into a basket. Late in the afternoon my
neighbors (the ones I have hijacked as grandkids) came over to show their cute
costumes before heading across town to Trick-or-Treat with their cousins. I
happily handed each of them a big candy bar.

I had dinner, and settled down to watch a movie. Suddenly, at around 8:30, I
gasped, “Hey! Our doorbell hasn’t rung once!” Was it because of the pandemic?
“Oh,” St. Bob
said, “That’s because I didn’t turn the porch light on.”
