The yard is mine...ALL MINE...I no share...unless it is grunt work too yucky for me to touch...and because I am not put off by cow or chicken flop it is mostly mine
The gutters are all his...I can not bring myself to dig out that slop. I tried at my grandmothers house one summer and her neighbors 75 year old husband came over and saved me
I thought because there are so many children in our neighborhood we would have a huge turn out of t-or-ters last night. We had 200 pieces of candy and as dusk set upon us I began to panic. I sent the man I love for MORE! He returned 600 more pieces. When he returns he tells me that there are children asking for canned foods & UNICEF...We RAID the pantry as for lose change we are out of luck. As the sunset and with out one single t-or-ter to come to my door I began to panic...WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH 800 PIECES OF CANDY!!!
They were already at my neighbors, were we to new to the neighborhood to be trusted? My light was on my door OPEN...my little blue house is too cute to be the creepy house, isn't it?
As I was about to shut the door they came one by one, in groups of five crowding my door so I couldn't open it up for them and at eight it ended. Today DB returns to the office with 200 piece of candy still in bags and we have a basket on the counter that holds 100 pieces....so as it turns out we had no need for extra candy...and I was b a d handing out more than two pieces (some mothers don't like that at ALL)...I may have had a few pieces myself
I am wondering did you have a lot of little beggars at your door? Did you have many that seamed too old? How do you feel about kids at your door that have been driven in from other neighborhoods?
