Knoxville Thanksgiving '11
The candy grab, and more. It took him a while to get going. Mom had to show him the ropes with the carting around of the giant pumpkin face bucket and knocking on the doors. trick or treat - wasn't necessary, as the home owners were all mesmerized and focused on something else. B had this tendency to just walk into peoples houses. If they opened the door to give him candy, then they opened the door to their worlds....almost like the cops - if you open the door then they are coming in (that advice was free all you college kids)....anyway our neighbor deter had been spying this action, unwilling to let the likes of a monkey in his house he was prepared. A little back story on this is helpful, you see there is a nurse in the house and we all know that nurses realize the dangers and potential harm and disease that come with monkeys - thus no monkeys or small swinging primates allowed. So If you notice the action done by Deter, a seasoned vet at keeping out monkeys and the like ....step 1 door open but only to the point necessary for your body to squeeze through no more, step 2 slowly push through maintaining the door crack hindering the more agile and smaller sneaks access, step 3 closing the door behind you while using the body as a shield.....well played....Deter was wise enough to bring his re-enforcements to the door as B began his knock and duck in the house routine, garnering the likes of a ferocious guard dog named bailey access was denied, but and this is a big but B scored with the favorite Candy of the Night - M&Ms - the original - good times, first walking trick or treat. enjoy.
