Well, among all the other havock created by terrorism, our Halloween was very sad this year.
Of course my town is where the first anthrax letter originated, so our postal service has been marginal if at all some days. We save up our bills and drive over to Pa to mail them so we are sure they will go out. So, maybe that explains it. Then there were reports, whether bogus or not, of a man returning a large amt of candy to a retailer store, so everyone suspected the candy was tainted. I almost didn't give any out myself, but at the last minute, I thought, NO WAY! Ran out to Walmart and got all the fixings, but it was the first year I never made a jackolatern since I was about 12 years old!! Been crazy with the new job.
Anyway, my dtr was going to go bowling with her friends, turns out it was league night, so then when she suggested they go T&T'ing, the other moms would not let their kids go! We always have a poor turnout of T&Ter's , but this year we only had our doorbell ring about 5 times the whole night!!!
How was your turnout? Did you let your kids go out? Do you think we'll ever feel safe again??
