@chai2,
I'm just glad you didn't lose your lollies in the perilous segue from the peremptory petition to the pendulous pair.

Sturgis and roger, you 2 are bosses!

The problem is, that means you actually have to open your door to them.

Last year (I remember writing about it) I duct taped a towel over the transom window on the front door, had the porch light off, and on BOTH stairways up to the porch tied multiple ropes across the stairs. Like 3 orange ropes on each of the stairways.

Little jerks still climbed between the ropes, came up to the door, and banged. All this while their adoring parents stood down on the sidewalk.

If my parents saw me doing that as a kid, they would have asked me what kind of moron I was.

Besides, if the street is closed off, how are people who actually live on this street supposed to leave or come home.

Oh yeah, we all need to just make prisoners of ourselves, or deny ourselves access to our homes so rabid 8 year olds, hopped up on sugar, can avoid learning the lesson of not walking in front of cars driving down the street.

I actually love Halloween....our dog Ruby loves it when the kids come to the door.....and the kids love to pet the goofy dog. What I can't handle is the neighborhood effort to have a group going house to house singing Christmas Carrols. On those nights I do turn off all the lights and we hide in the basement .... I find it incredibly awkward standing in front of neighbors (most I don't know) belting out Good King Wenceslaus and tra la la la stuff....I'd rather have a root canal.

@glitterbag,
Jesus Christ.

The only time I have ever experienced people carroling was when an idealistic group of teenagers got together and feebly went to a few houses.

That sounds truly horrible glitter.

@chai2,
Oh that's nothing, I should describe the community hoo haa over building a playground and the moms outraged that people didn't come out to watch the children in wagons and bikes heading to the tennis courts on the 4th of July. And of course, the frigging cookie exchange around Christmas.

@glitterbag,
Just a weeee change of subject, I hve to get it off my head.

IT looks like the old GOP chestnut that "The Democratic Candidate for (add office hear_____________) has absolutely no experience in the real world of business"

I think our present president has unknowingly put an end to the overuse of that campaign phrase because the obvious answer is...''''Well Think about Trump, he was a business man"

@glitterbag,
Halloween has become almost as frightening as Christmas around here. Same baby Jesus, xcept with his head spinning around and some green **** coming out his mouth.

@glitterbag,
Not ignoring you farmer, that was a good post.

But needing people to stand around and watch other people kids make their way to a playground? WTF?

And the cookie committee? Jesus wept.

The closest I can come to that is how at every place of business there is always that one person (or more than 1) that is the self appointed mavin of “let’s decorate/have a contest/have an ice cream social etc” at the slighted provocation.

@chai2,
We treated ourselves and had a company come in to do a DEEP cleaning.

These 2 ladies were here from about 2:15pm to just now, 9:15pm

They cleaned stuff I didn't even know was there.

Not looking forward to seeing the credit card charge though, but it's worth every penny.

For one halloween half-second of horror I thought you didn't know the charge.

I'm sitting down, clean around me and tell me how much it cost.

@ekename,
It cost exactly what it's worth to me.

I have many sister in laws.

One of them, according to her siblings, was apparantly raised in an entirely different household than the rest of them (there were 11)

She is a cross between Blanche Dubois and Norma Desmond.

She's coming to visit tomorrow from Fort Worth, about 3 hours away. Her daughter is bringing her. They are due to arrive around 10:30am

At around 11am, I'm going to have somewhere terribly important to go, for many hours.

https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2019/10/08/braintree-halloween-decorations-home

This Braintree family went all-out for Halloween. Not everyone is pleased.

Covering their Liberty Street yard in faux gravestones, a haunted tree, projected witches, and other spooky decor.
arch also told WBZ the decorations make the neighborhood look “cheesy” and look bad when they deflate during the day.

One of the decorations — a trio of talking pumpkins — involves surround-sound technology.
Beverly Darch, a neighbor of McDonough, said the noise is too much.

“It’s too loud,” she said. “It upsets my husband because our bedroom is right outside of their driveway.”

McDonough said her neighbor’s complaints just made her decide to ramp up the decor.

“Maybe a little bit of spite,” she told WBZ.

Who does that? Ramps it up out of spite? And admit that you did it out of spite!

Why wouldn't you go over to your neighbors and try to work something out - be neighborly?

I guess my gut was right and someone accidently scooped up my stuff.

2 days ago when I went to the pool everything was in the lost and found.

Yay! Car keys!

Re Halloween, I'm not against kids or anyone for that matter having fun.

Do other people think though that the time of being able to wander around streets at night is over?
What about organized community things, or private parties?

@Linkat,
Speaking of loud, it's the 2nd weekend of the Austin City Limits Festival.

The main stage is a mile as the crow flies from my front door.

Right now I'm listening to Guns n' Roses.

I mean, it doesn't bother me. Wouldn't keep me awake if I were trying to sleep.

What's funny though is that at the bottom of the hill my neighborhood is in, the houses there sell for like 1.5 million dollars.

Every time I drive down that road and notice a For Sale sign up, I shake my head.

Oh yeah, it's in one of the "cool" parts of town, until you have weekends like this (which are often) with bands playing literally 250 yards from your front door.

But, I should talk. In San Miguel people put off fireworks, and I mean full size professional 4th of July type fireworks year round.
One of the best spots to do it is on the other side of my garden wall.

They'll randomly send some off any night, anytime between 9pm and 5am

Everyone's just used to it, and sort of snorts and rolls over. I'm getting that way too.

Yeah, you can get used to anything if you do it long enough - even hanging.
