I shouldn’t laugh but I can’t help myself!

Yes… we are also planning to leave the porch light off tonight. Not sure what we’ll be watching yet. I wonder… are there any good, funny Godzilla parodies you can recommend?
Hmm, let me think about that and get back to you, Russ.
Speaketh thee from the voice of experience, perchance?
Ha ha. My dad told the best one. One Halloween in the 30’s he and some other Oklahoma farm boys disassembled an old curmudgeon’s farm wagon and re-assembled it on top of his barn. Dad said, “believe me, he deserved it.” Sweet vengeance.

I am with you. Porch light off. I will be enjoying the full moon instead. 🌕
And more of it, since we get to set our clocks back an hour!

Not where I live. I will make the most of the time I do have! 😁
Ah. Where do you live, Michele?
We’ll I guess I’m only slightly and sneakily curmudgeon, praying quietly that our trick or treating would be cancelled… It wasn’t, and I have to face the neighbors the rest of the year, and they know I’m home cause the garage door is broken and my car is in front… so I’ll keep the light on, albeit begrudgingly…
;>) Have fun anyway, Michele!
We’re ready with the good stuff–Hershey’s chocolate, several pieces for each trick-or-treater in a little bag. I’ve been so impressed in our “new” neighborhood (can’t believe this is our seventh Halloween in this house) how polite the children are. Almost all remember to say thank you! That deserves the reinforcement of chocolate, I think.
Probably so, but stay safe, you two softies!
At our house we have a teenage grandson visiting and I expect we’ll be sitting in the same room all looking at our phones – in the dark, except for the moon and the normal trying to remember where all our clocks are.
I get all the candy this year.
Life is good.
Funny, Mitch. And it’s okay to leave the light off this year. 🙂
Thanks, D. ;>)
Wow, that was a very specific blessing.
More effective that way. ;>)
You’re hooked on the Mandolorian too?! 😉
Yep. But disappointed that we have to wait till next Friday to see Episode 2! Meanwhile, we’re enjoying Utopia on Amazon (very dark, though) and Queen’s Gambit and Away on Netflix.
Oh, thanks for the suggestions! I’ll check them out.
Some of our neighbors were creative and figured out ways to host trick or treaters safely, but we wimped out and simply prepared a small bag of candy for the children of neighbors we knew well and left it on their porch in the afternoon, before the trick or treating started. Then we left our porch light off and had a nice dinner…..
We had the porch lights on, added ourselves to the list in our neighborhood that would be passing out untouched candy (yes, the good stuff) all in bags handled with gloves on for children’s safety then put it in a cauldron where I could see the kids through a glass screen door. Fifteen kids showed up so the rest of those 40 bags of candy will be riding on my hips for the rest of the year. I’m looking for a donation site to give it too. ;( Love your “traditional” blessing. 😉 We need to laugh more.
“The rest of those 40 bags of candy will be riding on my hips.” ;>) Thanks for your delightful input, Marlene.
