Thanks, chopper! I understand the thread now. I don't think I could have kept from laughing either, but I also couldn't have done the push ups!

Blow up a lot of purple balloons, attach them to your clothes and go as a bunch of grapes. Cheap and easy!

JROTC? SAI? PT? Could I please have a translation so I can get the joke too?

The most memorable moment when I wished I had a camera was: Years ago, when stopped at a red light, a white limousine pulling a U-Haul trailer passed in front of us on the green light. I did a double-take and cracked up; also thought about the great advertising opportunity for U-Haul "(Everyone uses a U-Haul")!

My kids are grown up now, but two Hallowe'en traditions stand out.

They always wore home-made costumes. Parts were purchased at thrift stores and the rest we made ourselves. It was always so much fun, scrounging what was needed. They got very creative. Over the years, their costumes included the usual princess, fairy, gypsy, a cowgirl, a mosquito (we got the idea months ahead of time when one daughter was given a kazoo, and I told her she sounded like a mosquito when she hummed into it!), a tree, a birthday present, Medusa, Fire (D could have been Katniss's stylist in The Hunger Games - has anybody read it?) They still make their costumes for the Hallowe'en parties they go to as adults!

The other tradition was started by me in an effort to save their teeth because I was galled by the quantity of candy they collected! They got to keep all the chips and nuts, and they chose 12 keepers from the candy. The rest, they bundled into a bag and left in a special spot (in our house, usually by the piano). During the night, the tooth fairy would take away the bag of candy and leave a small gift (book, game, puzzle, etc.) in its place. Don't think I'm a mean mum for taking away their candy: every year, they ASKED if the Tooth Fairy would be coming. They liked the gift better than the candy - they had more than enough stuff with what they kept!

Oh, one more tradition: when I went out for Hallowe'en as a kid, a lot of people gave apples (not so much any more). But there was always the danger that some sicko would sabotage the apple with a pin or even a razor blade (ya really gotta wonder...). So my mother took all my sister's and my apples and cut them up to make a special Hallowe'en Apple Crisp.

Oh, that was a nice trip down memory lane - thanks for the opportunity, Biba!
