Halloween has come and gone... and left me with a conundrum.
Halloween is (normally) big in El Paso, thanks to El Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, only a few miles away. Busloads of children would cross into the US looking for goodies, and I would happily supply them. Two years ago no fewer than 200 children came to my door.
This year, thanks apparently to new restrictions on the border, I was only able to sweeten the hearts of a few dozen children. Now I am left with tons of treats -- and I'm on a diet.
