...and two more photos, just to wish you all a Happy Halloween!


Not sure if our cat thinks this is a treat or a trick...

Well, looks like the trick or treating is winding down. We had 40-45 kids. We probably had enough candy with one bag, but since the kids usually take a few it would have been cutting it close. Fun night, glad this neighborhood turned out to be a place that has trick or treaters. I've lived in a few towns where we didn't have many at all, and that' cool too--but I like getting a bunch of kids and seeing all the costumes.

Things have quietened down here, too. My sweet ole furkid really enjoyed the kids and lights and activity.

Seems like a million years ago that I was out Trick or Treating with my son!

NONE here yet.

I bought 2 bags of miniature bars and have all the outside lights on.

However, this town doesn't have many kids as most people are retirees.

I wouldn't mind if senior citizens dropped by tricks or treating.

Back to the issue of the oncoming cold weather. I am curious where people set their thermostats during cold weather. I have mine at 63 degrees Fahrenheit here in Southern California, which means the heat doesn't run at all most of the time, although it's great to have it for the 15 or 20 days a year it does run.

I use a small electric space heater and/or the overhead heat lamp in the bathrooms for showering; if I didn't have those things I would have to keep the thermostat higher.

Winter--------heat set at 72
Summer.......cooling set at 75


63?

One reason I had a job during my working years was to have a comfortable house and 63 would be way too cold for me.

Well, I set mine on 66 usually, but sometimes I turn it off. Like right now - I have the windows open in my bedroom cause it just felt too blame warm in this house.
