Trick or Drunk

The gauntlet has been thrown down. Smashed, actually.

If anyone had ideas of winning the affection of the neighborhood kids with high end candy, they might as well have left the candy at the store. Because their efforts went for naught tonight.

You see, I decided to take Trick or Treat to a different audience. The daddies and the mommies. And that is who REALLY gets a vote around here.

You see, our candy selection was about average. Maybe even below par for this 'hood. We bought the Costco bag, 5 pounds of mixed candy for $10 or some such thing, nothing we really spent much thought on.

But I did win, for sure! Because we had frozen margaritas. Made to order, right on the tailgate/bar of the 40 year old Chevy.

OK, made to order might be a stretch. As long as mom and dad wanted what I was making, they got one. For all I know, they weren't even that great. But no one was complaining.

Still, I betcha you didn't get none of that for Trick or Treat!

Should of stopped by.

Sounds like the beginning of a wonderful holiday tradition!

Sounds like somebody had fun on Halloween. I used to buy the kind of candy I liked(in case there were leftovers) and make the little treat bags. In recent years, I've given snacks of the chip variety and juice boxes or bags. At home in Memphis, we had very few visitors and last year none at all. Here in Alabama, for our first Halloween, we had 11. I was happy to meet some of my neighbors for the first time. If I'd had your idea, I might have met more.

Rick, plans are already in the works for ToD 2. And Fidget, my margaritas are WAAAAAAAAAY better than Jesus snow cones.

This Baptist buys the good booze!

SWEET! Great idea! I bet, even here at the end of the cul de sac, I could coax some to come down to our house!

That is our exact problem. We live on the far end of the cul de sac from all of the other neighborhood kids.

So none of the other kids ever want to come all the way over here.
