Spoofy Halloween

There was another giant Halloween party at the marina this year.  Last year, the rave hooked in a bunch of young people who spent most of the night looped out of their head.  This year, it is another bunch of young people, who for the most part were not dressed for the 54 degree temperatures and NE wind.  I didn't stick around long enough to see if they were getting looped.

This year, the marina put a large fence up around the stage and grounds to keep the party folks from wandering around the marina.  There were a lot of police in uniform and under cover, so I suspect that crowd control won't be a problem. 

But then there are these poor little animals who were subjected to the whole indignity of Halloween.  

One of the favorite goofy things for Halloween are the Bubba Teef which you can order on line or get in some stores locally.  There are a lot of styles of Bubba Teef.  The ones with  glow-in-the-dark green worms are pretty cool, as shown below.

I do think that it is advisable to pack the teeth with peanut butter when enticing the dog to wear them.

No ghouls and goblins showed up here.  Just some squirrels running about.   Wishing you the best Halloween from our neck of the woods.


  1. I gotta comment the teeth!
    Good Hallowe'en stuff, Syd!

    As a drunk, I liked to do my drinking in warmth, no matter how looped--grin

  2. Glad they fenced in the ghoblins for the marina.
    I walked around with my nephew who tricked up a load of sugar for the weeks to come.

    Trick-or-treating resembles the late medieval practice of souling, when poor folk would go door to door on Hallowmas (November 1), receiving food in return for prayers for the dead on All Souls' Day

  3. ha. cute stuff...i like the photographer dog...and the one prior to it...

  4. Halloween was a non-event here at my house. Not one trick or treater and the candy is unopened. Those poor dogs. Hilarious. :)

  5. My baby granddaughter is a "pea in a pod" So cute!

    What fun to dress up babies and dogs!!

  6. Okay. One year in high school my sweet Jessie dressed up as pregnant red neck girl and all of us who loved her wept silently.
    It was too convincing!

  7. Hope it was a good one, Syd. I stayed inside and hid from the treaters, while the Viking dressed up and passed out candy. His mentality is about that of a 10 year old, but I still love him.


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
