Can We Talk?

Halloween

We didn’t know if anyone would show up for trick or treat but Charlie bought a big box of mixed chocolate bars – all my favourites, I might add.  Well, if nobody comes,  I’ll eat them. They won’t go to waste, in any case.

Porch lights on, fresh candle in the pumpkin, we waited.

And they came.  Yes, we had seven sets of children.  Maybe it doesn’t sound like much but we are in the country so it turned out we had a good turnout.  We were delighted.

And what topped the evening off, the doorbell rang, when I opened it, it turned out to be a group of neighbours.  They all yelled “Happy Halloween!”  What a lovely surprise.  They were watching the hockey game and decided to surprise us.  What a great bunch of people.  With the exception of one person, they are all transplanted city folk.

Ah, the lure of the country.neighbours
