My ONLY Halloween Memory!
When I was growing up we lived in the country and very rarely would any trick or treaters stop by. For some odd reason, my parents would not let us go Trick or Treating! Who knows why! I gave up on them years ago! Perhaps it was because a girl in town had run out in front of a car and been hurt horribly. She walked with a marked limp after that and was affected emotionally as well as mentally.
So my only memory of Halloween happened as a result of my mother deciding we could go to the Halloween party at church. I don't remember what my siblings were costumed as, but my dear sweet mother had come up with a homemade spaceman outfit for me. I remember being covered in foil with a metal strainer on my head. I, needless to say, was mortified!
When we arrived at the church, late as usual, everyone was already inside. My mother instructed me to stay outside by myself IN THE DARK and come in SHORT time later so know one would know who I was. Scared and rattled,I stood outside and could not get my feet to go into that church basement by myself! I wandered around outside for what seemed like hours. No one came looking for me either. I must have been about 5 or 6 years old at the time. I knew that my father was at a neighbor's house somewhere near the church. But where?
A little spacegirl in a foil suit and a metal strainer on her head prowled the street that long-ago Halloween night trying to locate her father by looking in windows!
I finally found him, drinking a beer at my best friend Judy's house.
