Augustus Galoop is my SASS alias. (besides being the fat kid that fell into the chocolate river in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory) With so many cousins & all the neighborhood kids, Halloween was a real big deal in the old neighborhood. The bars gave out the BIG chocolate bars (3 Musketeers, Milkey Way, etc.) and there were a lot of them, all the neighbors gave out great stuff (one of my favorites was the old lady who gave out her home-made carmel apples,) they put "Affy Tapples" to shame ! And any aduly out with the kids got a shot or a beer at the bars,(they MORE than made it up in business!) And we could be out until about 11:00 PM & nobody worried, it was the only time that the kids from the north side of Rt.120 got along with the kids from the south side. We'd even exchange notes on WHO had the best candy or treats ! Never missed a Christmas....or a Midnight Mass (mom's fave). Being Catholic & Irish, what can I say. Having one being "owed" has it's perks Are the in-laws Orthodox ?
