Barks my friends! Another week gone and tomorrow is the BIG day – HALLOWEEN! We can’t wait. We are going to celebrate the way mom did when growing up. We are all going to bundle up in the big bed with popcorn and watch scary movies. I think we are all excited just to be together. I’m sure we will all be snoring before the first show ends – barks!
But I did dress up in my costume. Our local pet store had a dress up party and I went last night. It was so much fun! I got to strut myself around in my Captain America outfit and be a Super Hero for a while. They had puppy treats and treat bags for anipals that I got to bring home. Score one for the little puppy huh? This is a picture that mom took of me in my outfit. If you look closely, I’m smiling and you can see my teeth. Dad says I’m Captain America but mom says with those two front teeth showing, I could be VAMPIRE Captain America – BARKS!
Mom/dad say we have lots of errands to do this weekend. One of those errands they say I have to go with them. The way they said it, it didn’t sound good. I’m thinking this weekend might be the V.E.T. thing they keep spelling out around me. They don’t understand that us anipals know these key important words that they like to spell. I’m hoping I’m wrong about the V.E.T. but the way daddy keeps saying it with a grin in his voice, I don’t think so. I’ll keep you posted.
And my friends, I have a special treat for you today. All of us anipals and even the rock clan have been working on a project to help end 31 Days of Spook. We put together a little something and we hope that you enjoy it my friends.
Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month. This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are going to highlight Halloween. What did you do for Halloween as a child? Did you trick or treat door to door, go to a Halloween festival or did you stay at home? This month let’s share what we did and show pictures – costumes, movies, whatever your favorite Halloween captured.
BOO! Mom never celebrated Halloween per say when she was growing up. She says that she went out one time during her childhood – it was cold and wet and she hated. And what did she dress up as that one time? You won’t believe it – a CLOWN! Can you believe that?
After that ill fated time trick or treating door to door, her parents got smart. Why go door to door and worry about your child when you can keep them home to have fun. So from then on, mom and siblings told their parents what kind of candy they wanted and their parents bought it for them so they could have it on Halloween. As their dad passed out candy to the regular trick or treaters, mom and her siblings had pizza, ate candy and watched scary movies on television. Those are some of her best memories – watching the likes of Vincent Price, Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi just to name a few. I even found this picture of mom during her teenage years.
