What a Haul For Moi
Since it's Halloween, I decided to join the kiddies who are trick-or-treating tonight. I was wearing my swell mask, especially designed for moi by Buffalo Gal and Drawer Dude, who actually crafted it using his impressive artistic skills. I blogged about it before, but you'll want to see it again.

Better Give Some Treats, Because My Tricks
You Don't Want to See
I made the proverbial haul, I must say. Here is a photo I took showing my hand-made Halloween basket (personally weaved by The Lady With the Red Hair) loaded with kitty treats. Thanks, "Flat" Cauli III, for standing-in for moi, since somebody had to operate the digital camera.
I'd share some, "Flat" Cauli, but we're watching your waistline.
Pretty successful evening's work, if I do say so myself. Too bad Halloween only comes once a year!
What better way to wind-up October SpookFest than by chowing down on some tuna-flavored treats?

P.S. Mike Oldfield composed his first instrumental album, Tubular Bells (1973), which was the first LP released by Virgin Records. The record remained on the British pop music charts for 279 weeks, selling a reported 17 million worldwide. This video used the shortened version that comprised part of the soundtrack to the motion picture The Exorcist (1973), which set what was then a new standard for realistic graphic, violent representations of supernatural evil. Some especially sensitive audience members passed out or became physically ill during particularly vivid portions of the movie. By today's standards, it is fairly tame. Watching the movie today has a nostalgic feel, particularly since gratuitous graphic violence is now the norm in the horror genre. Fortunately, one may enjoy Oldfield's musical masterpiece without watching the film.
