I looked forward to them each fall when I was a kid and could still eat stuff like that.

My grandmother lived about a half-mile from the Affy Tapple factory in East Rogers Park.

And Chicago's lakefront beaches sold them at the concession stands.

God, I ate so many of those. And Milk Duds...and Holloway Suckers.

All of those products were actually made in Chicago...it was the candy capital of the world!

Many zoos have Halloween-themed events every year...we once went to one in Wheeling, West Virginia...

That's so cool. Your grandmothers house must have smelled excellent.

Affy Tapple's are still available in our local markets but as I implied, if I tried to eat one now I would be sacrificing the few teeth I still have left.

hmm

Yes, it smelled great...but that was because she baked so much and cooked so much. The factory was four blocks distant.

I can't eat any kind of apples, taffy or plain, because I have implants. Also corn on the cub. I'm supposed to slice the kernels off.

 Burlington Wisconsin has a Nestlé plant. Get within a mile of that place and you smell chocolate.

Crunchy orange leaves...fun to look at and walk through...but not so much fun for those who have to pick them up...

Early snow

It makes leaf-raking an even bigger pain in the ass...

That image frightened ME, Boss Man! I thought the girl had some "fuzzy boobs" as part of her costume.
Then I realized that she was just holding a stuffed animal, upside-down, and the "boobs" are its feet!
What the hell does that make me? Hopefully, just a doofus, and not a sick puppy or a "sex fiend"...

Only three more months until the first primary...it's on February 3rd, in Iowa.


Scary-goblins-Old-timey-Halloween-Photo.

Kids in homemade, non-commercial Halloween costumes, when political correctness did not yet exist.

And some of them managed to look downright creepy, Wally...
