Apparently Buzz Lightyear was the #1 costume here for 5-9 year old boys. Handed candy to at least 4 of them (and we only got a few kids knocking...)

Last night the people watching was wonderful at one of the local bars...Very impressed with the costumes adults come up with!

Top one is "Maj Nelson" with me...and the bottom shot - reflecting the vibe - but not the overall quality of the costumes of the patrons. Shouldn't adults trick-or-treating at bars get free drinks??

In our 'ville the trick-or-treaters were out last night. The steps up to our house aren't lit well, so DW and I set up camp at the end of the driveway and handed out candy. We only got about 20 takers, but had fun talking to all the neighbors and seeing the costumes and pets.

Tonight we went to a neat spot in Dayton. The local Greek Orthodox church lets a group set up jack-o-lanterns on the hill leading up to the church itself. There were over 400 of them. A lot of creativity and craftsmanship. No charge, no commercialism, just folks having fun.

Happy Halloween everyone!

An interesting tidbit...the term "Trick or Treat" was first recorded as having occurred in Blackie, Alberta (80 km southeast of Calgary). I learn something new every day....

How sweet it is: origins of 'trick-or-treat' traced to Canada
I can only be nice to one person today! Today is not your day...tomorrow doesn't look good either.

Anyone looking at my 'costume' would figger I was homeless as I wore an old tee shirt and sweats...

There's no need to complicate, our time is short..
