Trick or Treat!

It's Hallowe'en and I've set out a large container of chocolate bars inside the front door. When I was a youngster, communities were teeming with children (post-war baby boomers). Hallowe'en must have been torture for the adults then. Today it seems that Hallowe'en has faded into memory. Even when my boys - now in their twenties - were trick-or-treating there were few children around. Now, there aren't any! We haven't had a trick-or-treater to our door in at least four years. I can't say that I really regret it. I never did think much of Hallowe'en. In the larger cities there are always 'home invasion' incidents reported - thugs taking advantage of people readily opening their doors. At least that isn't a concern here (yet), thank goodness.

It looks like I've got a big job ahead of me. I bought enough chocolate bars to serve a mob and there's no mob. I wouldn't want all that chocolate to go to waste!

Happy Birthday to Debra!

I'm back, I'm back, I'm back!

Okay, I actually chose to be incommunicado for a while there.... Yesterday, though, I tried desperately to get into my blog so that I could participate in Debra's "Sunday Salon". I kept getting messages that my account had been de-activated. The pain! It's one thing to choose not to blog, but it's something else entirely to be told that one isn't allowed on the playground. I wonder why the account was de-activated? I wasn't away that long...
