Who says you need a scary costume on Halloween?

I mean, would you take candy from a guy who looks like this:

Click to embiggen!

That’s what greeted the half dozen or so groups of kids that stopped by my backdoor this evening. All told I think we saw maybe 13 or 16 kids so they all got to grab big handfuls of candy before scampering off into the darkness once more. It took awhile to get underway as we didn’t see anyone for the first hour and a half, but once it got dark it picked up steam.

We’ve still got a crap load of candy left though.

  1. Counted just over 20 kids at our door so far (just before 9PM). Not bad considering we’re at the end of a cul-de-sac and only a couple other houses on this block have lights on. Most of the other neighbors are home, but they just don’t want to give out candy, the cheap bastards.

    We stocked up just in case this year would yield an onslaught of kids. It didn’t. Looks like plenty of Snickers bars are in our future.

    Happy Halloween to everybody!

  2. Heeeey everyone,

    Well, we were surprised.. We usually get a fair number..
    ut this year we had a small army of kids!

    I’m guessing 50 at least. More kids then I’ve seen in a few years.. They were younger then usual, too.
      Last year half of them were teenagers. Heh.

  3. I saw this latest entry with the picture of Les. And at the bottom it says ( Click to embiggen ) My first thought was ( No Thanks !!! ) hehe

    But after studying it for a bit, I gave in and embiggened. Now I am interested in Les’s Cholesterol.

    Oh ( HAPPY HALLOWEEN ) We spent the night on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. No trick or treat. But I did watch the Sun come up this morning. Buety unmatched.

  4. I got about 30 or 40 here. I didn’t recognize one of them from the neighborhood. They still got my candy though.

    The parents that are too lazy to actually walk with the kids and drive next to them in a car really annoy me though. Would it kill them to get some exercise and spend some quality time with their kids?

  5. Luckily, I always buy stuff I like to eat, just in case. This year only two showed up, so I’ll have plenty of snacks for the next few weeks.

  6. My young kids carved their own little pumpkins this year. Some assholes took all four of our carved jack-o-lanterns and smashed them in the street in front of our house.

    Teenagers will be teenagers, but my six year old girl cried about it. My seven yo boy said he wanted to make them pay for it. (He meant literally reimburse us. So practical!) It’s a small thing, but it’s weird being a parent and slowly introducing your kids to the world’s ways. I dont want them naive, but I value their sweet innocence too. Why cant people just leave other people’s pumpkins alone?
      I blame Billy Corgin. LOL
