Usually we stay home on Halloween and hand out candy (it was down last year to only about 80 kids), but we spent this year with some of the grandkids. Gary, being the activities director at a retirement home, had planned a "Safe House" Halloween night there. Since he had to work, we helped watch out for the kids. Some of the residents were operating games and having fun handing out candy. Of course, there was also loads of Halloween refreshments! Afterwards, we stopped by Grandma Belle's and then out for pizza. I think everyone else in South Salem was at the same pizza joint, but we eventually got their tummies full of something besides candy!
