I went to the store to help Bill pass out candy and we got our first trick-or-treaters at 4:23pm. We closed at 6:00 and had given candy to about 20 kids. According to the people who live in the downtown area, there were thousands, yes, thousands of kids through downtown by 9:00pm.
When we got home, our next door neighbor's grandchildren were waiting for us, I had made special baggies for them. Bill & I passed out candy to about 180 kids while we drank wine. We just about finished our second bottle when we ran out of candy. That's when our neighbors, Tom & Mitzi, came over to visit -- they had just finished off their 2nd bottle of wine. We had a terrific time. Halloween down here is SO much different than up north!!
