Halloween!

If you and the kids are going trick or treating tonight, please remember that there has never been a case of any one finding razor blades in apples and that only once has someone been poisoned by candy that had been tampered with, and in that case a father gave his own son a pixie stick that had been laced with poison in order to kill the kid so he could collect insurance money. Other than that case, THERE HAS NEVER EVER BEEN ANY CASES OF KIDS BEING GIVEN ANY HALLOWEEN TREAT THAT HAD BEEN TAMPERED WITH. So, holy shit, just fucking relax and let your kids be kids.

Seriously. But one of us always went with them so they wouldn't get hit by a car - witches and goblins are hard to see at night.

You've got your own "Restoring Sanity" thing going here, huh?

And now all the kids are going to the mall to trick or treat instead of going house to house. Where the hell is the fun in that?

Tell 'em to hit up as many houses as their little feet can handle and load up on the loot!

I just love giving out candy to the kids! We had about 40 tonight.
So incredibly cute & excited...and so wonderfully polite...yup, each & every one!!

We gave out close to 2000 pieces of candy at Mike's house. It was a blast. I hope he took pictures, cause his house looked creeeeeepy (even without two middle-aged people drinking wine and singing "With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm" over and over and over and over......).

I don't know what this means, but I visited friends early afternoon on Halloween (in souther New Jersey) and they had to get more candy because there were so many kids trick or treating--and they started out with 300 pieces of candy. My brother and sister-in-law had to get more too, and they generally have very few visitors.
