Happy Pumpkin Day

  1. Well, Halloween was a huge disappointment this year. It would appear that the pied piper has led all of the children out of our neighbourhood, or so I thought. When I stepped outside to see what was going on, I understood why our doorbell was not ringing. We were the only house on our street with the light on. The poor kids figured it was too much work for only one house. Oh well. Now what am I going to do with all that bargain chocolate? What to do, what to do!

  2. I was thinking everyone in our neighbourhood had gone over to yours!! I am in the same boat. We had a dismally small group of kids this year, and after that half-price frenzy at Loblaws yesterday, I am now overwhelmed with chocolate! I did my share of digging-in, but I will have to be doling it out all over the neighbourhood to rid myself of any further temptation. I wonder if we took it to the gym and left it at the front desk??? Not very athletic of us, but muscles do need sugar.

  3. Well, Dr. Simone's group will be only too happy to accept any leftover halloween candy if you are all looking for a place to dispose of it. Dr. Simone is the man who goes over to Africa and such places and does the immunization for children and feeds them. In order for them to come back the next time they need medical attention he gives them little treats, our highschool is always collecting little bits for this purpose. I'm sure if you go to the Catholic High School that is by South Common Mall they will be glad to take it to his warehouse, although I will be doing that as well so I would be glad to take it over for you. It's healthier for the body and soul to give it away.

  4. Wow and I thought our house and neighbourhood was the only one with a poor turn out of kids. How disappointing. Luckily I don't eat chocolate as there is lots leftover.
