I remember these cheapo costumes. You's get the slimsy plastic mask and a sack-like costume with the name of the character and appropriate artwork for him. You looked like an ugly walking sandwich board advertisement in it. I never had one. I was always a cowboy or a bum.

Will these never end? It's enough to put a person off Halloween completely.

Bob: at least your mom didn't cut two eye-holes in a sheet and send you out that way. Did you have a "bum" costume, or just wear old clothes? These days I guess you'd have been pushing a grocery cart... or at least carrying a sign.

The granddaughter buys these things for the boys, and the older they get, the worse they look.

I meant flimsy, not slimsy. Rick: I wore my father's old clothes and made a Freddie the Freeloader face with Halloween makeup.

CB: Which will you be this year?

RR: Yes, these will end. Don't fret, you're unlikely to see many of these on your doorstep on All Hallows Eve. If you've yet to decide on your own costume, stay tuned. I'll have more suggestions on Thursday, Monday and Thursday.

I have a Tor Johnson mask for this year, but I won't be out trick or treating, just scaring any moppets that dare to darken my door.
