    GeorgeGlass got a reaction from BronxWench in Next year, I really need to create a trick-or-treater bingo card. Items would include   
    We had almost 200 trick-or-treaters. I attribute this to (a) Halloween falling on a Saturday, (b) excellent weather, and (c) lots of my neighbors devising clever ways to hand out candy safely. (For my part, I built a cardboard candy-slide and dispensed the treats from my porch.)

    I’d meant to pick up some tongs, but instead handed stuff out with a ladle as I froze my butt off outside. (Though in fairness, the ladle was also good for smacking hands when people tried to reach into the bowl.) Though most kids on the side street stop before they get to our buildings… for various reasons.
    Anyway, if 2021 continues like 2020 then next year the kids will be in camouflaged hazmat suits and combat gear when they come to your door demanding water, canned goods, and all the toilet paper they used on your house in years past.

    GeorgeGlass reacted to Mal in <Fingers crossed> I went and got tested for COVID-19 today. I feel like trash t   
    I just got released from hospital today after 5.5 long grueling days. The bad news is I’m not fully recovered. I still have a bit of pneumonia in my lungs and am a little run down. The good news is that my doctors felt confidant to take me all the way off O2. Meaning that as long as I’m taking it easy my O2 lung saturation is sufficient to keep me going! Now I just need to rest and recover a bit more, build my strength back up and everything should work out. I do feel better, so that is good. (Much better than I felt going into hospital), I’m hoping now with  couple more weeks to recover I can get back to relative normality in my life… I’ll continue to keep you guys posted but I want to thank everyone here again who was pulling for me while I’ve been sick. It really does mean the world to me!

    Sorry about that, Mal. When you described your symptoms, I kind of figured. Hope you continue to be on the mend.

    All I’ll say is when you’re wanting to pick up a Dutch translation of Pippi Longstocking for a Dutch friend’s kids birthday, don’t believe the person who tells you to go into the bookshop and ask for Pijpslet.

    Your phone knows how stressed you are and wants you to legally get some herbal remedy.

    Because “George” and “Glass” appear consecutively in the headline.
