And Now, The Moment You've All Been Waiting For...

Yes, we went to visit the church and let me just say, Father John ROCKED Halloween. We stopped by the rectory to say hello and he was at the ready with a basket brimming with full-sized, top-tier candy bars. The place was all decked out for Halloween-- apparently he has a party every year, which totally puts me to shame.
Then, because he now knows of my secret passion for candy, Fr. John gave me a bar from his secret stash, something I'd never had before: a Bewley's Irish Coffee Truffle bar, imported from Ireland. Oh. My. Goodgravy. Talk about YUM. This thing was rich and chocolatey, with an extra-special boozey kick at the end. I told you he rocked Halloween! I'm anxiously awaiting next week's bulletin to see how many trick-or-treaters he got.

Patti...thanks for the mention! I am VERY happy to tell you that the grand total of trick-or-treaters was 155 kids, 9 adults, and 1 poodle! (Last year, 109 kids, 7 adults, and no poodles at all...) It was a wonderful night and it was so good to see you and Henri. I hope a tradition is born!......Father John
