Got 28 trick-or-treaters, about the usual. The cutest was the shy, very little boy in the Tigger outfit whose mom and dad were prompting him to say "Trick or treat," with very little success.

I spent the time between treat handing out watching Buffy eps— "Halloween," "Fear Itself," "The Initiative," and "Pangs." It been years since I actually watched any of them. Good stuff.
