November 1, 2010

Well, I wish someone had told me!!

We did not have no tricks-or-treaters come by the house
on Saturday night and you know why?


Halloweens was on Sunday night this year.
Well no one even told me.
So that was why I didn't get any candy.

Unfortunately, we had a LOT of
tricks-or-treaters come by last night
(including a few that I think were like 35 years old!)
and they et all the candies!

And you know what,
not one puppy came to our house.
I told the tall guy that if I had gone
out for tricks-or-treats,
I could have cleaned up and I would
have shared all my loot with him!

So here is what he gave me at the end of the night:

That's right.
Circus Peanuts.

Which, by the way, are neither circus-y or peanut-y.
As a matter of fact, the only '-y' they are is
But it's ok.
I made sure that I gave some back to him.
In his shoes.
After they had been chewed on a bit.

  12. We didn't have very many trick or treaters last night at all. We don't know where they all went. We have lots of candy leftover, but it is mostly chocolate. We have heard from good sources that those circus peanuts are really bad.

    Hope the TG can find some other treat for you.

  13. We only had a few trick or treaters because everyone was home watching the Giants game. I remember those circus peanuts. To me, they are in cohoots with candy corn.

  14. Woof! Woof! Many celebrated 2 days of Halloween ... Imagine that. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  15. Oooohhhh Jack...!! you give us such great ideas..!! We got dehydrated apples wrapped in turkey bacon....yummmmmmy!!

    Enjoy...Max & Misskitty

  16. Why, Jack, you must always be gracious of all that is given to you because the tall guy might think that you don't like his humble offerings and stop givin' you treats! Pretend to eat them an' hide them - in a potted plant - not his shoes, he finds them there!

    Our momma likes those phony peanuts and so do her grown sons. Go figure. Us - how 'bout a little prime rib or maybe some Lake Superior White Fish, YUM?☺

  17. Jack,

    We gots NO tricks or treaters at all PLUS mom bought only chocolate so I can't have any of da left over candy, her can be so mean sometimes.

  20. We only had 5 little people come to the door. Those candies look good....why did you put them in the Tall Guys shoes?

  21. hahahaha. Eww circus peanuts scare me. They are like foam.

  22. No puppies at our door neither Jack but Mum did get me a lovely softy pumpkin to rag. Those peanuts looks nasty!

  23. Oh Jack, mom and I have missed you! So sorry about the Circus Peanuts. BOO! And we LOVED your Halloween poem! Mom was ooooing and ahhhing over that "candy when you were a kid" link. So fun!


  24. I don't remmebers signing dat contract eithers...actually, I signed da one dat states I is here to haves FUUUUUUUN...hehehe!


  25. So we had one set of trick or treaters.... and I greeted them with a bark and tried to steal their yeild however Ma was too nice and gave them some fruit bursts (green and orange I might add... the ones she doesnt like) and we didnt see hide nor hare of anyone else, no pups either.

    Happy Tuesday!

  26. So good of you to be environmentally conscious - what with recycling and all.

  27. The same happened here, Jack!
    No treats for me!
    Kisses and hugs

  28. Ewwww... I bet they were all squishy when he put his shoes on. We had about the same amount of kids - although we weren't sure any of them were kids...
