Sandys' Slightly Silly Smarties

The LaHave and District Fire Dept  Auxiliary have been holding an annual trivia contest for about 10 years, and my friend Sandy and I have had a team every year.  Twice we have gotten first place; one year we won the last place booby prize.  This is the first year they've held the contest during the Halloween season. What a wonderful idea that was.  

After all ......... 

We know that as adults, Halloween means shelling out money aka treats on the 31st.  But did you also know that it's a great opportunity to dress up, look ridiculous and act extremely silly -- perfectly in keeping with the name of our group.

Halloween is not just for kids, ya know!

We are definitely the happiest, noisiest, most disruptive team in the room. Even when we come in last place, we accomplish what we set out to do which is to enjoy ourselves to the Nth. We certainly live up to our name.
"Sandys' Slightly Silly Smarties"

Other than we two Sandys', the team has changed members --- some of our members can no longer make the trip due to health and distance. This latest inception has been in place for just a year; but as we've won the last 2 times, we seem to be a great combination of brains and silliness.

Let me introduce you to the group:
(Clockwise from the top left frame)
We have the short guy with the large brain, Joliet "Jake" Blues [from the famous Blue Brothers] & his brilliant wife, the 11th Doctor Who [Matt Smith]; our beautiful, British Cat Woman; her talented husband, Captain Morgan; the 2 Sandys' otherwise known as Bat Woman [Old Bat] and Robin [Sparrow]; and the gorgeous Mexican Wonder Woman and her husband, Captain Vegetable.  
We had a fantastic time last night.  And once we have sufficient time to recuperate from our wild shenanigans, we will be ready to defend our 2X championship title.

PS - 

     Did you know that you can tell the sex of horses by looking at their teeth?

     Or that next to man, rats are the most destructive animal on earth?

It does look like you had some great fun. I do love trivia. Nice to have a Halloween theme going on with costumes and all.


Love the costumes. How original. Looks like you all know how to have fun.

That would be a lot of fun. I haven't dressed up for any type of Halloween since our kids were kids. Your two facts at the end are totally new to me. :)
