I’ll be hanging out at pumpkin patch in Kendall County. See, each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one I found outside Oswego. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than the one I found. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see, so I’ll be waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

Handing out candy for the kids and drinks for the adults. Want the address?

Making sure my wife has “door duty” as I will be tied up watching ESPN’s BCS ranking show.

Same as Aldyth. But if I wasn’t doing that, I would go by Rich Millers house and drink all his beer.

Last night, I took my folks to see the record release show for Flat Five’s 7-inch of Edgar Allen Poe’s ‘The Raven’ (Great stuff! Take a listen here: https://theflatfivechicago.bandcamp.com/album/the-raven) It was a costume party — I dressed as a cowboy, my dad didn’t wear a costume, we were indistinguishable.
Tonight, we will give the local urchins gobs of candy to upset their tummies and rot their teeth — like any good neighbor does.

Meeting up with other third grade families to Trick or Treat on the main drag in LeRoy. When the weather is good, it’s rather like the opening scene of ET. Probably also picking up and dropping off seventh graders from neighborhood to neighborhood.
Heading to a Pumpkin Patch outside of Oswego to bring Willy a flashlight.

My neighborhood goes all out and is fairly safe so my boys and I are going trick-or-treating as long as we can stand it. I love doing that. They have fun and I get some non-gym exercise (albeit in the cold).
My buddies and I are being Halloween Dads.
We light good cigars, take a few shots and pull our little one around from house to house asking for beer. We put the bottles and cans we collect around the littlest kid in the wagon, then when the kids are through, light a big bonfire, and drink the treats.

Our streets close for trick or treating and one of our neighbors gets a beer ball or two to haul in a wagon while we take the young’uns trick or treating. Then it’s back to the house for a big bonfire with friends and the World Series while the kids eat candy and destroy the inside of our house. It’s a tradition and all in Chicago, a finer time couldn’t be had.
The Bud Light is like getting a Tootsie Roll, and the real beer is like getting full size candy bars.But we don’t turn anything down. It would be unneighborly and teach the little ones bad manners.
We’ve gotten great booze and some really great smokes. The guys at home seem to get a real kick out of giving us some of their favorite brews.

My costume was college football fan in the stands, with very warm hoodie and stadium blanket and pass out candy…I have German Wirehaired Pointers…who masquerade as the Hounds of Hell when anyone comes to the door…so I sit outside to pass out candy.
