Crappy weather here in Michigan, which means I won't get many trick or treaters.

But not to worry. I have already eaten half of the bag of Butterfinger candy bars I intended to give out .

@OmSigDAVID,
thanks - I just got back in - I had to run out and buy more candy - so many kids. And I don't have the heart to not have candy for them.

@Linkat,
we never get trick or treters, although we did have a bunch of kids try some COW TIPPING a few yers ago.
One kid got hurt when the cow kicked the **** out of him. Stupid kids live in a ruburb about 5 miles away .They must have read about this "rural sport" in Mark Twain. Trouble is, the kid who was hurt was pushing from the cows rear, the one side of a cow that has a weapon.

Kid went to the hospital and had his busted leg fixed and that was about it. The AMishman did not press charges, instead he sent the kid a few gallons of milk (Who said that Amish have no senses of humor?)

How can she be better armed,

@farmerman,
Ha ha - not glad the fool got hurt, but how dumb - just basic physics would make sense you need to tip from the side.

My daughter came back with so much candy - she counted it twice - 220 pieces of various candy. And not small bite size stuff (although she did have some of that as well) - fun size candy. She knows where to trick or treat. Her quote "what other day do you get to go out and get candy for free"?! Just the right age to truly love it, be able to go alone with a couple of friends and take the most advantage of it - including repeat visits at the houses that give the real good stuff. Such a short span of age when it is still a little magical and also can be smart and efficient to obtain the best bounty as possible and to know which houses to avoid - the ones giving out <gasp> apples.

Somewhere around 7O years ago, in NY,
we did it for Thanksgiving also; I don t remember whether we
wore costumes then or not for Thanksgiving.

Surely, thay were all sufficiently well armed for personal safety.

@farmerman,
Did the milk, per chance, have a kick to it?

Does a sword count? She had a shield and sword as she was a Demi-Goddess (warrier type). Her friend had a bow and arrow - she was a hunter (no not Katness just a regular hunter). - no more Disney princesses in our house.

Now granted don't know how much damage these weapons would have. But I figure treat and treating through a neighborhood that the low-end homes run about $750k with hundreds of other kids, they were pretty safe.

Now she was very disappointed when she couldn't bring the sword to school - no weapons or toy weapons allowed. I could understand in that right after I purchased the sword and shield she was chasing the dog around going after him with the sword screaming "kill the beast!" I could only picture a classroom of kids with swords and shields having sword fights - I guess I could understand the teachers wanting to prevent that craziness.
