Around the Neighborhood

It was nice this morning so I decided to go for a walk in the neighborhood.   It’s interesting what you see decorating people’s homes right now.   Halloween decorating is the thing this month.   You won’t find any decorations for Halloween at my house so I enjoyed seeing what others have done.   Norm and I are still debating about passing out candy this year.   We haven’t done it for a couple of years because we don’t get that many trick-or-treaters.   There seems to be a big community event at one of the nearby parks, so why bother?

As I was going through the neighborhood my mind began to wander.   What would it be like to go trick-or-treating in Washington DC?   Can you go to the White House and ring the doorbell?   How about the halls of Congress or the Supreme Court?   I wonder if you’ll see congressmen and senators in costume?   What kind of candy would a Supreme Court justice give out?   Of course, Halloween is big business before and after.   First, you purchase of all that candy and then everyone else comes and gets it.   Then of course it’s time to visit a Washington DC dentist to fix all those cavities you’ll have gained from eating all that candy.

Somebody out to invent a healthy candy to give out for Halloween…

    Lovely questions, Karen. Now, use your imagination further and put costumes on some of those Washington bigwigs!

    Those companies lining up for bailout cash are kinda like trick-or-treaters.

    Dad had this up and I read it, and can tell you there is some good for you candy!
    Zoe was at Trader Joes and a clown gave her a sucker and I remarked, “you give candy here?” and they said it was organic!!!
