Last year I was replacing my sewer main, so I had a huge trench & pile of dirt next to the door, with hazard tape & caution signs, and some creepy work lights. Thought the timing was great and people would think I did it just for Halloween, and be impressed with my effort.

Nope. Guess it was too much effort for kids to walk around the trench and we watched every single kid take a look at our house, then keep walking. Seriously? Some parents even nervously shuffled their kids past our house. I don't get it. Oh well, more candy for me.

I used to love Halloween. Now the kids are getting older. My young one isn't even dressing up as far as I know. We live on the edge of town. Not very close to where the "Action" is for candy. I would rather dress up and walk the kids around than sit at home handing out candy. Even my wife switched to dressing up and walking around after so very few people showed up at the door.

I think a scary movie (mini) marathon is in order this year. I bet my daughter has not seen Nightmare on Elm Street (the cool 80's version) yet.

What makes it better is that one of my saws had the muffler gutted and is ported so it makes quite a bit of noise.
I was taking my 2 year old nephew around to a few houses last year. He was scared and still not in the groove of walking up to a strangers house. So we are at about the 3rd house, walking up their sidewalk. This redneck jumps out of the bushes with his chainsaw (chain removed). I immediately think, great... he is going to scare the $#!@ out of Joseph and he won't want to trick or treat for the rest of his life. But the guy proceeds to pull the starter cord a half dozen times and floods the carb. He then THROWS the chainsaw across the yard in disgust. I laughed. He turns and looks at me and yells through his mask "F#$% You". I threw up my arms like dude there is a 2 year old right here. So we go to the next house, Joseph is standing with a big group of kids on the doorstep. An old lady is giving them candy and Joseph says "F#$% You". Great. End of the evening for him. Thanks alot redneck with the POS chainsaw and foul mouth.

Happy halloween you grumpy old men.
