Halloween Hoopla

Platoons of imps march up and down my street, Threatening mayhem if I don't give them a treat! There are cowboys, Indians and phantoms galore, Holding me hostage at my own front door! They present their goodie bags for me to fill; (Giving them an apple doesn't at all thrill). Sure, they'd prefer a Reese's or Snickers treat, But, by jove, I'm keeping them for me to eat!

G'day Bob … that's the spirit of Halloween. Allow the kids to watch you eating the lollies and telling them it'll save a trip to the dentist - very ghoulish indeed Bob - Lindsay

- No, an apple ... they'll throw it in the garden ... it must be candies of the best quality, Bob :) - Not many people celebrate Halloween in Norway ... but it's getting more and more over the years ... and big business :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

Thank you, Anne-Lise. Halloween seems to be an American fad but I think it is catching on in other countries. Always nice to hear from you - Bob
