We Were All Kids Once;
Halloween on Jackson/Monroe Street

By Robert D. Warner


November 07, 2005

Hey Folks:  Please try to remember that we were all kids once; at least most of us.  What is wrong with letting kids have some fun one night per year for a few hours?  It's fun to see all of the different outfits and smiles at the small expense of a few bags of candy.  I always have a box of dog treats too to greet any four legged friends that join in the fun. We were fortunate this year that the rain and wind held off for a few hours. 
The experience always reminds me of my parents and my childhood adventures on Halloween night.  There are many things that we can complain about, but this is certainly not one of them.  I always look forward to this one night each year when we can open our doors and join in the fun!
