    My brother, Ed, was 19 months younger than me. We would go out together, sometimes with our friends across the street. We all made our own costumes and had plenty of fun doing. Some years my mom, 4’11” tall, would dress up in costume and well and go out with us. We were a scary bunch that always walked, were polite, and took notes on who gave the really good stuff. Money won a gold star rating. We’d go home, change costumes & return to our favorites. We all carried brown paper bags from the local Kroger store. It was a simpler time!

  2. I still remember the Haunted House we visited when I was in 1st grade and I particularly “remember” the feel of the corpse’s “intestines.” I think that is one of those kinesthetic memories that is permanently burned into my memory bank!

    As a kid, Halloween was my favorite holiday. I remember throwing raw corn at windows, chalking windows and getting into general mischief–not with eggs though. My husband was much worse. Him and his friends removed the steps to the house of a grumpy old man who harassed them. Yes he fell down them, but wasn’t hurt. ahh those were the days!!
