Popcorn Balls & Pigeons

I didn't need to get all upset worrying about hoards of human children coming to my house on Halloween. We only had 4 kids and they all came at once and they were all my mom's niece's children. Those kids are ok because they have 3 small dawgs and know not to get all up in my face. They leave me alone until I'm ready to talk to them.
My mom got a popcorn ball from the neighbors around the corner that she has been trick-or-treating with since she was a little girl! Mrs. Culver says she has to keep making the popcorn balls because there are still people who come there specially on Halloween just for them (my mom being one of them!) Doesn't it look good? My mom ate it right up and only gave me the crumbs that fell off while she was scoffing it down. Hmpf!This morning my mom looked outside and saw a pigeon in our back yard! What?! We don't live in a city, there are no pigeons hanging around in parks eating bread crumbs here like in the movies. Where the heck did that pigeon come from. Did he hitch a ride out to the Hamptons on the Long Island Rail Road or on someone's car and decide to become a beach bum pigeon?? He flew away when my mom got about 10' away from him. I wonder if he'll come see us again...

Do you think the pigeon arrived from my Big World? I wonder if he is my friend.
I don't think I like popcorn balls. Do you?

You had a date with Coco?
Man oh man I'm so happy for you.
Why didn't you tell us more about it?

Pedro said...


I'm telling you, my mom ate that popcorn ball so fast I hardly even knew it was there and Ziggy didn't even have time to drool!


Rambo said...

I am still having breathing attacks. I think I might have asthma! MM is doing a little better.
Thanks for thinking about us!

I think LS is rather fascinated by the popcorn ball. She kept going back to look at the picture. Gee too bad you only got crumbs. Hey, love your costume though!
