Nice, pic LASC--I'm guessin' folks prefer their negotiations with you via conference call rather than in the flesh!

I like BB better too, and thanks for the kind wishes.

Cool minions, Scott--at first I thought it was a shot of an Alaskan polling station. What are they ready for?

Funny--take a bow-wow and paws for applause.

"Going to try going geo cacheing..."

Ok, looks like nobody else's gonna ask so I'll bite--what the heck is geo cacheing?

Good luck to you too, jedigirl, on the NaNoNaNo thing...how about a planet Ork themed story?

...administering 10 cc's of caramel and initiating mounds-to-mouth mastication--get us to Hershey, STAT!

Buckaroo: Having grown up in Tucson (North, off Oracle Road) I know what you mean about South Tucson! My Springer, Toby, and I are driving to Tucson the weekend before Thanksgiving; should be fun and we'll be back seaside before the Thanksgiving rush to the desert starts.

No trick-or-treaters in my area; over here (San Diego) I think a lot have school parties they go to, and I live in a retirement community so the kids don't come to my neighborhood. I rather miss seeing the costumes.

I had to look it up sometime back when another poster referenced it elsewhere:

It's kinda like a giant scavenger hunt. You take GPS coordinates and clues and try and find the cache. There's either stuff in it or a log book depending on the size. You leave stuff and take stuff, etc. There's on down at the Cathedral of Learning at Pitt that the website gives you the first coordinates and then when you find it, it leads to the next etc. I can't remember if my cousin said there are 7 or 9 different caches in that one. We're going to go local and see if the kids like it before I invest in the GPS device.

OMG, my internet has been down since Friday, now I have to go back and read 77 posts!!!

Sorry, I missed all of the Halloween posts this weekend, we were also moving our entire clinic to a new location. OMG we left behind so much stuff that was trash, I think I'm going to have to order a dumpster to throw it all away. Spent all day Saturday getting the phones and internet working and my own at home were out of order. We had two kids trick or treating, darn I love to see the costumes. We had a prowler on the second story roof of our house Friday night at 1:30 am. I didn't hear it, my son did, it took the police 35 minutes to get here and I live in town!! I know we must have looked funny, I was armed with a machete and he was armed with a sword. We never actually saw what it was, but I think that it was a raccoon. My husband is still in Australia and my son went back to college yesterday. I think I'm going to go shopping for a taser this week. But I sleep so sound I'm not really sure I would ever hear a prowler unless they make a lot of noise!!! That machete just fits in my hand so nice, haha. Love your profile pic KK, alias BB. THat is so awesome about your Grandma Kristie Ann. I wish I could convince my mom that she would like a kindle.

Hershey's ER is full from a five-bar pile-up; there were pieces of chocolate everywhere. How about M&M Mars instead?

You guys need to stop. Seriously. You're makin' me want candy. :O

I have a candy mountain in my house. Three straight nights of trick or treat activities will do that. (I'm in charge of eating all coconut or dark chocolate things. I negotiated for half the Reeses).

First Halloween in Biloxi, had 25 kids. One girl about 7 or 8 came up,said trick or treat and held her bag open. I said "for ME". The poor child didn't know what to do or say, you should have seen her face. Needless to say she got twice as much candy as anyone else

Halloween is one of my favorite days. In my town we do trick or treat always on the 31st from 5-8, and until this year it was dark by 5:30, but since the time change now is the first weekend in November, it was light til 6:30. We build a fire in the fire pit in our front yard and give out candy there. We had over 300 trick or treaters this year, which is about average for us. Lots of people will decorate trailers with lights, hay bales, scary stuff, and take 10 plus kids at a time. BF couldn't believe it, even though I had tried to warn him. My street alone is well over a mile long, and our houses are not close together, so if you want to do more than just one street, you need wheels. My family from a neighboring town come here to trick or treat as their town does it Saturday from 2-4, which is ok for the real little kids, but the older ones want the dark.

The best costume I saw was one kid in jeans, hoodie face makeup to look really pale and vampire teeth. He was holding a chain attached to his "minion", who was hunched over, talking with the whole Transylvania accent..."Yes master, what ever you say, master". They went to the next house and the next thing I know, the minion is running (well, limping/running) down the street yelling "I'm free" and the young vampire telling him to "get back here!". It was great!

Neato, Kristy-Ann; we used to do something similar in the army but instead of finding prizes you get to shoot the people there :)

It's more mexican than Nogales, Vicki. In fact, it's more mexican than Mexico.

BB ahh but the food..... I miss it, but then I missed the seafood when I was there

I'm with you on the coconut, dark chocolate and Reeses. I like the mini Reeses cups best; they have coconut m&m's now; and Ghiradelli has an 86% cacao bar.

But I'd trade any or all of that for a mesquite grilled ribeye!
