Dean drove Ike to a party, Mabel’s trick-or-treating with friends, and I needed to feed Hazel, so I put Rose and Henry in charge of passing out candy. They were thrilled, and soon had it down to a system: Rose would run outside and scout to see who was coming, then run back inside. “Henry, you can’t open the door until they get here!” They opened the front blind so they could watch the approach. Once the be-costumed kids were on the porch, Henry would open the door, Rose would hold the heavy bowl of candy for them to choose from, the kids would leave, and the whole scene would repeat.
