Had the most trick-or-treaters last night than have ever visited the house. About 40 showed up between 7:00 (when I got home from class) and 8:30 (when I had given away all the Lara bars). Had to turn off the outside light so the little monsters and superheroes stopped coming! In recent years, our neighborhood has had about zero kids.

An observation: Most of the kids were very little, leading me to believe that they only just recently got old enough to go trick-or-treating without Mom and Dad.

Some amazing costumes! Perhaps my favorite was a robot made of cardboard, painted green. My favorite line, when a group of pre-teens were standing in the doorway picking their treats: "Wow, I love books! It's like a library in here." I built a story-and-a-half bookcase in my living room, which you can kinda see in this photo:

Hooray: Kids love books!
