Annual Things That go Bump Thumpity Bang Ding Dong Giggle and Gaze Through Windows in the Ni

I'm calling it. It's 9:40 and a school night. ...and wet.

So this year we had 141 tricky treaters. I missed the first hour and a half, so there were likely another 100 to 150, but since this is my yearly official count...

So a rundown of the past years...

1 year ago we had 259.
2 years ago we had 273.
3 years ago we had 220.
4 years ago we had 208.
5 years ago we had 261.
6 years ago we were at Cannon Beach.
7 years ago we had 317.
8 years ago we had 307.
9 years ago we had 274.
10 years ago we had 206 Tricky Treaters.

Annual Things That go Bump Thumpity Bang Ding Dong Giggle and Gaze Through Windows in the Night!


The count this year is 259 Tricky Treaters, so the numbers are holding steady.

Last Year we had 273.
2 years ago we had 220.
3 years ago we had 208.
4 years ago we had 261.
5 years ago we were at Cannon Beach.
6 years ago we had 317.
7 years ago we had 307.
8 years ago we had 274.
9 years ago we had 206 Tricky Treaters.

The costume that made me laugh was the, I'm guessing, 12 Year old with the clear shower cap puffed up on his head.
He was a little embarrassed, like it wasn't his idea.  
"I'm a jelly fish," he said under his breath.
"I'm a pirate!" shouted his little sister.

Unemployment

Just got a notice today that I have one more unemployment check. 

If I have an emergency I can file for an extension.

I don't, so...

I do have a couple irons in the fire though as far as the job hunt is concerned.  We'll see how that goes.
