Thoughts on Halloween

What a nice day today was. I went out in the morning to get my hair cut and all the stylists were dressed up for Halloween. My favorite one was Raggedy Ann.

Next I went to the bank and there one of the tellers was dressed as a jailbird. Hope he didn't get into my account!

The grocery store had several Batmen and my cashier was dressed as a Geisha lady.She was done up perfectly but I fear her white makeup was scaring some of the younger children.

Finally when I arrived home and thought I would take a short nap (ha) the doorbell started ringing and I got to see several ghosts, again Batmen and Robots. Most of the children were so polite, thanking me when they got candy. A few just took the candy and left without saying anything. Oh well, takes all kinds of people to make the world what it is.

This evening appears to be the daddies, dressed up along with their children coming by to trick or treat. Guess the moms are tired out from trekking around this afternoon or perhaps they had to stay home to do their share answering the doorbell.

Anyway, it's been fun seeing the little ones all dressed in their favorite costumes and I look forward to a repeat next year.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE! Don't eat too much of the kids candy now!

I'm so glad you are finally somewhere that the kids come trick or treating. I know you have missed that the last few places you have lived. It is fun to see what creative things people come up with for costumes, and the kids are the most adorable.

Happy Halloween!
