All the kids were soggy. The parents had umbrellas. I gave about 5 or 6 pieces to each kid but should have used a small shovel to give it away. I'm going be sick and my dentist will be wealthy. Happy

It's a good thing in the country, you don't get much

in fact, after the first two years here, we quit buying candy, and I didn't buy any this year.

I probably should have a few on hand in case, but if any had come they would have ended up with those yogurt covered nut bars. Or bananas, apples, or oranges, but most parents now don't want kids taking anything not "factory wrapped".

I was bad tonight, I actually fried a sweet potato and fixed pasta, not even whole grain, one of those pouch jobs where you just add water to pasta and favoring. I did have that with baked fish, but it was the honey chipotle covered frozen salmon.

So the next few days will be whole grains and salad I guess, maybe baked sweet potato.

I don't know if you picked it up, but a home owner didn't give out candy to all the kids. She instead gave a note to the "fat kids" as a warning that a "village raises a kid" line to help obese kids need no extra candy in their lives.


Oh man, you need to make a statement at this time when a kid wants to be a kid and all that. I see her side of it, but timing is everything and I don't see a kid being happy with a note. -----Willy Happy

Unless a person takes the time to compose several letters claiming various levels of obesity, I think this was more likely phony. Besides, costumes kids wear aren't often that revealing of their girth. Height, yes...circumference, no.

NYC and San Francisco on soft drinks and it becomes imminently believable. She could have given them sealed packs of beef jerky then, but probably some chemical or salt in that she disagrees with too. Anyway, what better way to get back at neighbors than to increase their kid's dental bills, LOL?
