasts an hour or so.<br><br>

That is one reason I hate to give it all out...I wanted some! And I give out the good stuff. Last year had to stop kids from coming 3-4 times....no kids yet...cold and rainy here (yeah!)<br><br>

I'm sure you also want to make sure that they get only the best quality stuff, right?<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

I have not sampled from the Halloween candy bowl - I am too full from all of the chocolates from Swatcat. <br><br>One group of three kiddos so far - and they live across the street.<br><br>[color:red]When all is said and done, much more is said than done.</font color=red>

Top Ten Signs You're Too Old to Be Trick or Treati - 10/31/02 03:28 PM

<br><br><br>10. You get winded from knocking on the door.<br>9. You have to have another kid chew the candy for you.<br>8. You ask for high fiber candy only.<br>7. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, you lose your balance and fall over.<br>6. People say, "Great Keith Richards mask!" and you're not wearing a mask.<br>5. When the door opens you yell, "Trick or..." and can't remember the rest.<br>4. By the end of the night, you have a bag full of restraining orders.<br>3. You have to carefully choose a costume that won't dislodge your hairpiece.<br>2. You're the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.<br>And the #1 Sign You're Too Old to Be Trick or Treating<br>1. You avoid going to houses where your ex-wives live.<br><br><br><br>

I am already down to the last big bag of <br>snickers....<br><br>

Re: where are the trick or treators - 10/31/02 03:44 PM

I was under orders to hand out the snickers last, butterfingers first (at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)<br><br>

Re: H-Hours is Just About Here - 10/31/02 03:47 PM

Might be a rain out here. Bummer<br>I bought 6 bags of candy and put out all the Holloween scary decorations outside.<br><br>Interesting that a few years ago I got a ton of Foreign college students at my door, tieing one one. They thought that this event was something spectacular in the view point of that strangers were giving candy away to strangers. Gave me a kinda neat feeling.<br><br>

Re: where are the trick or treators - 10/31/02 03:48 PM

I was holding out with the Snickers too. I screwed up this year...i thought I bought a big bag of Reese Cups but got the sticks instead...they went first. <br><br>I can not get over how many grown-ups are out with hands out!<br><br>

Re: where are the trick or treators - 10/31/02 03:48 PM

Re: where are the trick or treators - 10/31/02 03:51 PM

Re: where are the trick or treators - 10/31/02 03:51 PM

I just throw all the candy into a big bowl and stir.<br><br>I tell the kids to say "BOOOOO" if not I can take candy from their bag.<br><br>

Re: the art of handing out candy - 10/31/02 04:19 PM

Hey when I ran out of candy one year. I to turned out the lites and hid.<br>I could here kids walking by saying (Jerk) Or was that their parents?<br><br>
Posted by: JonnyCat

Re: the art of handing out candy - 10/31/02 04:21 PM

I thought turning out the lights was the international symbol for out of candy <br><br>the swarm has stopped, there is a lull in the action, in my arsenal is two bags of snickers, I can save them!<br><br>

Re: the art of handing out candy - 10/31/02 04:23 PM

I will look out the windows and see if there is a lynch mob out there<br><br>
Posted by: carp

Re: the art of handing out candy - 10/31/02 04:25 PM

Yes it is an international symbol.<br>I still got kids that walked by and saw the lite turn off and said "Jerk"<br><br>I was kinda funny actualy. <br><br>
