CapSchool

NaNo NoNo... maybe next year.

So, I live in a little town.
A very wee small town filled with old people.
And tonight is Halloween.

As I drove through town on my way to get cat food, squashes and scary movies (The Jacket is good), I noticed that about half the houses are decorated, front doors open, candy bowls on display, porch light on, you get the picture.

There are NO CHILDREN in my town. Seriously, 300 people, 98% retired, no kids.

I weep for the dozens of little old ladies sitting alone, surrounded by cheap candies, wondering where the tykes are.

I wish I had a mask.
