Longing for Old Days

It was never this quiet in the old days.

NEVER…..at least back home in the city.

Our neighborhood was known for it’s trick or treating. We were a corner house where single neighbors came out to party with us outside with beer,pizza and hoagies; and the locals kiddos knew they could clean up at our house-a virtual one stop shopping of treats. The neighbors and ourselves enjoyed seeing what the current trends in costumes were.

I had my neighbor bring her 3 year old son and 3 week old boy out today around three. That has been it.

Kasia has had her walk in the rare event there were goblins in our route.

It’s 6:46 pm now. I will hang in there until 8 pm.

Oh well…can’t say I didn’t give it a shot.

  1. When we lived in rural Boulder county,we didn’t have any trick or treaters. Our driveway was long & windy.
    Now that we’re in a neighborhood, we have little ones coming by. I hope to see plenty since I got carried away and bought a LOT of candy this year! Then, night night!
