Halloween is coming!

All the talk has been about the weather lately. I've lived here a long time. When my kids were young we always made sure that we bought them Halloween Costumes that could fit over winter gear.

When we did go Trick or Treating, we went to a neighborhood that the houses were close together and where most of them gave out treats. Usually that was on the military bases. They also had security everywhere and they handed out little flashlights to the kids.

Then we would go to the military air passanger terminal and they put the candy through the baggage x-ray machine.

We would then go home and then dad would go through all of the candy and throw away the ones with no wrappers and eat the ones he thought was defective.

A friend, Cindy pointed out the eagle while we were on Ft. Richardson on Tuesday. It was just sitting there checking things out. The weather was of no real concern to it, but you can see the storm brewing in the background.

We usually go to Bayshore to trick-or-treat. We have friends with like sized kiddos. It would be slim pickins to only trick-or-treat Glen Alps!

When I was in Alaska 10 years ago I remember seeing many bald eagles. I was totally majestic looking. Isn't it a shame that candy from Halloween needs to be xrayed. All because of the "nuts" out there. My house is pretty isolated so I don't get any trick or treaters. But, I LOVE Halloween!

Trixie - Mine are way to old for it now. So I dress up where I volunteer at and have fun.

Meggie - They have never been endangered in Alaska. As far as I know, they have never found anything in the candy. I don't get any trick or treaters either. I've lived in this house almost 20 years and have had about 6 all that time. I love it too.

Happy Haunting, Dave!

Halloween is very quiet in my neighborhood anymore. I miss the kids in their sweet costumes.

Happy Halloween Laura! It was quiet here also, so we went out to dinner.
