I'm walkin on sunshine!

What a fun evening last night. All the little kiddies coming over to get treats, and sometimes, tricks, dressed up in their cute costumes. I didn't even mind the big "kiddies" only dressed in half costumes. I just insisted they ask for their goodies in the appropriate, time-honored, halloween tradition..."Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!" And then I insisted they say thank-you. How did I do that? you ask...by saying, in a very firm way, YOU'RE WELCOME! and if they didn't get the not-so-subtle hint, I would repeat it. and Repeat it, until they did get it and say in their very sheepish way, "Thanks." I didn't mind that they were feeling embarassed. If their parents didn't teach them good manners, then I will take the task on myself! And so I did.

I recently posted about how I like Halloween after all even though for many years I thought I didn't. One thing that I still don't like? The over 12 year old trick or treater. The obnoxious NO COSTUME 16 year old with a pillow case weighted with candy that had been driving from on subdivision to another to collect loot.

Thanks for stopping by...it's always nice to see a new face!
