Well, the witching hour is almost over and all the little goblins have gone to bed. My two
grd-dtrs came home with enough candy to last until Christmas. However, I waited at home
to be the doorman at our house. It was very lonely. We had 9 trick or treaters in all!
And one was a tiny tot who couldn't speak English and stared at me with huge eyes, wondering
why I was giving her a chocolate bar. And two streets over, my grd-dtrs were cleaning up the
neighbourhood in treats. It is dwindling year after year. I think it is a sign of the times, and
with all the recalls on food items lately, a safety concern to parents of little ones. It is a shame,
as I remember as a child the fun we had and in those days we got home-made candy apples,
and home baking, with our treats. Innocense doesn't last long in today's world, unfortunately.
