Halloween Road Trip

It's Halloween season and here I am on a Road Trip?

You've got to be kidding. I can't be out here when the spirits walk the earth and need stuff, like, bodies to inhabit or candy to eat. Terrifying.

But, because I'm an AtoZer to the core, I'm out and about. *Play spooky music here.* Mario's looking for a smaller hat. If you have one, could you please send it over?

So let's make this an "informative" drive tonight.

I'm thinking I'm more in the Witch-Superman-Princess group. The problem with the witch is getting into the car with that pointy hat. Here's to your Halloween on the Road.  


  1. I have a hard time believing Skittles rank after candy corn...

  2. I'd rank Twix as the number one candy. At least right now. Been craving Twix. LOL

  3. Witch might be easy to pull off for us old broads. LOL,

  4. Twix would be my # 1 and Butterfingers would be # 2.

  5. Too funny, pics, costumes, candy and all. Of course, Reese's is up there. Who doesn't like sugary peanut butter? Besides that witch costume can be used all year round, pointy hat and all. Take it to your next meeting.

  6. Love to many different candies to actually pick just one.

    Great post!
