Didn't Have Enough!

____Trick and treat night tonight 5:30 - 7:30.  We had 6 bags of candy bars and ran out in 1/2 hour.  Our neighbor shared and thought she had more than enough and we ran out at 140 treats.  They lasted another 1/2 hour.  (Had to take a picture of this gal.  She and a young man both in costume were out collecting candy, no kids noted with them.  Must not have wanted to wait until next year!)  Lots of adults and lots of little ones not dressed warm enough.  It was getting too dark before 7 anyway.

Trick and Treat Around the Square

_____Last evening 5-6 we went uptown to watch trick and treaters. What a crowd. One store had 600 treats and ran out. That is a close a count as available. We were in front of Ben Franklin and people were coming from both directions. This is toward the end and it was thinning out some. (I have more pictures on facebook.) Some people we knew, but many we had never seen before. The Rec Center and Library both had treats also. Lots of adults dressed up too. Deb G. had 3 sacks of 350 treats. She said she gave 2 pieces and wouldn't give to those taller than she was.... though she admits to being vertically challenged, she's not THAT short. Her treat bag was running out too.

7th Football @ Perry

_____Perry won 18-6. That makes a 0-6 record for this year. Last season they had some wins against bigger town in the AAU program. But they also had less kids and boys that had played since 3rd grade. This year they had many that hadn't played football before along with the boys that had played. Now it will soon be time for basketball!

Freedom Park Memorial Ceremony

__This afternoon they had a ceremony to dedicate the Park, newly completed, in Churdan. It is to honor the Service men from the area that lost their lives in WWI and WWII. Jerry's uncle topped the list.

7th football @ Prairie Valley

_______Another loss. This time 36 - 0. Calvin played all game except for the kickoff receiving team, and with the score, there were more than usual! Pictured is of Calvin on his way to assist with a tackle. (The white shoes and black socks) One more game next Monday.

BVU @ Central

____Saturday Abbey cheered for BV at Central in Pella. We went down and joined other family members to take part. BV had a great first half to lose in the second half. We all went out to eat after the game before heading our separate ways. (Calvin had his radio ear bud listing to the Iowa game and couldn't concentrate on both games at the same time, so had his head buried part of the time. Jeff had the other ear bud in his ear listening and reporting to the guy behind us when the score changed.) Iowa lost too. Dave was busy farming and missed the fun. (Abbey is in the back in the tower formation. That is her usual spot, so no decent photos showing her then.)

Thursday Football

____Calvin played in Jefferson against Roland-Story. Jefferson lost 0-22. He was center again the whole game and linebacker. In the 5th quarter he was in the backfield, where he is much more satisfied. Two more games left. Both out of town.
