Trunk or treat is a great idea, and these decorated cars are awesome. What's sad is the reason we do it. So many neighborhoods are built for cars over pedestrians, with houses too far apart, no sidewalks, and dangerously fast traffic. And then there are rural families, who not only have no trick-or-treaters, but no one to look at their house decorations!

My husband has seven kids and a basement storage room. The problem is, that basement is used for storage of all his tools and equipment, filled so much that we can't find anything!

My two kids have band practice until dark, then hours of homework. I had to make an appointment to help one apply for college and give the other a driving lesson.

Now I'm all verklempt.

The dysfunctional family that never communicates was the biggest flaw, although we've seen that before in fairy tales, because fully-functioning families don't have these big conflicts that make a story. The rest is stuff we've learned to overlook in Disney movies because none of them make much sense. But the silliness in the last couple minutes of that video was priceless!

The takeaway paragraph in this ad is this:

"Lysol" has has amazing, proved power to kill germ-life on contact . . . truly cleanses the vaginal canal even in the presence of mucous matter. Thus "Lysol" acts in a way that makeshifts like soap, salt or soda never can.

Notice the original stress on the words "acts" and "never can." Savvy women read that as a birth control method, and indeed that's what Lysol was hinting at. That's all they could do, because even telling women about birth control methods was illegal back then. Although it was ineffective to use in this manner, I can imagine that the long-term effects of this caustic solution rendered at least some women eventually infertile.

The pita raises more questions than it answers. And now I am wondering whether a pop tart is a sandwich. If a pop tart is a sandwich, then how about a pie? If not, then what about those horrible Uncrustables? What if you covered a sandwich in chocolate, like a Moon Pie?

I showed this to my senior daughter, and she is gung-ho to get a portrait just like this made with her cat. She even called my brother and arranged it. Brother Bill couldn't stop laughing, but he agreed to do it. She says she will send it out with her graduation invitations.

Thankyouverymuch, John.

I dunno, recording TV was pretty common in the '80s, and TiVo was introduced in 1999. I still have the last episode of M*A*S*H and the 1996 NCAA championship game on VHS somewhere.
