Seriously, well played Giants.
I’m sending good thoughts, wishes and prayers for everyone in the path of Sandy’s wrath. It’s definitely looking like Sandy will be everything they feared Irene would be last year. I have friends and family in the areas that are promised to get hit. Please, please, please, everyone be careful and safe the next few days! Check in when you can and as often as you can to let us all know you’re okay. I know here, all the way in Toledo, we’re expecting 40 MPH sustained winds tonight, nothing compared to the coast, but I know I’m grounded. I’m just not stable enough on my feet to even get down the three steps to the driveway to go anywhere without getting knocked over!
Okay, let’s get on with the week, shall we?
Welcome to The Monday Quiz About Me, Halloween Edition, brought to us by Acting Balanced and Touristic!
1. Do you consider Halloween a holiday for children or adults?
Adults can and should enjoy it an on occasion dress up and go to parties and such, but the actual night, when the kids are out begging, it’s all about them as far as I’m concerned. I just love treating the kids on Halloween!

2. At what age should children stop trick or treating?
I think kids should stop when they reach the age where they don’t feel comfortable doing it. If a 15-year old has the guts to dress up to go door to door for candy, let them have a piece of candy. Personally, no costume, no candy, but if you come to my door in costume, there will be candy. I also some years have truffles for parents accompanying their kids to the door.
3. What are your plans for Halloween?
Not to be anticlimactic, but as promised for a week, I’ll be in the seat of my walker, sitting at the front door for the 2 hours of official trick or treating. :)
4. What frightens you?
Spiders. I’m afraid of falling too, but spiders are definitely my craziest irrational fear.
And don't forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!
5. Do you carve a jack-o-lantern for Halloween?
I carved my first and only jack-o-lantern in 2008. (It was SO much harder than my Dad ever made it look!)
It was pretty cool to have the pumpkin glowing and all, but for 2009 we switched to using pie pumpkins and David drew the faces on them. They weren’t lit up, but afterwards we had not only pumpkin seeds, like we had in 08, but I also made great pumpkin dishes!
