OK,  one more Halloween story...last evening, one of my first trick or treaters was a teeny two year old.
He stood on my porch with his bag open, looking up at me expectantly.  

Child's Mother (in background):   What do you say, honey?

Child (with a big happy smile):  Happy Thanksgiving!

oh, yes....

Speaking of Halloween, we had people   who didn't need costumes to be their characters, at school today...the Energizer Bunny (chocolate for breakfast),  many zombies (chocolate for dinner, snack, breakfast and lunch), and several of the Seven Dwarves:  Sleepy, Sneezey, Dopey and Grumpy.

Make that lots of Grumpies.

And that was just the adults...
