Flashback Friday...HowlOWeen Past

Hey everyone!
Wow, it's Friday again already!   The last couple of weeks I showed you my HowlOWeen costumes from recent years and this week I'm up to last year's holiday.

Here is what HowlOWeen looked like in my territory in 2013....

My date was the lovely Millie and we dressed up as candy corn and a hershey's kiss!   BOL

The crabby girls spent the howliday with their dashing beau Coccolino:::

They hit the dance floor too!

AND:   Oceana wrote a Ghost Story for Madi's event: 
Here is her story:

The Seagull
Once inside a crabitat dreary, while I wandered scared and leary

Over many a glamorous empty shell and sandy floor;

All at once there came a banging as if something loudly clanging,

Clanking at my cocohut door
‘Tis the wind and nothing more.’

Open now I threw the shutter and in the bird came with a flutter

As I then began to shudder, wondered at a sight not seen before;

To what would cause this stark intrusion and upon me cause confusion

Worry what this gull’d emplore, why he's here inside my door;

Quoth the Seagull ‘Nevermore’.

Then to me he told his tale, upon the surf he saw arose a tail

And a fin that could only mean a whale;

Teeth to kill with blood and gore, the creature flashed a vile smile

Quoth the Seagull ‘Nevermore’.

It thrashed and caused the sea to foam, and frightened animals all did moan

And scurry and swim and fly ashore, lest they perish and live no more;

By this the gull did scare by telling, all the while my fear is welling

The whale in my mind I see, and from its horror I would flee;

Should it here in my crabitat would be

Quoth the Seagull ‘Nevermore’.

Furthered by the bird’s strange telling, soon it occurred to me a clearing

Of the gull and his real meaning, as all is not quite what it’s seeming;

This odd gull’s whale is not all flesh, but rather is a see-through mesh

Made of fog and mist and spirit, nothing more of this is to it;

A ghost whale is the real subject of this sly lore,

Only this and nothing more.

Thankfully he left no dropping as he flew from my hut topping

Still I feel the fear he caused, and before the surf I always paused;

Looking for the ghost whale form and the fearsome smile that it wore

Quoth the Seagull ‘Nevermore’.

Didn't she write a great story for HowlOWeen?!?    Did you get your pix sent to Dory for her upcoming party?!?

Grr and Woof,
Sarge,  Pol Comm
