I'm fine with young children but I don't give out treats to teen aged galoots.

Oh, I don't mind, especially if they're in costume/makeup, polite, and most especially if they're taking around younger sibs. Crassly speaking, the neighborhood teens who receive your kindness are more likely to treat you and your property with respect.

=alstro, sad because I'm ill and can't attend a neighbor's Halloween party tonight. I was going to wear the sari I bought on a whim when I went to India--if I could follow the instructions on how to wrap & tuck it. As a backup, my kimono. Maybe next year!
