    Halloween is coming. Do you hand out treats to all the little ghosts and goblins that come to your door screaming the familar phrase, "Trick or Treat"? If so, what do you normally hand out to things that go bump in the night?

    We don't get very many visitors on Halloween because we live so far out in the country and you can't even see our house from the road. We do have a stash of goodies, usually full-sized Snickers candy bars so if they are brave enough to come down our long lane, they get some great goodies. How about you? How do you please the gang of characters that ring your door bell?

    My wife says I am "anti-social" because if we go to a party I am ususally ready to go home after an hour or so. After a couple of drinks and some chit-chat, what else is there to say or do?

    Never did Halloween as a kid, don't hand out candy or make a big deal of it any which way. We have a big family wiener roast, hayrack ride and such at my parents' farm every year. Typical stuff, shoot guns, flaming marshmallows ... normal. :cool:

    Ok, we're on our 3rd bag, make that 5th bag of candies. Yeah, bad. :evil: 3 chocolates: almond joys, M&Ms, Snickers, Mars, Milky Ways, Kit Kats. Also got the non-chocolates: sour everything! plus licorice.
