I’m back to work on the Wing Slayers and loving it even if my writing time is limited lately!
For all those who participate, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! This year it totally snuck (Wrong tense? Is snuck even a word? Can you all tell I’ve been working long hours today and totally wiped out?) up on me. For fun, I thought we’d have a little Halloween Costume Contest. I asked the Wing Slayer Hunters if they’d model for us, but they pitched a total fit about having to put on costumes.
MEN! Such whiners.
But then I found volunteers totally willing to model costumes! Okay, up first is Candidate Number 1 modeling a very trendy Halloween Hat but he’s sad as no one is giving him treats. I’m on it, heading to my cupboard right now to get him a super yummy bacon treat. I think he deserves at least two treats for rocking this hat!
“Wait!” Phoenix yells out. “No one told me there’d be bacon!”
“Too late, dude. You had your chance. The bacon treats are all for the models!” Okay, so where was I? Oh yeah, Candidate number 2: He happily volunteered to be a witch or wizard, but I think he tricked the cat into getting into the cauldron. Hmm, do we deduct points for meanness? Or add points for out-smarting a cat since that doesn’t happen very often?
And now for Candidate number 3. This guy has just been waiting for an excuse to wear his spiffy new tux. But he got so tired putting it on, he had to take a nap. Not only is he styling his tux, but he’s totally got the whole nap thing mastered.
“I have a tux. Hell I have four tuxes.” Linc shouted out. “I could have modeled a tux. Do you have any more bacon?”
Ignore Linc. He’s just mad because Candidate Number 3 wears a tux better than him. Linc is a little vain. Let’s move onto Candidate Number 4: This little guy is super cool as Devil Dog. He could steal my heart any day, what about yours?
So there you have it, our four Halloween Costume Contest Candidates. Who is your choice of a winner?
Hope you all have a great Halloween and a terrific weekend!

Oh Jenn they’re SO cute. All of them are winners – I can’t pick one :).
We may get one goblin this year. A little girl moved in on our road this summer. But our houses are so far apart that we haven’t had any kids come by in years. Hubs has his fingers crossed that this little person will come by with her parents for a treat :).
You have a Happy Halloween too!

ROFL… great post! I love all the puptarts (and the kitty!). But the first one… I could eat him up, he’s so cute. Oh man, I miss having a dog.
Snuck is totally a word – no matter what spellchecker says. The Merriam-Webster site totally agrees: “past and past participle of sneak”. So there. =op
Now go make those whining WingSlayers dance for you. And Happy Halloween!

Ahh #3 is totally adorable!
But tell Linc I’ll give him bacon if he comes over…sans tux! *grins evilly*
We don’t get trick or treaters either, B.E. Sometimes it sucks living in rural areas.
Get to writing, Jen! I want more WS!

Viki, I’m with you, I can’t really pick one, but I do think the min pin (#4) is very handsome.
Hope you get a visit from the little goblin! The kids are so cute in their costumes. I saw a little witch walking to school this morning. Or maybe she was something other than a witch, but she was sure cute.
How’s Pee Wee doing? At least he has a family taking very good care of him, that counts for a lot.

B.E., that first guys express totally gets me! I want to pet him and give him treats.
And thank you on “snuck” it just looked wrong. I confound spell check all the time though, it’s a hobby of mine.
Have a great Halloween!

Ashlynn, that third one cracks me up. He’s like Corky (CPA Boy’s dog), a totally kickback pup.
I’m trying to write, so much time is spent on the business end these days, but I’m not complaining…much
