    1 Kid.


    1 kid who walked off with the motherload........I don't even know who she was. Her parents pulled in the driveway and she walked up like she owned the place.

    Normally the kids across the road come over, but I guess they are getting too old.

    None, not in 7 years here, if someone did show up they each end up with a can of fruit or a coupon for 3 dollars off a pizza

    It was my turn to man the door this year while wife walked kids. I was putting candy in a kids bag and saw a can. I said hey whats that can in your bag. Kids laughs and shows me a can of spartan brand beets. His side-kick had beans. when my kids got home I asked about the can goods. My boy said he didnt get any but he talked to someone that got prune juice. Not sure if somebody was just cleaning out the pantry or was pulling an all time funny.[:)]

    None...Nada...Zip...Zilch.

    Sweet Mother of the Tooth Fairy I have a load of candy here. I thought for sure the kids in the apartment complexes would be out and about so I stocked up.

    Guess it goes into the office tomorrow and I put the programmers on a sugar rush from hell. [:D]

    7 came by here.
    I think I scared 3 of them really good - one ran away screaming with a crying undertone.

    Never got the chance to hand out sweets.

    1 so far this year. The kids in the neighborhood are all getting too old. This one was the grandson of a neighbor who was always really nice to my son. They used to make up a special bag just for him.

    Their grandkid is going to need dentures after he finishes all the candy I gave him. [;)][:D]

    Gave out about 4 big bags of assorted candy. Nearly all little ones, with a few in their early teens. We turn on all the outside lights, so they'll know they are welcome to come trick-or-treat. Turn them off when the candy is gone, which was about 9 this evening. I enjoy seeing the little ones in their costumes.

    35 this year. Almost ran out of candy. Luckily my wife stopped at the store on the way home from work and asked how much candy we had left. One KitKat was all. She brought home another bag.

    Between five and seven we had over 200 kids . Lost track after that.

    I was standing out in the yard and a kid that looked around 13 came walking out of my back yard. He walked over to my neighbor's truck and tried the door handle. He then started looking in the back I stepped out from the dark to where he could see me and said "HEY. That' not your truck.!!!! Start walking or you are not going to like what happens next"

    He looked like he was going to cry as he quickly started moving away. Little turd

    Had the first kids show up at 4:50pm! Wasn't even dark. It's 8:15 now and still getting kids..and some adults[xx(] LOTS of these kids don't even have costumes. That's something I've never seen..not even an old sheet with eye holes cut out..economy is rough. My wife took our two munchkins around the block..and when they go to bed I'll raid their goody bags[}:)][:D]

    Started with 2 large bowls of candy. One big group of about 15 little tikes pretty much wiped out one bowl. I give each kid a handful of candy, not just 1 or 2 pieces. Pretty good turnout.

    Followed wife to door 1 time.
    A couple pushing a stroller with a baby were on the steps.
    Raining and stroller was open but had a top with rain blowing in. Baby was too small to eat candy. Wife gave the man a small candy bar.
    I decided I should not go back out , I might say something I should not.
