It's All Trick, No Treat

It looks like the neighbourhood's going through another cycle. When we first arrived, we ponied up to the little Hallowe'en terrorists for quite a few years and then as the kids got older the numbers dropped off. Hell, one kid was four, now he's got a four year and is still living in the same house.

This year I see more house decorating and many more strollers than has been for a long time. There's no one here that goes all wacky about it trying to mimic a theme park, but people do get into the spirit of things, a cobweb here, a tombstone there.

So, looks like it's off to Costco to lay in supplies of chips and candy and absolutely nothin' healthy.

Remember: Nobody gets out of here alive.
