Thursday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
     Oh, what a fantastic night! Here in my small neighborhood where everyone knows one another... Halloween is more like a neighborhood "open house". We all stop by each others homes for coffee, treats and chats about the up coming Christmas holiday decorations. It is always so nice to catch up with each other when we aren't exhausted at the end of a busy work week.
     As far as Trick or Treaters, we have well over a hundred. 7 "mega mix" bags of candy and countless adorable children. I don't know why but the toddler costumes always warm my heart. Best in show was a little "pumpkin" and one of our neighbors daughters dress up as a "cow girl". Literally. She was in a full cow (as in MOOoO!) costume while riding a horse!
How many Trick or Treaters did you get last night and what was a more memorable costume / high light of the evening?

And sorry I could not travel both

We had 2 kids ring our doorbell. We're in a condo complex with very few kids, so we almost never have more than 10 show up. These kids were probably 8 and 9, and dressed up like pirates.

Hubby and I watched a movie and ate candy. I love Halloween! LOL

hope you're doing well Dani dear!!

We used to get somewere around 200~300 kids every year in our old neiborhood which translated into about $50. of candy w/o running out!! Kids would come from all over to T or T there. Now I live out in the country and got narry a one! Guess the kids go to parties or town here. Guess I'll have to eat the candy I bought!! Just kidding, I didn't buy any!
When I was young & stupid I broke almost every bone in my body and I'm paying a heavy price now but I'm still here and so glad to see my two sons grow up to be fine young men, both are in the Navy. I'm so proud! My biggest health problem>> I'm a certified Luny~Tune!!

we live in the country and don't get any trick or treaters. The community church puts on a fall festival and I could hear the live band when I went out to check on the animals before bed. Sounds like they were having a lot of fun, but I miss seeing the little ones in costume. And like Pete, I don't even bother buying the candy anymore because I would eat it!

We gave up years ago on having our light on for trick or treat. Not many small kids in the neighborhood and we would get maybe 4 or 5 each year which did not make it worth it.

The local mall does a trick or treat thing every year and I took Chris to that Sat afternoon. While there the family in the line behind us had a baby about 6-7 months old that was dressed as Tigger, very adorable, but what made it so memorable was that this baby kept reaching out and tapping me on my back or shoulder and when I would turn around he would giggle and bounce up and down in his Mom's arms like a Tigger.
