What a generous gesture Dishdog. At my work, they would rather give me a horrendous wedgie and hang me on the door then cover for me on halloween. As for my plans, I park my car facing the road in the driveway and turn off all the lights in my house, and when kids come I turn on the headlights and start the engine. It's a kicker to the younger ones! Then I throw a snickers or what not at them and they laugh. Don't want to scare them to the point where they don't like to trick or treat anymore.
