Halloween

Very general discussion about absolutely anything at all, go wildly off topic and chuck stuff about. Chit-chat. Witty banter. Crash air-planes. Bring your own "lemonade"

Happy Halloween.
We had one lot of trick or treaters that I can only describe as freeloading teens. No costumes.
I have a strange desire to open a couple of bottles of tomato sauce and throw them round and rip the heads off a few toys.

Things are just starting around here. Usually they swarm about like sharks. I'm staring at the pathetic bowl of candy that I have, It won't last an hour...

And Happy Halloween!!!

This one 'kid' comes up to me in a hoodie and sweatpants. I say to him 'you're older than I am!'
'How old are you?' He asks.
'15'
'16, you're never to old for free candy!'

I turned our Hall light off at 9.30 pm. Late enough for small kids and I wasn't bothered about bigger ones as over here they tend to go to parties rather than trick or treating. At 11pm I accidentally switched it on again instead of another light and blow me, there was the silhouette of two tall people and they banged on the door. I ignored them and flipped off the light again. There's one thing chancing your arm at a decent time but not as late as that.

I was very relieved to discover my car hadn't got flour and eggs over it.

No trick or treating around here in the 'burbs, mainly due to the fact that 99% of our local population would probably celebrate Chinese New Year instead [February 19 in 2015 & February 8 in 2016], & have no clue what Halloween represents...we always hear firecrackers in the streets, although supposedly 'illegal' to purchase or use in our state, without permission or a special exemption 'permit' since the early 1970's etc. :D
They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.

When I first moved here we had some small children, looked like perhaps boy scouts cubs; I had got in some apples, because I don't approve of too many sweets. They were really impressed with the apples and went away very happy. 8-) Haven't seen any in the last couple of years, however. A custom copied from America that I think has pretty much died out here now.
If there's one thing certain in this uncertain world it is that Algy won't go home without us.

We didn't get anyone here which was nice. We don't buy lollies for other people. Our electric gate stopped working so it stayed open but no one came.
