    Trick-or-treaters have been so far sent away with nothing more than "come back when it's Hallowe'en!"

    I will be out tonight so someone else can handle them! :)

    How true you are Howard ... last year, we were out for the evening, came back to find the front door covered with silly string and my g/f's car pelted with eggs. Think I got the last piece of eggshell out of the roof seal last week, but the scratches will never come out ... got the little b&*$%^£ on CCTV though, so if they (several 14-16 year-olds) come back this year, there might be trouble ;)

    Better that though than the fate that befell a local chap who's house was pelted with eggs, he gave chase and collapsed and died after a heart attack :( .

    So, no, this is one American import they can bloody well have back :crazy:

    Just sit by front door with a bat, the moment the doorbell rings ( just let it go 'ding' dont even let it finish going 'dong' ) fling the door open and come out swinging .....

    That'll clear them away..

    I agree with you all.

    Now Guy Fawkes is worth celebrating ... almost blew up Parliament ... (best thing for it) ... and it's English!!

    I find answering the door with my very large (now) bouncy chewing Labrador tends to make sure most people don't bother hanging round - especially as he shows his teeth to anyone he doesn't know (he's smiling really but they don't know that)

    Not really interested in it myself but it's an excuse for little'uns to dwess up I spose - though the older kids take it as an excuse to cause havoc unfortunately. Another example of the 'decline in humanity'.

    A bit lucky myself as I live in a secure apartment-rise so no chance of anyone coming to our door.

    Topical picture tho - I like it :).

    Yup I have 3 big dogs plus the wife's ginger rat (miniature poodle). Normally they're behind a gate across the hall, but if you open that so they're right by the front door when you open it a bit then people tend to disappear pretty sharpish (works a treat with Jehovah's Witnesses) :)

    Must remember to put the cover back on the SL tonight though.

    Hmm, got home last night and found someone had dumped a can of "professional" spray paint outside next doors drive.

    I figured today is halloween and it could be a potential weapon tonight so i swiftly removed it and shoved it in the bin!

    My wife called me up and said "shall we get some sweets for the kids?"

    I think tonight i shall park the company Mundano behind the benz and take wifey's car (with her in it) for dinner!

    That way, if they get vicious, its not my car that gets attacked!

    When we were kids we were so well behaved! yaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwn! :crazy:

    good luck and keep those soft tops covered! :)

    I hate Halloween altho my lad's just gone of with his friends - but they will be good! The thought of doing damage etc doesn't cross their minds.

    Having very barky bouncy dogs can be a big help! ;) :D
