    Default Halloween fun

    We had the best year ever... so far. We might get some more. The little
    ones were adorable and a lot of them had cute jokes and poems to tell. One
    wee one sang "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." It was such fun.

    There are parties all over the street for the adults. It's all last minute
    too. I'm going across the street and I threw together a meat and cheese
    platter with some chutney. I'm also taking crackers and a cheese spread
    that I bought at the deli this morning.

    Happy Halloween All!!! BOO........

    Geez, Michael, I think I had 8 kids, and 1 of them I had to flag
    down. Halloween was dead this year, no pun intended. The
    worst ever.

    Oh Michael do you suppose those impromptu parties are the kids
    plotting to get their parents out of their house and into somebody
    else's? That way the kids home alone get to scarf as much of their
    treats as they can hold - not to mention eating the leftover treats
    from their own houses!

    Once again, not a single kid came to our house. I even bought stuff this
    year because there are so new families with young kids and I thought
    they might come around. It's a good thing that I only bought 6 small
    chocolate bars. Less temptation.


    Meanwhile.... we had a great dinner. My wife's cousin came and since he
    always cooks a great meal for us we tried to do something special for
    him. We started off with a nice Pumpkin and Butternut Squash soup for a
    first course. The entree was garlic baked Scampi with tiny new
    potatoes, broccoli spears and pan fried cherry tomatoes with basil. For
    dessert I made a Gran Marnier Souffle. The souffle was not perfect. It
    was supposed to cook in 30 minutes but is was still a little wet inside.
    It probably needed about 3 minute longer. All in all, it was pretty good.

    I live in a Halloween-prone area. I get up to ninety in a night. I have
    seventy so far and will turn off my lights and live in the dark soon.
    Yup. I count.

    15 kids in four groups so far. Normally it would be winding down
    around now but with daylight time still on, it may run later
    than other years.

    (This is the first time I can ever recall the parents of the kids
    handing me election literature as part of trick-or-treating.)

    Man, you must have to buy a lot of candy. Yikes.
    Every year I get a big bunch of candy bars, and every
    year I'm let down. When I first moved here, 30 candy bars
    had me nervous I'd run out. I still buy as if it was like those
    days.

    Not in the sticks. I just gave 87 kids candy and turned off the light at
    8:10 PM. I shortchanged myself this year. Tough economic times blah
    blah. It was quality candy, I might add. I'm a Snickers, Milky Way, etc
    kind of guy and tend to give the smaller children two pieces. Early on,
    I give away two pieces to older kids as well. Seven bags of nineteen
    pieces were doled out. I've never run out before and am ashamed of
    myself.

    Blasting caps? You too? I grew up in rural Nevada and was warned of them
    for good reason. Apparently, our forbearers cast them around for future
    generations of kids to blow up their hands with. We were also warned
    about mine shafts which kill a few citizens around here now and then.

    Our weather was extremely pleasant. No wind to extinguish it, my
    terracotta Halloween "pumpkin" (it's not a pumpkin) stayed lit without a
    worry. I sat outside on the edge of a planter in the yard, beneath the
    yard light, and handed out candy to the little muffins and to the big
    muffins. I met quite a few children from the area as well as their
    parents. I'm guessing I had maybe 50-55 kids, including two high school
    senior girls. They were out for their last hurrah. :-) We enjoyed
    conversation about our state's ugly senatorial race -- my quiz question
    for the teens this year was who the third party candidate is. They
    didn't know. Nor did the last two boys who came. They were all good
    natured about my grilling them, though. (That's not the OB food
    reference!) After sitting outside for an hour, I came in and made Rob
    take care of the rest of the trick-or-treaters. Cute bunch of kids.

    OB Candy: Twix, Reese's PB cups with caramel, Butterfingers.

    Same here, and I don't live out in the country.
    I think I moved into this house in 1981, and
    I have never had a trick-or-treater here.

    At my previous residence, which was definitely
    in a built-up area, I didn't have any either.

    And the one before that, on a busy street in
    Berkeley, also did not receive any.

    I think this practice is largely dead. Partly
    because of parent's fears of letting kids out
    at night, and partly out of fear of being
    poisoned by strangers.

    I remember when I was a kid, I used to cover

    Our street has no traffic and only a few kids. Not a single one showed up.

    We didn't have as many kids this year as last.

    But last year the kids and their friends did a big display out in the
    front yard and dressed up to hand out candy. So we not only got the
    usual foot traffic, people driving past would pull over and come up to
    check it out.

    We carried the fireplace around front to the driveway and laid
    a fire out of the remains of my poor, dead plum tree.

