The Wizard of Oz

Last night was Trick or Treat night in our little town. Yes, I know there's a weekend closer to the real day. This is small town Tradition! (cue Tevya)

Besides, the Halloween Parade is over the weekend. And a wedding. But I digress.

The favored costume this year seems to be Dorothy. I had 'em in all shapes and sizes. Some with dogs (stuffed) others without. We had Things 1 & 2, a couple of Star Wars characters, one or two LOTR folks and lots of pre-teen (and teen) floozies.

Only 2 of the littlest had forgotten their line, but I was patient and waited. Only about 3 forgot to say "Thank you. " I was gratified.

Traffic seemed lighter this year, but that could just be me.

We gave: Skittles and Starburst, Sweetarts, Blo-pops, Runts, and Nerds. There were Bottlecaps, too, but I ate them all myself. We have Blo-pops left, but not too many.

Sparky got into the spirit. She stood by the door, watching the parade go by, then scampered to safety about 3' away when kids came on the porch. There were no escape attempts this year.
