We had four trick or treaters ring the bell last night. Five if you count the granddaughter, who looked marvelously cute in her Belle from Beauty and the Beast costume. Next year I'm going to grab a half dozen full sized Snickers and be done with it. I doubt we have had two dozen kids total on Halloween in the past three years. At the old house we would go through at least three of the giant bags of candy every year. I guess our street here in suburbia is just isolated enough that the kids don't bother.

It looks to be a warm day here. Perfect for taking leaves. The only problem is my trees are remaining steadfastly stubborn and are not even turning color yet. They are a greenish-yellow at best. Heck, I'm still getting tomatoes from my little garden. It is November and barring an unexpected frost I will have eight or ten ripen by the end of the week. I'm not complaining, more seasonable weather is due by the weekend.

Have a happy Tuesday.

One game left. Joe Maddon needs to feed those Cubbies whatever he fed them yesterday before the game. If they play tonight like they did last

And yet I can't get my hopes up too high, because I don't know which team will come out to play -- the regular season 103-game winners, or the lovable stumblebums of Wrigleyville.

God help us all. But either way, it's been a wild ride.
