I hope everyone had a happy halloween. We had quite a few trick-or-treaters and even a few homemade costumes, yay! My favorite was the child who was a box of redvines. I have noticed that the little ones are polite and that their parents remind them to say thank you; however, the teenagers that come to the door aren't polite at all ... they grab the candy and take more than one without asking and don't say anything at all. Hopefully they are the exception and not the rule. At 8:30pm I closed up shop and turned off the porch light and closed the screen door. The dogs were very happy when that happened because they had to be shut in the kitchen during all the excitement.
My friend Calamity Kim sent me this lovely card to mark the occasion. I do believe that she carved the girl stamp herself, right Kim? Thank you so much ... she's hanging on the bulletin board now so that she can keep me company.
