November Tuesday

We've been gone for a week and missing out on visiting and updating our blog,  because our human beans went away and left son bean in charge.  Son bean does know lots about computers, but not about blogging.  Also, we had to train him to get us breakfast on time. 

Bono decided that a good nap after breakfast is very productive!

He is dreaming of menu ideas for the next meal.

While our humans were away visiting relatives, they took a trip to a local vineyard.  

These are bigger grapes than the vine in our backyard produces.   However, mombean made two small jars of grape jelly from ours.  We were proud of her efforts even though we don't like grape jelly.

When they got back, mombean went over to her sister's home.  Her sister is Tillie's mom

You can see Tillie's mombean making coffee before the two of them went out on their Ghost Walk.  They waited until nearly Halloween to go on the tour because by then it would be dark when the tour started.

They met the other beans going on the tour at the Town Clock 

They met up with about 30 other people and the storyteller too.  Off they went!  This building is one of the oldest in the city.  It is now a restaurant.

Mombean said they were told that a spirit hangs out by the salad bar.  She wasn't sure about that, but they certainly have spirits in some of their other bars.

Mombean took a few pictures of some of the old buildings they passed

Last night Mike was being helpful as usual.  He helped mombean get out the Halloween goodies to pass out at our door.

Cookie insisted that he accompany mom outside in the yard this morning.

It is a lovely, sunny day and he saw this Chickadee rush over to the bird feeder after mombean added more sunflower seeds to it.

  Cookie, however, was too busy eating blades of fresh, green grass to take much notice of it.

Mindy wants to show you the Canada Holly that grows wild in our backyard.

People collect it to make arrangements for decorating.

Is is my turn now?

Hi, it's Moe.  I just wanted to show you all my handsome face!

Your beans have been very busy! Great shot of the clock--it would have been very cool if there had been a tour IN Citadel Hill in the dark!

P.S. The mom says she's quite sure the other bars have "spirits." LOL.


Sounds like you had a great week off! We've missed all of you, and are sure glad you're back.

Hey furcousins!!!!!!!! Our beans sure like to do strange stuff and at strange times :o We like to be indoors where it is warm and cozy all the time :) However, some of us are jealous that Cookie is getting fresh grass!!!!!!!!

Nice to see all of you!! That ghost walk sounds pretty scary!! Our mom did one of those when she was in England a few years ago.

Angel Prancer Pie said...

Great pics! We luf seeing all your faces. The ghost walk sounds like fun! Purrs.

Cat said...

We're glad your back!! Nice to hear you had a fun trip :-) We have two holly bushes in our garden but I always give the branches to my mum (she doesn't have animals) because I'm afraid my guys will eat the berries. Moe you are handsome indeed!
