Soulful Sunday: The Day After Halloween
Since it is the day after Halloween, I thought this was appropriate. I remember as a kid trying to avoid the houses that didn't give the 'good stuff' and then comparing notes the next day at school with other kids to see who gave out full sized candy bars, cans of pop, and other cavity creating confections, and to try and remember to go to those houses the next year... I never got a toothbrush though. Good thing....those people would have gotten toilet papered for sure!
Thankfully, living out (WAYYYY out) in the country means that we don't get trick-or-treaters, and thus don't have to worry about getting egged or TP'd for not giving out good candy. Being about half a mile from the nearest house means we have to watch our mailbox getting smashed occasionally (not yet, thank goodness), but that can happen at any time, not just at Halloween, lol. In 7 years, we haven't had a single person come for candy...though that may be also in part to the fact that Brennan makes us sit in near total darkness "just in case" someone wants to bus into our remote area and try their luck....
Have a great Sunday,
