Halloween has always been a favorite holiday with my family. I’ve poured through our photos and came up with several with a Halloween theme starting with our first cat – Beulah.
Now is this a proper cat for Halloween, or what?
Eventually she grew into a good size.
When we added to our family – a bird named CooCooPoo - Beulah was entranced. She adored the bird. Way too much. We had to hang the bird’s cage from the ceiling.
When Beulah leapt onto the cage and nearly brought it down, we gave the bird to another relative.
I enjoyed making costumes. Here’s my son in his Snoopy outfit. He helped make the head.
Fooling around with papier-mâché on a balloon to make costume heads is such great fun, so when I had a group of Cub scouts, they all made their own for Halloween.
I can't remember which one was my son, although I kind of recognize that clown in the center with red and black striped sleeves.
The young man on the right made the balloon head but refused to wear it. He had the first Mohawk haircut I ever saw and wore jeans to high school graduation rather than a suit like the rest of his classmates. Luke, a wonderful kid, always marched to his own drummer. He died a few years ago in his early forties from cancer. Greatly missed.
And this clown is my granddaughter clowning around.
Do you have fun times on Halloween?
