Talking about childhood Halloweens this week, and what kind of "haul" we made, Larry said his mom used to appropriate the loot bags when they got home to "check" the treats for wholesomeness. He figured she took her percentage--in fact, probably the best stuff (chocolate). He figures she had a stash somewhere in the house afterwards, but he never thought to "follow the sugar"...lol
I think I remember a year in St Cloud where we each filled a large brown grocery bag with loot--is that possible? We weren't allowed to go very far, and those rubber masks were awful to wear/breathe in. But, we probably had little blond, blue eyed sis along the last year we lived in St Cloud. That would have done it. She wouldn't have worn a mask...
Larry was Mighty Mouse there in Hawaii, but we never actually dressed up in Minnesota--it was cold enough to wear coats, so it was just masks--a pig, a duck, and...a cat? I can still remember the smell of the inside of that mask, and how wet it got from breathing in it.
Just for fun, heres a site Larry found of kids in costumes in years past. LOL...some look pretty familiar!
Have a good time tonight, ok?
