According to my WordPress dashboard, it is actually Nov. 1, but here on my couch, it is still Oct. 31. Trick or treating in Herkimer begins in just 24 minutes, that is officially. I fully expect early birds as well as late comers. For heavens’ sake, who doesn’t like free candy? Oh, I know, YOU probably don’t. Fine, all the more for the rest of us.
Um, I don’t expect to get any free candy. Steven and I will be handing out free candy to kids in costume. I am looking forward to seeing the costumes. If only yesterday’s sick headache hadn’t come back, my life would be perfect. Don’t worry; I’ll wear gloves to hand out the candy, which is wrapped. I won’t share my germs around. And if I do give someone my cold, they can’t say I never gave ’em nuthin’.
This is actually a shot of our front porch last year, but it looks remarkably similar this year. Next year I want to get some grave stones and a spooky-looking fence for the front yard. Maybe a pair of glowing eyeballs for the tree, which it pretty monstrous all on its own, I think.
My challenge tonight is to not eat the candy while I’m passing it out. Well, not eat too much of it. Oh, how I love Halloween! I think I will continue my celebration through Thanksgiving at least. For one reason, I still have plenty of monster movies saved on my DVR. Maybe I’ll watch a few this weekend and write blog posts about them. Happy Halloween, everyone!
