Stolen Candy

Last night I had plans all night that kept me away from the house. I didn’t want to leave the kids in my neighborhood hanging, so I left a basket of candy on the porch. Risky, I know, but it was better than nothing. I stopped home between my Volleyball game and John’s boss’ party and found that people were taking the candy, but there were still several pieces left. While I got ready John refilled the basket (removing the Dots for Mom) and set it back out. When we got home from the party you could tell some people had taken some candy, but there was still a lot left. I was thrilled that no one had taken the entire basket. Then I realized I am going to have to eat all this candy, but oh well.

Mom and Dad didn’t have the same luck. They set the candy out and put up a sign that said self serve. Tillie barked for a little while then stopped. Mom went out later to find the basket completely empty. Whatever kids Tillie was barking at took the entire basket. Luckily it was only half a bag, but still. Mom ended up having to answer the door the remainder of the evening.
