The season is upon us … I mean the season of “trick or treat.”
My trick or treat days did not begin until I was about 7 years old – 1958.
In those days, the candy gathering took up both Saturday and Sunday nights. My folks were parents of six kids, so at any given Halloween, there were at least four of us, each with a grocery sack, out begging for candy.
My maternal grandmother, Edna Gum, lived in a little bungalow on the corner of Eighth and Randolph streets, and this was our base of operations.
