Critter Bash

Welcome to 


Three things cannot long be hidden:
 the sun, the moon, and the truth."
Buddha

Three things can be long enjoyed:
humans, animals and kindness.

Once upon an evening in Saint Paul, Minnesota, 



Look closely you'll see white stuff.

A wee bit of winter entered
not so much in the metro area
thank goodness!
 I have a rule about snow falling before Halloween!
Old Man Winter knows it too!



The sweetest most adorable pups waiting patiently at home.



They didn't see Mom 
until quite late.





Pumpkins were at their spectacular and Boo-riffic-ness!


"The way we spend our time defines who we are."
Jonathan Estrin


Outside
The James J. Hill House
you could view a bit more of that white stuff.


This is looking up inside the art gallery of the Hill house,
I'll have more to follow in another post.


We are still ecstatic over the
Victorian Ghost Stories and Tour
my friend Debbie and I attended last night.


Everyone thinks they have the best dog,
 but we all know there are "Best dog wonders"
 all over the world, if you take the time to meet them!


This week played with my best pup-pal-Rusty!




Once my visit is over
Rusty always sits at the front window watching me as I leave.
He knows I always roll down the window and wave to him!
Another Best Dog Ever!


My own pups waiting at home always can smell who my recent playmate was!



Really Mom, again?!

On a curious note, if any of you are dressing up for Halloween this year, please share who or what you'll be.

I'm rethinking my own costume this year 
(something I do over and over until the last minute)
after seeing Lyra's costume for this affair!



Play and dressing-up Halloween feeds our brains well!


Here are a couple of worthy thoughts,


The trouble is, you think you have time. 
Buddha


Either you plan your day, or your day plans you.
Self made success/happiness
is waiting for you!

Enjoy your weekend
next week is coming quickly,
and take good care of you!

Beautiful cathedral!

I think that’s right about the truth. It comes to the surface.

Hello, I love all the pups. Aren't all dogs the best? The ghost stories tour sounds like fun, what a neat place. Dressing up for Halloween is fun.

I enjoy animals and kindness and some humans, lol. What a great post, loved the photos. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

A fun post except for the white stuff! I think I had better get my snow tires on! ;-)

I have a friend who has family still in Minnesota and he was telling me just this afternoon about the snow they are having. Meanwhile, here in the East, it's just hurricanes and nor'easters.

Hi Karen, fun as always to look through your pics and words.Even often familiar places, - with your presentation I see them as mysterious and new. Good job! Thanks for visiting/reading my blog! You always inspire me with your vital energy! Keep it up! Happy Halooowin!

My daughter had snow in Michigan yesterday. Philly is too warm right now and I am happy with that! Cute pups, the black one reminds me of our Molly who has since passed.
