Halloween 2006

Well, Halloween has just ended, and sadly there were not as many displays in town as last year. The trolley went out of service during the summer, so there was no longer a tour of Halloween houses, causing less decorations. Of course, we decorated our house.

We also decorated the dry cleaners where Bill works.

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!!
