OK, so we didn't have a jack-o-lantern, and now we have a bag and a half of candy at our house. (Martha: Leftovers for dinner....shall we?) The street was crawling with adults in SUVs and kids running wildly from door to door shrieking

(Snarky Editorial comment: Most in no costume, a few in something they bought at the store, what is up with that, ok I understand parents being too frantic to get a costume together for the kids, but gee whiz, in MY + paper grocery bag + crayons and glue = Halloween costume.)

but only three groups came to our door, and the last group was teen boys (OK, they were at least artfully made up and costumed) who yanked the screen door handle off, so with that, I turned out the lights and went up to read. I guess, without the time honored beacon, even though all the outdoor lights and the living room lights were on, kids felt it was not likely to be worth the effort to come up our drive way.

John made a delicious Shepherd's Pie, with left over pot roast and pork roast, (We are still hoping DeeDee will weigh in with her recipe.) a tossed green salad and fresh delicious apples & kiwis. We finished the Falesco and started on a Lindeman's Bin 50 Shiraz. Il Giardino Brandenburg Concertos on the stereo.

Whatever it was, I slept like a lamb for the first time in ages.
