LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND: No tricks, just plenty of treats this Halloween


Niagara Gazette — We had to knock on the window to get one group’s attention, they were marching right on by. It’s as if we were begging to be robbed. Good thing we did, ‘cause we’ve got 6 candy bars left.

Then there was the ape. Thank goodness for gorillas. We slipped him a couple. We’re glad we did, otherwise we’d have a whole lot more than 4 candy bars left.

A little after dark the neighbor girls came home. Doug hollered out the door and over they came, a-twitter with giggles, one in a delicious red wig. Gee they’re cute, and polite, too. Wish there’d been more of them, or we wouldn’t have 2 candy bars left.

Ah, well. The lights are off, the witchy banner re-furled, the statues back in the basement, all is quiet, too quiet. It was a disappointing Hallowe’en. Come visit, and bring some candy, if you can, we seem to be out ...
