What ever happened to Halloween? Used to be a kids delight to turn an orange squash into a scary jack-o-lantern, get dressed up as a monster or pirate and try and scare the bejeesus out of younger siblings. The smell of burn pumpkin and a pillow case full of treats were a kids' valhalla. I think I've only seen one or two trick or treaters in the past ten years or so. Who got the most chocolate bars was always the contest. Some cheap skate would give away three pennys tied in a napkin. And watch out for old man Barnes as he was trying to give away some stale easter candy he got from the grandkids.
It was a dark and stormy day soon to be followed by a dark and stormy night. Better head to the store just in case. I'm always a a sucker for chocolate so all won't be a total loss.
And now for that scare that was promised in an earlier post which goes something like this:
"Ladies and gentlemen it gives us great pleasure to announce the 45th president of the United States...
Okay you can all wake up now it was only a republican wet dream. See I knew I could scare you.
