Happy Day after Halloween

The kids had a fun time trick-or-treating last night at church.  This is at least the third year that we have gone there for trick-or-treating.  They both came home with big bags of candy, which we’ll distribute over the next few weeks.

N. wanted to go as Dash, his character from ToonTown.  Dash is a dog, so we made him dog ears, and had to figure out how to attach them to his head.  If we had found the elastic sooner, we could have sewn it to the ears, but as it was, we tried bobby pins, which kept coming off.

C. Went in as Rufus, from Kim Possible.  She designed her own mask, and seemed to like it, though once again we had trouble keeping it on her.

We went early enough this year to be home not long after seven, so we actually got a couple of trick-or-treaters this year.  We didn’t get any the last couple of years.

I’ll try to post pictures soon.

Its happened again. More Strange Mail.

This one’s not quite so strange, but still inexplicable.  (Until, of course, we get an explanation.)  This time we got a Priority Mail from someone we don’t know in Florida, with a regular envelope inside it.  Inside the regular envelope was a folded sheet of paper with eight $500.00 American Express Travelers Checks in it.  Once again, no explanation of what we were supposed to do with it.  No sign of any foreign country anywhere in the package.  Although the inner envelope did have USA at the end of our address, which usually implies that it was mailed from overseas.

Somehow, we must have gotten on the “Stupid Americans who have agreed to launder money for us,” rather than the “Stupid Americans who might agree to launder money for us,” list.

If it happens again, I’m going to begin to be seriously annoyed.
