Twas the night before Halloween

Twas the night before Halloween
 And all through the house
 All the creatures were stirring,
 Especially the mouse!
 The "in-house Trick or Treat receptacles" were hung
 By the cauldron with care,
 In hopes that the Great Pumpkin
 Soon would be there.
 The witches were planning
 A party that night
 For their goulfriends, demons, goblins
 And other purveyors of fright.
 Their black cats were busy
 Matting their fur.
 The spiders were spinning,
 You could hear their spinnerets whir!
 Those other familiars,
 The owl and the fox,
 Heard hissing and scratching
 From Pandora's box.
 The cauldron was steaming
 With unsavory stew:
 Eye of newt, wart of toad,
 A most traditional brew.
 The front yard tombstones
 With dead flowers adorned;
 Skeletons hung from the trees
 So all might be warned
 That Halloween Horrors
 This night rule the land,
 So it's best to stay home
 And hold someones hand

I hope your Halloween is frightfully wicked and lots of fun
and have a great weekend.  Nancy

Halloween Saftey

Its getting closer to Halloween, and I thought I let you in a few good  safety tips.
Halloween Safety Rules to Live By
1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER go back to check and see if it's really dead.

2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.

4. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone.

5. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.

6. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to any other house of the dead as well.

7. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, get the out. Quickly.

8. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits. Again, get out.

9. Do not take anything from the dead. No matter how much you like it, it's bound to disagree with you sooner or later.

10. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.

11. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are of the female persuasion. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

12. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately.

13. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog (you're in trouble if you recognize this one), anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

14. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself in the head. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.

15. If power goes out don't look for the cordless phone as it won't work and if your cell phone is not working either, I hate to say it but your screwed.

16. Last, if you constantly hear a whispering kkk iiii llll lllll, sshhhhhhhh, kkk iiii llll llll , sshhhhhhhh, Run like hell away from the sound because, gulp..., the killer is right behind you.

Happy Halloween
I am sorry to report that the author of these Halloween Safety Tips has not been seen since he went camping at Camp Crystal Lake. Once he returns we will give him proper credit.

And  please avoid trick or treating at any house that looks like these
I hope you all have a safe and just for fun a little spooky Halloween.

Thumper and Cadbury

This is thumper one of the two pet bunnies I have,
My granddaughter Gracie named him. And yes we have
Bambi. He comes into the yard to munch on apples in the back orchard. 
This little guy is cadbury he has big floppy ears
and so sweet. we recently brought them home to stay.
right now we have them in the garage so they stay a little warmer. I love watching them romp around. and when they see me now they come running their little noses twitching. so cute

I keep telling myself I got to stop looking at animals. I
seem to fall in love with all of them. And
the next thing you know I'm taking them home.
self control  right
Next week I shall introduce you to my two cats for now have a great weekend.
