Halloween head-counts 4

Last year, Carolyn Terry got zero trick or treaters.

This year? “I greeted 27 very well-mannered and delightfully costumed trick or treaters, a standard poodle, several moms and dads, and a baby in a stroller out for its first Halloween. Most said 'Thank you,' and one wished me a 'Happy Halloween.'”

Fritz Howard in Lacrosse, Wash., counted 50 kids last night at his place. “All well-costumed and extremely polite. I am convinced there is hope for us yet.”
