Happy Halloween


I’m not into horror movies, ghouls or scary things, but I do love Halloween. I can’t get enough of pumpkins (the head in this photos is a ghost pumpkin – it’s naturally white), piles of orange leaves, acorns plunking the roof of my car, and little children in adorable outfits. My 12 year-old son is at the tail end of being able to dress up and go trick-or-treating. He always comes up with his own ideas, and they’re always…um…interesting. This year’s costume requires several bags of Wonder Bread. (A product, that in itself, is quite scary!) I’m not exactly sure what he’s going to do with the bread, but I do believe that a bag of it will be on his head.

Happy Halloween!


  1. Terry, is this the same ghost pumpkin that is in the hencam now? If so, does it still have the face? The hens (and candy) seem a little afraid of it!!!

  2. I am glad I am not the only one who LOVES Halloween…even better than Christmas (no stress)….I hate scary too, but LOVE the colors and the pumpkins and all the goodies that go with it. We have a pumpkin weighing contest in the library. I get the biggest one I can find and the kids try and guess the weight..Out of 900 kids I always get one winner..This year they guessed exactly….All the birds are in the coop today, Terry…is it raining? Send some to California….89 here today..too hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Terry – This has nothing to do with chickens or goats, but I have been curious for over a week. What did your son do with all the Wonder Bread? Please let us know. Thanks, Sandy

    • Oh, it was great! He made a scepter with a decorated pole topped by a loaf of Wonder Bread. His hat was made from a Wonder Bread wrapper. He had on a white shirt that we put the WB logo on. Afterwards, I fed the bread to the chickens for a couple of days, but then decided that I didn’t want their diet to be so heavy on this wondrous food. Tossed the rest!
