Halloween Hiatus: Hell in a hand basket
Well folks, in the months I’ve been gone WordPress has apparently rolled out about fifteen new upgrades, updates, bells and whistles. As such I’m not entirely sure whether I’m posting something or signing up for the Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes; however, in the event anyone is still following me, I figured I’d note the passing of Halloween, my least favorite holiday, by linking to one of my most favorite posts, an oldie but a goodie, Hell in a Handbasket: Halloween my way, and praying for enough rain to keep all the little monsters at home.
Stay thirsty, my friends.

On my FB feed I saw someone carve up a pumpkin with the words FUCK OFF. Somehow, it made me think of you….
PS: My hubby, who has a license to write prescriptions, is threatening to give out Percocets and Valium to the lil buggers.
Don’t waste perfectly good prescription meds on children. A little Benadryl-laced chewing gum puts them out in a flash. Save the good stuff for friends in need. Like me.
I’m sorry to hear you aren’t into Halloween! I hope you have a peaceful night without too many ringing doorbells.
Tonight I gave the little buggers the choice of sweets (candy, as you call it over your side of the pond, I believe) or fruit, just to see if any chose the fruit. They all chose the sweeties except for one toddler, who turned up too late and was left with a choice between a plum and a tangerine. She took the plum with some reluctance and showed signs of being about to cry. Tough tittie, missie, I thought – one day you will thank me for making you eat vitamins while your little chums begin their journeys to obesity.
PS Glad to see you are still blogging now and then – I’ve completely lost my blogging mojo and these days confine myself to issuing random opinions via Facebook, on the basis that more people are likely to read them.
