'Twas the night before Trick or Treat....

Happy HOWL-oween my bloggie friends

Our neighborhood is really getting into the spirit (spirits?) of the season. Just check out some of these pumpkins...

This looks like a Snowman who overdid it with the self-tanner!

And this one looks like a work-of-art...

Check out this spooky window at our neighborhood drugstore! 

Ah ha! Of course Jackson had something to do with it!

The park across the street has a fun HOWL-oween tradition. The local supermarket donated 100 pumpkins and everyone in the neighborhood is invited to take a pumpkin home, carve it and then bring it back to be lit up in the park.

Here I am posing with one at the base of the big statue. It looks like I'm at a scary cemetery, doesn't it?
The carved Jack-o-lanterns are tucked under trees all around the park. It's eerie...

Just look what happens if you stare at a lit pumpkin too long!!!

Tomorrow I'll be globe-trotting - first to Eric, Asta and Lacie's pawty at the Tower of London, then back to New York, just in time for our annual party at the dog run. 

Don't know if I'll have time to blog on, so I decided to show off my Halloween costume to you tonight. Remember I gave you a clue..."if I was an actor, I'd be working for scale...."

So here it is....

I'm Petey the Magic Dragon!!!

Have a SPOOKtacular HOWL-oween everyone!!!!
