SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

I had door duty.


Did I mention that there are a huge number of kids in our neighborhood?


Or that there was a church across the street?  (They hold a huge Halloween party every year.)


We bought ten large bags of candy.


We have 20 pieces left.


As I said, I am POOPED!


The kids had some very clever costumes this year.  I had one kid in a homemade Captain America costume (complete with shield that was originally a garbage can top), more Superman costumes than Batman (very unusual), and a kid who came as a toilet.
