So how many of us are hiding out tonight, this Halloween? Myself... My wife is traveling, the daughter is with friends and it's just me, my iPad, the cat, dog and my xd9sc. Didn't turn the lights on and kept the house dark. I'll just nick some candy from my daughter when she gets home. ;)
our city had it lastnight.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. ~Burke, Edmund
Proud owner of a G35. And yes I carry it concealed.
I turned off most of the lights and went to the back bedroom and made a hundred 9mm rounds and decapped and sized another 200 cases.
We live on a fairly isolated road, and have never had one trick-or-treater ring the doorbell in the sixteen years I have been here.

Live out in the country haven’t had a trick or treater in years.

Good turnout tonight. Kids for the candy, parents for the barley pops. Good neighborhood.
This year we took off. Our neighborhood is popular and gets over 1000 kids in two hours. Some neighbors actually use one of those clicker things to keep track, , We find many of the kids are just not taught any manners. Many run up and try to grab candy,then their parents start screaming at them. Keeping our boxer dogs in was tough,they heard all the people walking down the street,wanted out every few minutes.hard to watch t.v. with all the barking.
Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.
When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.
My 11 yo scored... The raid is on... Actually I told her it was candy redistribution. She didn't get it but said it was wrong... Out of the mouth of babes.
It's canceled here due to Sandy. The ghosts & witches and hobgoblins are NOT going to like that!

I'm at work til midnight. I plan on raiding my kids candy bags for peanut butter cups when I get home.
My daughter helped hand out candy tonight. We were thinking the turnout would be low because of the weather. It's no hurricane, but my gutters were definitly overflowing because they couldn't keep up. But we ended up with a lot of kids.
Walk softly ...
Half-time handing out candy, the other half escorting my child through the neighborhood.
It's much different then when I was a kid. It seemed that almost all of the homes participated when I did it, whereas, maybe 1/3 seem to give out candy now.
My opinion is Halloween is a great opportunity to "survey" your neighbors. A lot can be seen in the behaviors and respectfulness (or lack of) in kids.
You can also meet some of the more distant neighbors that are not right next door but nearby.
Trick or treating is a great community activity that I believe is a good and needed thing in a society that is becoming more and more distant from the neighbor next door.
