A fun time was had by all (well, maybe not the dog). Candy was plentiful and the weather was warm. The Force was with us.
Was it worth buying all sorts of random stuff from eBay, Jo-Ann Fabrics, the Army Navy Store, Home Depot and Chick's Sporting Goods (a real police duty belt, an airline seatbelt belt, a kid's karate outfit, athletic tape, nylon webbing, spray paint etc.), discovering I can't sew worth a damn, and taking 2 hours off of work (which I just had to make up now from home after trick or treating) for just a few hours of dress up fun? HELL YEAH!!
