_____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.

_____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!

_______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.

____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.)
____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.
