    It's soaking wet at my place.

    I want to go to my neighbors houses who have Socialist propaganda in their yard and ask them if I can have their TV, fridge or couch. When I get told "hell no" then I'll explain that's how this system they support works.

    Next year I'll have a sign that says "Free candy. Come work and I'll pay you in candy." That's still free right?

    We just took our 3 year old daughter out with her cousin about the same age. Only went to a couple houses. My daughter hates strangers and wasn't too excited about going up to doors. She's a baby. My baby.

    But she was super excited to dress up as Dorthy from wizard of OZ

    One year, I gave away my late dogs Milk Bones to the 18 yr old street punks that couldn't even be bothered to dress up.

    Zero kids come to my place for candy... loong dark driveway wraps around our front pasture lined with scrubby brush, past a few spooky old out buildings, then a few hundred feet to the house... the old farm house built in 1909. Sounds like a horror movie to me...

    Lewiston must be seem a truly strange place to some...
    ...We like our neighbors here AND their kids! (some we like better than others)

    Even with rain (heavy at times), temps were in the mid 60's so we had a pretty good turnout (a bit over a hundred kids). At 9 cents each for the juice pouches we gave out, it was under $10 bucks total, so it was cheaper than a pizza and we got to see a 3-4 hour parade of the neighbor's kids dressed as everything from tiny princesses, a kid around 11 yrs old in a darn good MOMmade version of Marine blues (his rifle was an old wooden stock with a black broomstick barrel), Princess Leia with a supersoaker "blaster", hobbits, and a few 2-3 year old Yodas, Li'l cowboys WITH cap guns....
    ...the good part was I can't think of a single kid that didn't say thank you.:)

    Sometimes a day of "leave it to Beaver" does a body good.

    Quite the costume!

    We quit years back. My youngest ended up having traumatic evenings for about a week after Halloween. He is uber sensitive and he can't go by yard decorations without having problems. So we quit. I don't give out because it's not fair to him to see it at the house. Gremlins the movie gave him issues.