    They set up the shade shelter (a tent without sides). Inside, a card
    table topped with masses of dribbly candles, gourds, a skull and a
    basket of apples. Just behind the table, my dressmaker's dummy, topped
    with a skull and cloaked in a hooded cape

    In front of the table they put three bales of hay arranged in a U-shape,
    with the open end facing outwards. Covering it with a dark sheet, with
    the dogs' cooling tank with cauldrons of candy and bottled water set on
    top created a space that a 13 year-old boy wearing skeleton gloves could
    hide in.

    DD had gotten herself a lady vampire ensemble and a long black wig.
    Framed in solid black, DD, the whitest human on the planet, virtually
    glowed in the dark. A wore a long black gown cinched with a green
    basque and a deep purple hooded cloak over the top. R wore a black
    velvet pirate shirt over black leggings and black boots, and a black
    crushed velvet hooded cloak.

    The only light came from the sweet-smelling fire and the candles. The
    effect was genuinely creepy. When a group of trick-or-treaters would
    approach A and R would stand to either side of the entrance to the
    shelter, arms crossed over their chests, heads bowed, hoods pulled down
    to conceal faces.

    Then DS, A and R took turns scaring the bejesus out of the local kids
    and their parents. DS would wait until they approached to collect their
    candy from the cauldron. Then he'd reach out and tickle their ankles.
    Basically the only thing A and R had to do to freak someone out was
    move, even a little bit. People tended to assume that they were
    dummies, just like the one at the back. R, though, took it to the next
    level. She'd throw her had back and scream at the top of her lungs.

    You would be amazed at how many parents will just flat out bolt, leaving
    their kid(s) behind. One guy tripped over a tombstone while running
    away and snapped the stake right off.

    And it's human nature to react to a major freakout by dragging a new
    victim over and watching from the street, hopping from foot to foot,
    giggling madly, while *they* get their dose of adrenaline. So we had
    tons of repeat customers.

    M, one of DS's younger packmates from around the block, came up with his
    mom. She declined to have anything to do with the display, choosing to
    warm her buns next to the fire.

    M advanced to within maybe five feet of the straw table, bent down and
    said, "I see you under there with your skeleton hands. You scared me
    last year and the year before, too, but you're not getting me this
    time." There was a muffled "Okay" and the hands withdrew. So, all full
    of himself, M advances to collect his sugar and R lets out a
    blood-curdling scream. He went straight up and hit the ground running.

    The next day my belly muscles were sore from so much laughing. Man, I
    love Halloween!

    Remembering the days when my kids and their cousins were little. We'd
    have the entire family over here for italian sausages/hotdogs and
    other picnic type food to scarf during trick-r-treating breaks.

    The other day, I was at Sav-On (soon to become CVS)
    and saw a decoration lit by an electric bulb which
    was a jack-o-lantern motif executed -- instead of
    within a pumpkin motif -- within a baseball motif.

    That's right, a baseball blown up to even larger
    proportions than a softball, with cutouts for the
    eyes, nose, and mouth in the jack-o-lantern style.

    It seemed so absurd to me. Somebody somewhere is
    paid to design crap like this. I suppose if you
    lived in India or mainland China, it would be a
    reasonable strategy to try combining various popular
    motifs and see which gained traction among customers.
    Baseballs and jack-o-lanterns are both round, or
    nearly so, so why not combine them? Or maybe it's
    a sign of something more sinister.

    It's like there was some malevolent force probing
    how severely they could distort our Judeo-Christian
    culture about Halloween without being detected.
    That's right! We are under attack by evil forces!
    Examine your Halloween decorations and check to see
    which were made in countries which do not practice
    Halloween! These items created by non-believers
    erode the Halloween culture we have inherited from
    our ancestors!

    Being on a boat in a country that doesn't "trick or
    treat" (Australia), we weren't sure how the evening would pan out.
    Knowing that the marina was full to the brim with a very international
    group of cruisers we guessed that some of the boats knew about this
    custom.

    Fortunately we were prepared with a bag of Snickers bars when the
    seven "boat kids" came by to show off their costumes. They were all
    darling (ballerina, Darth Vader, pirate or just painted up to look
    different) and it was fascinating to see their reactions when we gave
    them the candy. Shy surprise is the best I can come to describing
    it.

    I can say it was so much more gratifying than the crazy herds that
    would ascend on our house back in the States.

    I love the idea of having the kids do something to get their "loot"
    like tell a joke, recite a poem or sing a song. Well done.

    I didn't bother to buy any. If any had showed up, I'd probably just
    dropped some hot cocoa packets in their bags. I keep those on hand in
    cold weather.

    Sounds like Leonard has a lot of them. Our last trick or treater was at
    about 8:30. Normally by 7 we don't get any more. Ours just gave us a poem
    or a joke. Not literature... thank Gawd. I'd have probably thrown them off
    the doorstep for that crap.
