Great story... It reminded me of when we bought our first house, nine years ago, and could finally hand out candy to trick-or-treaters. I bought this really horrible mutant mask and answered the door with it about five times before I took it off to stop making the little kids cry. Actually, it was kind of funny... One boy even heard about me: I opened the door without the mask and he said, "Hey, his mask isn't that scary-lookin'!"

You guys have a definite advantage over us... It was in the 40's Halloween night, which wasn't so bad except a cold drizzly rain started up around 6:30. Still, my kids didn't let that stop them from soldiering forward.

weather here was beautiful. But we didn't get as many trick or treaters as usual and have ended up with a lot of leftover candy. I just brought it into work and put it out in the lounge, hope my coworkers enjoy it!

My co-workers have already eaten more than half the candy I brought in. Wow.
