Tonight is the official Halloween between 5 and 7 PM in our town when the little beggars come to scam us out of candy.
A lesson on how to get something for nothing!
I am happy to report that only a few kids showed up to get Snicker's bars. Recies peanut butter patties, or M&M peanuts.
( i wonder if the pencils we passed out a few years ago has something to do with the low interest in our home.)
Thank you kids! I now have about 3 months of candy available for snacks1
WOOPIE WOOPIE !!!!
What did you do to scare them off; leave your lights off?
I threatened to have them face the reality of a Model T.
crap -I can't figure out how to edit
Try - I threatened the little beggars to be afflicted with the reality of the the Model T
Leave your "pet" skunk on the porch. You won't need to buy any trick or treat candy next year.
I just posted this one on another thread. I stepped out to take it on my deck a couple years ago.
No Trick-or-Treat" here. The advantage of last house at the end of the road back in the woods. Actually, I kind of miss them. (The Trick-or-Treaters that is)
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Accuweather is telling Detroiters our real feel temperature will be in the twenties (F) tonight. They are also forecasting some snow. It Might be an interesting Hallowee'en.
I love Halloween!
When I was a kid, my brother and I went all over the place with pillowcases and filled them up. Sometimes if the weather was good we would go back out after going home to empty our bags. Of course, nowadays the parents make the rounds with the kids.
I figure it's my duty to help the kids enjoy Halloween as much as I did, so I hand out full size KitKat bars (not the scrawny ones in the bags). The cutest kids are the little ones that are too shy to even say "Trick or Treat".
I live in a subdivision with a lot of young families, this year I bought over $120.00 worth of KitKat bars, I hope it's enough!
We have snow this a.m. 33 degrees with wind chill of 26 and winds at 25-35 mph. yare is a mess with all decorations we get about 200 kids each year, Bob
Halloween is my birthday, so I always had to choose between a birthday party and trick or treating. Being an intelligent kid, I realized that if I had a party, my parents would just put all the candy / cake on the table and I wouldn't have to walk all over creation to get it. Needless to say, I've literally never been trick or treating in my life.
Mark: do you have a Casket in you t dump bed? My wife is still mad at me for moving into our house "Because it had enough room for our old cars but the houses are scattered so we don't get trick or treeters
No casket, I just do the candy bit. It's my neighbors that go over the top with the house decorations. The one across the street and one house down has a home-made casket by his door, and another neighbor has one of those inflatable tie-down statues in her yard.
The weather here is supposed to be cold and windy, that may reduce the number of visitors this year.
Send some of the little beggers down here. We live in a rural area and would love to see more!
I managed to factor my T into my Halloween house. It was a big hit.
I was tempted to put the Flivver in the driveway as a photo-prop for the trick-or-treaters, but then figured some juvenile delinquent might egg it and decided to play it safe, instead. _Sure enough, someone shaving-creamed my house. _Good thing I kept Penelope in the garage.
We had great weather last night, clear and a little cold, but not windy. I bought $120.00 worth of KitKat bars and they were gone by 7:20 pm!
Several parents were pushing their youngest trick-or-treaters around in strollers because otherwise they couldn't keep up with the older kids.
Zac - My sister's birthday is also the 31th. I have always claimed that she is a vampire and avoided her on Halloweeny because I know she was out to get me!
I had a great-aunt that was born on October 31. Her real, first name, was Halloween. For us, she was always aunt Halley, and one of my favorite relatives.
