HalloweenPosted: November 2, 2009
To further extoll the virtues of living in a neighborhood where you know your neighbors, let me offer the case of Halloween. The kids spent about an hour going around our block, they got invited in to a couple of houses, they hooked up with a bunch of other kids they know, and they made out like bandits with about two pounds of candy each. In fact, they got so much candy that they volunteered to share their candy with me. Usually I have to wait until they’re in bed and sneak the Reese’s peanut butter cups.
