Happy Halloween!


I know this is an older painting but since I recently posted this year's Halloween paintings I thought I'd dig this one out since it's one of my favorites.

Anyway, today was pretty busy - first we had our Grandpuppy (or Granddogger as Chris says) Lola for the weekend - Violet and Linda were thrilled, but the cats and Jabby could all think of other things they'd rather have happen.


Today was also our 23rd anniversary and we celebrated as usual by going to the Chiller Theater convention. Violet wore her Cleopatra costume, she looked great & a lot of people wanted to take her picture! Here's a pic of her with her Gus Fink Puff Dog, Violet's a huge Gus Fink fan (like her mom!) and luckily he was there or she'd have been very disappointed.

I was very happy and excited that I got to meet LeVar Burton there! I told him that we watch him almost every night in TNG reruns :) Even Violet knew who he was, although she didn't recognize him at first without his visor (she watches with us sometimes).

Other than that it was the usual Halloweenery, trick or treating and such - we took Linda with us for a bit but she barked furiously at the decorations in which she could recognize a face, pretty cute! Violet did quite well for herself, a 5 lb haul (!)

:) Lola is insanely cute (not that I'm biased or anything). The only thing not cute about her is her voice, which sounds like fingernails on a blackboard.

She & Linda make an interesting pair since they're polar opposites (Linda is a collie, I really need to post pics of her here). I'd love a nice photo of them sitting nicely together but all they want to do is play & they won't hold still!

Great Cleopatra costume! Did you make that? Love the Gus Fink puff dog too! How cool to have your anniversary on Halloween.

Thanks Valerie! No I didn't make the costume, we got the headdress when we went to the Cleopatra exhibit at the Franklin Institute in July, and the rest was a "Cleopatra" costume. Chris did her makeup & was even more elaborate when he redid it for trick or treating - I had quite a time removing it!

I added a link to Gus Fink's new site Dr. Krinkles - sadly he said he probably won't be doing any more Chiller Cons (Violet will have to spend our money on something else!) but happily it's because he's so busy with Dr. Krinkles. I like seeing other artists do well, it gives me hope, lol.
