Living a bit off the beaten track, we don't get zillions of kids trick or treating, but we get enough to make the night fun. We had witches, Goth Girls, Spiderman, cowboys and a giant chicken named Arnie Schwartzen-EGGer, among a host of others who collectively seemed to have enough sugary swag to carry them well past next Easter. One of the Mom's came dressed as a Nurse -- she may find her services needed quickly if the kids get ahead of the curve eating all that stuff!
The great thing is you just never know who's going to drop by. At one point, in the living room, I discovered the most unlikely trio -- Capt. Jack Sparrow, Tina Turner and Marilyn Munroe had all dropped by at the same time!
While I love to carve pumpkins, they never last. In fact, the challenge is to keep them intact until at least the candles burn out! The deer move in, and that's the end of Jack 'o Lantern!
Oh well, I suppose the deer, too, enjoy a little treat at this special evening in the year!
