It's because I am ready this year...

I have FULL SIZE candy bars (I only get a few trick or treaters, so I want to reward them for their effort). My house is clean, porch lights on, and...

There's a tornado watch.

1. I hope you are rewarded

I never know how many will show up.
One year only about 30 other years well over 100.

I was concerned that smoke from the wildfires might mean that parents keep their children at home. but the air quality is not too bad.

2. NO tornado watch here in Calvert county,

and no candy bars either as my house is WAY away from ANY beaten path, so I'm home alone on the river!!!

13. It really is!

However, DirecTV just went out, and back in; storm issue, I guess. Rain and wind.

3. Oh, no! So sorry. We used to live in a wonderful Halloween

neighborhood in L.A., small lots carved out of a mountainside and full of children to begin with so that others brought their children, small ones especially, up to our neighborhood also.

We're alone in the country now, and I really miss that special evening of showing children our houses were full of nice people glad to see them. And the teens who came later, so cool and casual, that we were glad they didn't want to give it up yet (just the candy of course ) and were just as welcome.

4. Freezing cold and windy here...

and “Halloween Central” is a couple of blocks over. So I’m enjoying a beer on the porch and looking forward to Reese’s, Hershey’s, and Kit Kat the next few days.

The Twizzlers I may just leave somewhere.
