Happy Halloween

I had about 25 kids come to the house for trick-or-treating. They were such cuties. My favourite little costumed kiddie was a little 3 or 4 year old boy who was wearing a body sized yellow tinsel covered egg. He was wearing the top of the egg as a hat. His little face was popping through the egg, like a little chick peeking out of an egg. I'm sure in a few years he will join the legions of spidermen and batmen, never to wear his egg again.

A few years ago, I worked at a bank and one of the customers was a man who had his own construction business. He had three sons, 7, 5 and 2 1/2 years old. He told me that his wife put him in charge of their Halloween costumes. On Halloween, he came into the bank to make a deposit and he had dressed all three of his boys as little girls. He too was dressed in women's clothing. All four of them were "in drag". They looked great. I asked him what his wife thought of the costumes. He said she wasn't very happy. The 7 year old didn't look very amused either.
