(Rexy at school)
Then, that night we went to my Aunt Laurie's house (yes, I'm named after her) for trick or treating. My aunt lives in a small town 40 miles south of us on a dead end road so I knew it wouldn't be unsafe or overcrowded. I wasn't sure if Rexy would be into it - more strangers - but after she saw the kids coming over to my aunt's house and getting candy she was all for it. So we set off, the four of us (me, DH, Rexy, Aunt Laurie), to trick or treat. We only went to about six houses which was about right for her stranger tolerance and my candy limit for her. At the next to last house we walked down a long, dark driveway and up onto a porch filled with what looked like rejected furniture. 2 big dogs were barking inside. If my aunt hadn't known this gal since she was 8 years old I might have hesitated to go up there. Anyway, I was apprehensive that Rexy might be scared. Well, Jeri opened the door and Rexy said her "Trick or treat!" and her "Thank you." The dogs calmed down and my aunt started chatting with Jeri for a minute. Well for some reason Rexy felt really comfortable there because she looked at Jeri and said, "Please come in!" and walked right into her house! Trying to hold back from laughing too much we got her back out on the porch and explained we weren't going in. As soon as we stopped talking she said, "Thank you!" and walked right in again! She was very determined. Too funny. Some people, she just likes their vibe or something. She can always tell who the insincere ones are, too.
