Three Ways To Acquire The Perfect Dressing (2008)

1. Buy it from an eatery.

2. Make it from the package.

3. Pay attention to that elderly relative that is making it.
==============================================
Watching it made from scratch-
Is the perfect lifetime catch.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [G] Halloween Night

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

.

They went to see Mrs. Smith, who made the

popcorn ball-

She made plenty, she made enough for all.

.

Then off to Mr. Chester’s, who gave candy

corn-

And in addition, he blew real loud his

homemade boat horn.

.

Mrs. Garcia always had chocolate to boot-

When we left her house, we had scored our loot.

.

Mrs. Johnson had a variety of candy-

To trick or treat, at her house was real handy.

.

The Halloween bags were getting full and a bit heavy-

Thank goodness, Mama was following along in that

old time Chevy.

.

To unload a bit, in the car-

Then once again, to travel far.

.

From this block, to that block, the kids went

door to door-

It was Halloween night, and every house turned

into a candy store.

.

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

Back In The Day On Halloween Night (2014)

I remember the days when we’d go trick or treating. It was a time to dress up and go house to house, to get some candy, to fill up our bags.

We usually just put on stuff from around the house, and added a bit of Mama’s makeup. Or if we were lucky enough, someone in the family

would make us a costume.

.

I don’t remember ever speaking of the devil, per say. It was just a fun filled night. As soon as it got dark, we’d head off for our adventure.

A lot of the neighborhood would participate, and some houses would give us loads of candy, while others would give us a fright.

I can remember a gorilla coming from behind the bushes. Mr. Smith, down the street, had to have some fun too.

The most amazing thing back then was the popcorn balls that we ate. Quite a few people would make those, so we weren’t exactly sure

which house they’d come from.

.

Later on we evolved to the parents inspecting the candy, and then we could go to the local hospital, to have the candy x-rayed.

As an adult, I never could understand how that worked, but back in the day, that is just how it was. At the same time, we were always

told not to take candy, from a stranger, but on Halloween night, that thought went out the window.

Scary isn’t it? No costume required.

 

“Halloween was filled with fun and fright-

Evolving into the fall festival, at a particular site”.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 878 (That Childhood Trip)

I took a ride by car and by railroad-

And, in the meantime, passed many a road.

.

Beginning with the purple tones of

Mediterranean and Baltic Avenue-

By more than chance, $200 I happened to acrue.

.

Of course, the income tax got me, and I had to pay-

I felt like all of my earned money had been given away.

.

But, of course, in the light blue skies, I ventured on, and bought some property-

To the likes of Connecticut, Vermont, and Oriental Avenue, a bit of

revenue, I did happen to see.

.

I took the time, without fail-

To visit, a good friend in jail.

.

And, then off to St. Charles Place I went-

Also, to States Avenue and Virginia Avenue,

where much purple time was spent.

.

Orange highlighted I was delighted to see-

St. James Place, New York Avenue, and

that one avenue, simply named Tennessee.

 

I heard that there was free parking was up ahead-

But, somehow or another, I missed it, for

me, it was an issue that was dead.

.

As I continued on my trip, I saw much red up

ahead-

That included Kentucky Avenue, Illinois Avenue,

and Indiana Avenue, before getting tired, and

then resting my head.

.

Before I had left on my trip, I had made sure-

That the Water Works and the Electric Company,

had been paid, so that the services back home

would endure.

.

The trip got more sunny, with

yellow so bright-

Atlantic Avenue, Ventnor Avenue,

and Marvin Gardens, this planned trip

felt so right.

.

A mishap occured, and I ended up

in jail-

I had taken a detour, and quickly

paid, without much fail.

.

After serving time, the better side, of

life was seen-

Pacific Avenue, North Carolina Avenue,

and Pennsylvania Avenue, all highlighted

in green.

.

With a few purchases, came the luxury tax-

It was about time to stop spending, to avoid

going bankrupt, for my card was heading

towards the mode of max.

.

And, then finally came the real reward-

Thanks to funds from a community chest,

I royally blue, studied Park Place and Boardwalk very hard.

.

Of course, I could have started all over again-

But, I grabbed my $200, and headed back home,

up and over the bend.

.

I took a ride by car and by railroad-

And, in the meantime, passed many a road.
