my favorite halloween story

I have not been posting as we have lost the cord to upload from the camera to the computer. I have 2 posts ready, but not the photos. One is about my dungeon basement laundry room!
So, I will share a story an acquaintance told me about her Grandmother.

Grandma had moved to town from the farm, and the family was worried about her safety as this town had a reputation for wild Halloween pranks. An uncle spent Halloween night with Grandma and told of her evening.
At about 10pm there was a knock at the door and on the porch was a group of teenaged boys. "Trick or Treat," they called out in their low voices.
Grandma replied, "Oh, I'm out of candy, but here are some cigarettes for you."
They awoke the next morning to find that every house on the block had been toilet papered except for Grandma's!

If I run out of candy tonight what will I do? I don't smoke. Do you think fat quarters will work?
