Trick or treat
I love this neighborhood. What a haul!
Eschewing my usual Darth Vader helmet in favor of being able to breathe and see, I used the same getup, plus a staff I pulled out of the brushpile out back (honeysuckle, that stuff grows like weeds) and hey presto! a wizard. My daughter was an enchantress, my son was a cowboy, my wife was a queen (first time she ever dressed up, too) -- and we all made out like bandits.
The kids' buckets filled up after an hour or so. I had to dump it into the front of my sweater and carry it around like a kangaroo pouch.
A lot of fun.
