Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

Trick-or-Treat Confession


I forgot today was Halloween, turned on my front porch light, and settled in for an evening of leisure.

Door bell rings. I wonder who could be disturbing my peace and quiet.

Go to the front door, and there are my neighbors. Mom, Dad, and darling little 2-year-old-decked-out-for-Halloween-cowboy. Not only did I forget it was Halloween, but am totally candyless.

I stammered out some excuse about forgetting it was Halloween, only having grown children, not used to getting trick-or-treaters in this neighborhood. (never have had ANY the whole time we've lived here.) Shamefacedly begged their forgiveness. Promised to bring candy to them on a non-Halloween day.

Basically, I'm a pitiful neighbor. Be thankful YOU don't live next door to me.

THEY were great, gracious, and merciful neighbors. They accepted my stammering, stuttering excuses with smiles.

I'm buying candy for that darlin' little cowboy TOMORROW.

Well, atleast you were kind enough to acknowledge their presence. I brought the kiddos over and we stood at the front door and no one answered. :)

BTW, tell my fellow freakazoid that I cannot access comments anymore on her blog. I've tried and tried. I can't read the comment section nor leave a comment. Sorry. :(

Anon - - - you gotta RING the doorbell if you want me to come to the door. ;-)

I wonder why Anon can't access the comments on your blog, I seem to be able to get into them just fine, Keri.

One year we forgot candy and had to hand out quarters...fortunately (for us, that is) only a family or two stopped by. :)

We used to do this to people when John was small. There aren't many kids on our street. One year, he got a handfull of pennies that included a rare one. He was very happy!

I used to buy candy in hopes for trick-or-treaters and stopped when I kept eating it all myself. I know, many suggested "take it to work", are you kidding? I don't get my hands on that much chocolate, unless of course, its Christmas...DeBrands...mmmmm...

LOL!!!

Well, all this candy is at SCHOOL, where I don't have much time to delve into it myself.
