This year I don't think we had any callers.
Nearly 20 years ago I moved to a quiet neighborhood on a dead end street. The local middle school is at the bottom of the hill from my house and the elementary school up the hill from there. I watched the populations of both schools grow through the years with an overcrowding of portable classrooms added to each and the building of a second elementary school in the community with it's own yard now overcrowded with portable classrooms.
Nearly 20 years ago the children's population in my community was much smaller and yet I would have needed a large bucket of candy to survive the trick or treaters on Halloween night. Now their population has exploded and I could have made it safely through the evening with a few candy bars bought in the checkout aisle of the supermarket I miss Halloween.
