Take That You Pumpkin

No pumpkin is safe in my community.  We send pumpkins into the stratosphere!  Yep we have  two trebuchet and we have Pumpkin Chuck Day at Stanbery Park to raise money for our park.
 There goes my pumpkin.  I had a white pumpkin this year. See it high in the sky.  Lee caught the photo of  it in the air.  Pumpkins are turned into compost by flinging them to the bottom of the hill.  My pumpkin went high and long.
We make a festival out of the affair. 
 
Animals are brought out. Here is a Barn Owl that had a badly wounded wing and now has to live in captivity.  Owl is safe and cared for, but I know he wants to fly free his eyes told me.
Two wonderful friendly little goats. They knew  their names just like dogs.  They walked on leashes like me.  Lee loves these little goats they remind her of the ones her grandmother raised on her farm.
This Hawk never took his eyes off of me.  I think he wanted me for dinner.  No you are not picking my bones!
Now one last look at Halloween. 
I promised my little friend to show these pictures.  I know they are late, but this is the Halloween Costume Contest for dogs.
My friend showed up to cheer me on in the Halloween Costume Contest.  She is becoming a very good reader and I am so proud of her.  Love her lots and see how she loves me.  I sit just like this to listen when she reads.  Where is the book?
This dog was the winner of the costume contest.  A criminal won!
What is this contest coming to when a criminal wins.
Sophie took second place, she was a princess and I, Sweet William The Scot, took third place with my donkey costume.  I was behind her in line and I followed her tail wherever she went.  Jazzi, I just had a small crush on Sophie and I told her all about my girl friend.  Sophie said if you dump me she would like a date.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine.

  3. Buddy, you hae had a most wonderful Howl-O-Weenie time, and now pumpkin chuckin. Ohhhhhhhh SW, you should never have published the pic with Sophie, it will take you until Christmas to smooch back to Jazzi, although she is a cutie. Like your new friend, hope she is reading you some great books!

  6. We don't think Jazzi is going to dump you, mate! We could JUST see your pumpkin. Looks like it was a great day out.

    And we're glad your little friend is improving in reading. SHE reads all the time and doesn't understand people who don't.

  12. Sweet William, that was a cool picture of your pumpkin getting chucked. I think you should have won the contest, but all the pals looked really nice. I bet Jazzi won't ever dump you, so Sophie will have to look somewhere else.

    Happy Thanksgiving

  15. And there was silly old me thinking that trebuchet was a type of font. The things you learn reading blogs.
    But Sweet William, better tread carefully with Jazzi, Remember she has a BIG sister with a tank...
