Happy Halloween

Written by Dolores Faye Thorn

T'was Halloween night and all through the house.

Creatures were stirring, bugs, cats, and a mouse.

The pumpkins were carved into faces with care.

In hopes that a candle would soon be placed there.

With ma in her apron fixing platters of sweets.

We'd settled our brains for a long night of treats.

When out on the lawn there arose such a roar.

I sprang to my feet and ran to the door.

And what to my wandering eyes should appear.

But a red deviled monster with a big yellow spear.

Like a bat from a cave I ran - still he came.

I thought I'd escaped but he called out my name.

Mr. Thorn - Mr. Thorn - please don't be afraid.

It's me, little Jimmy in this masquerade.

The moon on the lawn glowed a bright orange cast.

And I thought I saw witches on brooms flying past.

White sheet like things floated, they looked just like ghosts.

But the skeleton with bones clacking, it scared me the most.

Someone looked like a vampire his face a ghastly pale hue.

I finally realized it was Harry all covered with glue.

That kid like a spider so lively and quick.

I knew in a moment it was my neighbor's son Nick.

One sweet little princess, so lovely was she -

Whatever was she doing in this strange company?

When all of the goblins pulled mask from there head.

I knew that this night there was nothing to dread.

Then this strange purple monster greeted me and I said, "Who are you?"

He gave me no answer just hollered Boooooooooo….

And putting a finger aside one large eye.

He got in his space ship and flew to the sky.

I knew I had never seen anything like that before.

I watched him in wonder quickly shutting my door.

But I heard him exclaim ere he flew out of sight.

Happy Halloween to all - and have a real spooky night!

Party Time at the Bear Garden!

Next Sunday (31st October) The Bear Garden turns 18, to celebrate its coming of age, Andrew and the team will be having a party at The Refectory at Guildford Cathedral. For the past three years I have attended the party with Barbara of Barbara-Ann Bears but this year as I'll be moving I'm sad to say I'll be up to my neck in boxes instead of celebrating.

The party is always a great event and this year will be no exception, they have a whole host of special guest including Barbara and Charlie and William from Charlie Bears.

This year is the first year I have been supplying The Bear Garden and I have made ten special little mice that will be available for the first time at the party.

For more information on the party please visit The Bear Garden website.

Meanwhile here's a sneaky look at a few of the little ones that will be looking for new homes on Sunday!

The time has come.....

Big news!!!! I'm finally leaving my parents home at the grand old age of 31!!!! Me and Lex have found a lovely two up two down to rent in Dunstable, about 30 minutes from my parents. I must admit that I have mixed feelings about the whole thing. 80% excited, 10% scared and 10% sad that I'll be leaving my animals :-( and as the new house does not allow pets, we'll not be getting anything to keep me company as I had hoped. We get the keys on 29th October so the next few weeks will be lost in the nightmare of packing and moving! I'm dreading that bit, once we are in and settled it will be amazing, we've just got to get to that point. I'll try to keep you posted on my progress over the next few weeks....
