Trick or Treat

The shore version:

PumpkinSand“Back in the day” we would climb into our father’s station wagon and set off for the night to fill our pillow cases.

There were the popular stops: the local candy shop owner’s home, and what we considered the mansions of Avalon’s prominent citizens.  Full size candy bars guaranteed!!

As a local business man, our father understood the necessity of networking. Trick or Treat was occasionally sidetracked with a discussion about a job or estimate.  His daughters would whine to move him along!

Even when we were satisfied with our haul, the night was not over until we visited all of the year round relatives, friends, and business associates (in other words…most of the houses with lights).

Back home, the 4 girls would sort their candy and trade for favorites.  One was even known to inventory, categorize, and store away her stash through most of the winter (ahem…that was me).

Happy Halloween  :)

    You were the only one that still had Halloween candy left at Easter. That is only if your devious sisters didn’t find your stash and eat it. You know that was Tricia right?!
