Happy Meow-loween

3 jack-o-lanterns

We Three Pumpkins

This card, “We 3 Pumpkins” features prior year photos of jack-o-lanterns from the previously mentioned Panhandle Trail Night Walk. The Rennerdale Youth Group carves more than 100 pumpkins donated by various farm markets and grocery stores, and the Collier Girl Scouts set out and light the jack-o-lanterns along a half-mile stretch of the Panhandle Trail from the bridge near the Walkers Mill trailhead to the Sunnyside entrance. I photograph the pumpkins every year, and of course I find the feline-themed pumpkins!

Time to put away the Halloween imagery, so until next year, Happy Meow-loween!

When shall we three meet again?
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

Guess the kids have been getting into my literature textbooks again. I thought my Riverside Shakespeare was too heavy for them, but there is no getting in the way of a determined reader. Now that they’ve mastered Act 1, Scene 1 of MacBeth, I can’t wait to see how they interpret Scene 2.

Maybe reading to them as kittens really did work.

Actually, Mimi, Mewsette and Giuseppe were gathered around the lamp “to keep warm” as they said, because the temperature was all of about 65 degrees. Time to get out the cozy beds!

Your Kitty is a Star!

Your kitty is a star!

I photographed the Night Walk on the Panhandle Trail, featuring over 100 carved jack-o-lanterns! There’s always at least one kitty—this year there were two—but there was absolutely no moonlight so photographs were difficult. I thought this was the cutest, a kitty with stars!

I wish I’d had more light for the other one, but perhaps just the glowing cat face is just as effective.

Scary Kitty!

Help, Mom’s Gone Crazy

Is this what you want me to do?

I just can’t figure out what she wants me to do but it has something to do with these pumpkins! Sometimes mom gets these crazy ideas and she chases us around the house and tries to get us to do things that we don’t understand, and she’s been after us with these pumpkins for days. I can’t wait till Halloween is over and mom gets back to normal!

Yesterday while mom was working on her computer I saw a few kitties wearing silly costumes. It’s just a really good thing she didn’t try that, and that’s all I’ll say on that subject.
