    Get Any Trick or Treaters?

    I haven't had any in 10yrs.I miss them.Use to have lots of fun with them when we lived in town.Back in the 70's we lived in town and had a tree next to the sidewalk with a real low limb.Had an old white cat and she would lay on that limb and hang a paw down when the kids walked by.I use to tell the kids that was my albino black cat.Some would believe and then I'd get some uh-uh's from others.Wife would spend two-three days making treats up.Wish we could turn the clock back more than an hour.

    Re: Get Any Trick or Treaters?

    Oh I know what you mean! We live on a rural road, so we wouldn't get many anyway, but it is so sad to read the local newspapers of these very small towns around here, and see how most of the candy is handed out downtown because of safety concerns, fewer and fewer people can believe it's safe to take their children to the neighbors house. Very sadly, that's understandable. I miss the days of "The Great Pumkin" too. However, we did wake up to this in our yard:

    Re: Get Any Trick or Treaters?

    Come to my neighborhood! I had 76 trick or treaters last night. I enjoyed most of them, but found that only about half said "thank you" .. Some really good costumes this year, most looked homemade. Naturegirl, I give out really good candy(lots of Reese's cup, Hershey's, kit kat's) as a bribe to the kids so they wont tp or egg my house. So far so good .. Good luck, Gpurs..

    Re: Get Any Trick or Treaters?

    We had a lot of kids this year. I live in a rural town, so it was not uncommon to see groups of two or three kids walking together.

    As far as egging and TPing...it is part of it. I have never been hit......but I did my fair share of it as a teen. Easy way to get the tp off is to hit it with a water hose for a while. I also noticed quite a few homemade costumes last night as well.

    We think we know the tricksters, and they are very much "40something"! I've been laughing all morning. I enjoyed the innocent ribbing. It'll take a few carmel cappachinos to keep this from happening again, just a handful of candy won't do. Do they make candy-corn cappuchinos?

    Everybody passes out candy here on Main Street. It's not so much a safety concern, but there's so many second home owners who aren't here and lots of condos and apartment bldgs., and lots of folks who just don't want kids trampin thru the yard. Me and the grandson were banned by the police from goin out due to a tp incident the night before, but we snuck out anyway.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Re: Get Any Trick or Treaters?

    I felt a sort of awkwardness when I looked out my window and saw a mom and dad taking there [probably 3 year old kids, two of them] down the street around 5 o'clock with the sun still out. Maybe that's just too young? No kids of my own so I don't know.

    Naturegirl, in your post #1 here, is that an open sewer running through your property.
    I havn't visited rural US , but have spent time in India and Indonesia,
    that's why I wondered.

    Yeah, It's one of the best ages, for the parents. I lie with you not, they show up to trick or treat with children in strollers. Most of the kids really don't get it until 5yrs old. Sure, they get excited about it at 3, but they really don't get why they are putting a costume on. It's mostly about the parents or grandparents if they taking their 3yr old out. Of course this being said, I would rather have a child being taken trick or treating too young as to have them not trick or treat at all. Happy post Halloween.
