I missed our TOTS this year. Seriously, in the years gone by, there were so many. Some of them were driven in. They'd trip over each other. Like a crowd scene in a movie. I'd be telling kids "No, honey, you can't come inside the skull fence--it's not safe." Adults would ask if they could take pictures. Well, of course! There were times when all Grumpy said was "Here you go, here you go, here you go" it was like a dam break of children (and shameless big teens and adults) all over us. People brought their dogs (I always had a few doggie biscuits) We sometimes ran out by seven-thirty, and Grumpy would make a quick candy run. And our neighbor would donate a few sacks to hold us over. People took pictures of our display. Kids whose families had moved away came by--our former next door neighbor brought her daughter. We tried to take pics of our yard, but they always looked sad and boring. In real life, it looked pretty good, for a house under a street light. The damn fog machine never worked for sheeyat though. This year, we got one that said to add ice, but it wasn't much better.

This year was sad. But not too sad, since the kids that came got the big good candy bars,and they were happy, and maybe, word will get around?

Halloween parties and trick or treating in the neighborhoods are now prohibited and you will go to jail if you are caught doing these things all because of the deadly covid. So have a good time, I dare you.
Found myself in the Matrix and took the red pill. Now I want the blue pill and my bottle and leave me alone.
