whew, it's all over but the candy wrappers...
Cole was a bit peeved when he smelled the candy being put out... where's mine? At least he didn't freak at the kids. He got some special poodle treats mid-way through the evening.
The last troupe to arrive last night was a pack of kids, the shortest kept grabbing my bowl and pulling it down, the father held out someone's basket for candy, maybe 6 or so beggers clamoring for treats all at once, a slew of adults, all on my little front porch, then an enormous black lab mix pushes her way into my front door. OY!
Cole quickly headed to the door to stop the madness, I was able to usher the lab out, keep Cole in, and peel little fingers off the candy bowl just in time.
The mother didn't say sorry or thank you, just coughed a racking cough and stepped off my porch onto my front garden. One child looked disappointed as he saw what I put in his already overflowing bag.
All at the advanced hour of 8:30 too.
I turned off the light.We were done.
