Snow. Again.

Looks to be about a foot. The 6 inches I shoveled last night was too wet for the snowblower, but I'll give that a shot today. (Once I get out of my PJs.)

Sit-stay training

They really want to get those squirrels!

Roasted pumpkin seeds

Usually I roast my seeds with olive oil and a dash of Worcestershire sauce, but I was out of the latter, so I experimented with ghee and bacon salt. Tasty!

Where have all the children gone?

This is not a random sampling of trick-or-treaters.
These six are the only trick-or-treaters I saw last night.

We used to range far and wide, with groups of kids pointing each other to the best candy. "That house there has full-sized candy bars!" "The blue house on the next street has popcorn balls!" If there were parents out, they were only with the littlest kids.

When we were older, we'd trick-or-treat for Unicef, with those clever little folding boxes for collecting pennies, because begging for candy was for babies. But you know we were really in it for the candy, too.

Maybe it's still like that in other neighborhoods, other towns. Did you get many visitors?
