- My being sure I would run out early so bought more;
- Only a dozen children showed up at the door instead of the roll of the local elementary school I had obviously been expecting;
- Vigilant, interfering parents accompanying small kids to the door and telling them how much candy they could take.
The result is that we were left with opened bags of Fun-size Kit-Kats, Oreos and others. But I did stick St. Vincent de Paul with most of it, last Sunday. I made sure nobody saw me put it in the box just inside the hall-door.
I just hope everybody else didn't do the same thing. They would have to put a notice in the bulletin - 'Please check the Wish-List before you make a Donation of Food. Leftover Halloween Candy is not on it.'
