Halloween,candy corn and Mom

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

Good morning everyone-Halloween has arrived. Halloween has in many households became a huge decorating and celebration holiday. Me not so much. Of course as a kid I went trick or treating but that was many years ago. What Halloween does now is make me think of Mom.

The reason being is because Mom LOVED candy corn. Not just any kind. It had to be Brach's.  Now I love sweets, chocolate being a favorite but NOT candy corn because to me it was too sicky sweet and pure sugar but Mom could eat that stuff by the bag full and one year over the course of 2 months she ate 8 bags all by herself.

So every since they started putting out the Halloween candy and I walked into a store I was reminded of Mom. Funny the things that trigger memories.  I wonder if they have candy corn in heaven along with their gold paved streets. Wishing everyone a bewitching Halloween no matter how you celebrate.

Gloria Todor -Yes edibles do indeed. Yes chocolate is my choice as well. If I am going to have the calories it has to be chocolate.

I'm a little late to this party. LOL

I've never been a fan of Candy Corn. I could get sick just thinking about your mom eating so many bags....OMG.

Memories are funny things...we are so lucky to have them! (Most of the time.)

Sharon Tara -Neither have I. Yuck and yes the thought of 8 bags is nauseating. Only good thing it was only 2 dollars a bag. Pure orange and yellow sicky sugar.

Oh Sharon Lee - I wonder if they have candy corn in heaven too, or if all the rock stars have formed a new band, and what do people do "up there" all day ....I guess we will eventually find out. I bet candy corn and Halloween will always bring back that memory of your Mom :-)

Mary Douglas -It will always remind me of Mom for sure. If they have candy corn then I would think they have better candy as well. Good question as to what they do up there all day. Nobody comes back to tell us.

I will side with your mom... candy corn is a great Halloween treat. And if nothing else, I will put in a bowl and use it for color. Hope all is well with you, Sharon.

I'm with you - can't stand candy corn or other sweets that are pure sugar.  Give me chocolate any day!  How are the travels?  You know some of us are dying to explore the world like you're doing and would love some updates. There must be so many exciting things to do and see when you have no schedule.

Candy corn is so sicky sweet.  Yes I am a fan of chocolate too. My travels are going well. I am currently in Washington visiting a fellow rainer. I will do my best to update everybody more often.  Anybody that really decides to do I am doing can.  Yes there is many wonderful places to visit in the U.S. and Canada.  Thank you for stopping by.
