I wonder, do kids still prank if no one answers the door and they can see lights on inside the house? I remember years ago, we pranked houses that ignored trick or treaters. We didn't do really bad things, although I heard stories about kids who did. Our pranks were mild compared to some. Did you prank as a kid? Feel free to send me your stories and I'll post them here: CJ's Email
Again in the spirit of Halloween, here's another little Halloween poem for children:
by CJ Heck
Bats can hit a baseball.
Girls can bat their eyes.
But the bats I want to talk about
fly with radar in the skies.
Bats are cute and furry.
I think bats are cool,
(if I could only catch one
I’d bring it in to school).
I’m sure YOU think they’re creepy.
They might even make you scream.
But bats will always be a part
of scary Halloween.
It's not so hard to like them,
well, it's not exactly automatic,
but mom and dad don’t mind them
IF they don’t live in our attic.
