The Friday Five

1. We didn't get a single trick or treater. Usually, we get one kid. Dear, dear, what will we do with all the Halloween candy?

2. While looking through the candy bag for a mini Milky Way with nuts, Himself remarked kids nowadays have no incentive to go trick or treating. Fun-size just wasn't worth the effort.

3. Ink turned 15 on Halloween. When we first got him, he was so tiny he could fit in the palm of my hand. We think he was weaned from his mama too early as he was unable to eat the kitten kibbles. I had to cook scrambled eggs and oatmeal for Ink. Himself was not happy. Now he rules the roost. That is Ink rules the roost, not Himself.

4. Himself recorded the classic monster movies TCM showed on Halloween. Thursday night we watched Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi in The Body Snatchers. I'd never seen the movie before. I don't know how I missed it. Directed by Robert Wise who directed my favorite movie (The Day The Earth Stood Still), in glorious dog view. (The Eldest's term for black and white films). I loved it. Karloff had such a great voice, and Lugosi was equally creepy.

5. Halloween just doesn't last long enough. I think I'll leave my decorations up another week or two to prolong the season.

Do you decorate for Halloween? Do you take your decorations down right away?


  1. I don't decorate for Halloween.

    We got a handful of trick-or-treaters, but we still have 2 bags of candy left.

    You should post a picture of baby Ink. :)

  2. LOL, I'm howling. At first I thought "Ink" was a code name for one of your kids. HAHA!

    Fun size really ISN'T worth the effort...I must agree with Himself.
