It was a beautiful evening, a little chilly as the sun went down. In 2 1/2 hours we handed out about 600 pieces of candy. At one point there were about 30 kids lined up. I and the pupster were a little overwhelmed. The Mr. was inside getting more candy.

This year, as in the past, the kids were adorable. Gracie loved being petted by the multitudes.

DTjr faux pas in a tweet, "I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism."

FDA Issues Warning About Black Licorice For Halloween. Apparently it is not good for your heart if eaten in large quantities (2 oz/day for 2 weeks). The risk is higher for those over 40 but may be risky for younger folks. I had no idea. I did look up Twizzlers since I have eaten lots in the past, not in several years. It appears the black Twizzlers have some licorice but maybe not in the strawberry, cherry, etc. flavors.

Wonder what this dude had in mind? Whatever it was it looks like he changed his mind when he saw the camera...

Should have tied all her candy in a box and put it on the roof, where she could look at it but never get it, to teach her about trickle down economics.
