When I took the dogs out around 7, I heard a clunking noise; found that in the eaves, where we put a Havahart trap years ago, that a weasel got into the trap and was moving around, causing the trigger to clunk. Brought it outside and, after figuring out how to open it again, let the terrified thing out.

Trick or Treat! or is it too early?

Based on the newspaper under the trap the weasel was in, the trap had been there for 10 years and this was the first thing it caught. Probably chasing a mouse; maybe the mouse caught in the trap nearby.

It's not a weasel, it's a marten.

What do you call a deal where someone works with an evil entity to gain knowledge that puts that person in a position of great power and respect, but causes trouble for vast numbers of people?

A Faucian bargain.

I haven't seen one of those in years. They used to be made in my hometown.

It's a little over 4 hours until Trick or Treating begins here.  I figured it was safe to bring up the candy.  Hopefully, I can stay out of it.  Bought Quaker Chewy Dipps this year.  Basically, they are chocolate covered granola bars.  No high fructose corn syrup, no artificial preservatives or flavors and no added colors and they are 140 calories in a 1.09 oz bar.  Almost as big as a full sized candy bar, but a lot cheaper.  Full sized  Hershey bars (1.55 oz) were .70 each, these were .22 each.  Another advantage is I won't be leftover with full sized Hershey bars (220 calories) to eat.   They aren't gluten-free, but that's not a problem for me.

Oldest turn 18 yesterday.

He wanted to go skydiving so we did.

Absolutely perfect weather!

Bought the video picture package for the oldests. 

Shot of him when we were coming in.  My chute is lower left corner. Our jump plane is very bottom center.
