Ghouls, Boos, et le chat

The rainy day turned into a pleasant evening for Hallowe'en, which encouraged little ghouls and boos to trick and treat through the neighbourhood.  How cute they were - and so polite!  




Over at Nikki's blog, a lovely new chair has been chosen to join the family. Sammy has taken a particular  liking to it, so much so, in fact, that her muse (or mews) had a little word with me...with a slight touch of Dr. Seuss...



Happy November!

  1. I can see you are still as entertainingly creative as ever Glo :-) Love the chair and verse and also the post showing Adrian in the mud!

    It poured with rain all evening here so we were spared Halloween trick or treaters who are often older and more impolite than your attractive little callers.

    Sorry to read of your fall and also the plate dropping incident, I'm glad it was only the plate which broke and not the foot!

    Happy November Glo :-) Where has this year gone? Oh yes, it disappeared while I waited for the Summer which never arrived :-(

    1. Thanks for your lovely comment, ShySongbird, and pleased to hear you enjoyed my efforts :) I am grateful to live in an area where the youngsters seem to enjoy good fun without causing any disruption There is also a community gathering during the evening where they are treated to free hot chocolate, hot dogs, a walk through a spooky trail, and fireworks put on by the Fire Dept. It all turns out to be very family oriented.

      Thanks, I have recovered nicely from my fall, and toe injury which really turned a lovely shade of purple! ;) Yes, the year has simply sped along ~ hopefully next year your spring and summer will be much more cooperative :)

    1. I'm pleased you liked the trick or treaters, and yes, I thought the makeup on the werewolf was very well done. I also loved reading about your Halloween and how it kind of backfired, you might say ;) I'm glad you enjoyed the chair and verse and thanks so much for the birthday wishes :)

    1. You are most welcome! The 'mews' persisted early birthday morning before I even headed to bed, so had to get it all finished up for posting! I'm so happy Roomie and you loved my little creation enough to consider framing it. Wow! ~ and even making the fff's...now that's a great birthday gift :)

  8. Another delightful, and brilliant, post. The illustration and verse is wonderful, all the more so as Sammy is my favourite furry friend.
    I'm glad that you liked the ecard and rose, and hope that you had a most enjoyable day. Flighty xx

  11. I have always loved the Dr Seuss books and I'm sure with your talents you could produce some rival literature.
