Spooky Saturday

We thought about not doing this post when we logged into the cat blogosphere and saw all of the pictures and purrs for Miss Peach. Instead, we thought of simply posting the picture that we placed in our sidebar (we got it from the Cat Blogosphere - we hope no one minds that we took it - we just had to do something for Miss Peach) and foregoing our Halloween post for today. Then Mommy said, "I think Miss Peach knows that we love her and purr a lot for her. I think that maybe your Halloween post will help other kitties to think of different things for a time so that they can rejuvenate and purr even HARDER for Miss Peach." We agree with Mommy so we are posting.

We are posting about Mommy and Daddy's Halloween adventure last night. We live in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA. Last night, Mommy and Daddy went to Historic Oakland Cemetery for their Capture the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours. To find out more about this very historic cemetery in downtown Atlanta that was built in 1851, please visit here.

The Capture the Spirit of Oakland Tour was a lot of fun. The Historic Oakland Foundation put together the whole thing, and all money raised for admission went toward the preservation and beautification of the cemetery. The Tours walked groups through the cemetery at night (under a full moon no less) and introduced you to 6 spirits who when living were prominent figures in Atlanta. Five of those people are buried at Oakland, and one - Father O'Reily who helped preserve Atlanta's churces during the Civil War, visited just to let visitors know of his deeds while living.

The one spirit Mommy looked forward to meeting the most was Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone With The Wind (Hendrix - tell your Mommy our Mommy thought so hard of you guys when she met her)! Ms. Mitchell is one of Mommy's favorite authors and look! Mommy even got a picture of her! See? She was telling Mommy all about her life and how she lived when she wrote Gone With The Wind.

Mommy and Daddy had lots of fun and didn't get home til after lots and lots of sleeps. Mommy said the best thing about the adventure, was getting to go with lots of our friends. Aunt Susan (remember she is our V-E-T and rescued Dante too!) and Uncle Dave even went too! Friends mean a lot and we cherish every one of our new friends that we have made since we starting blogging. We love you all! Feel better Miss Peach!!

Wow--that is very spooky! Momma doesn't let me go out when it's dark, so I've never seen anything like that before.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

My mommy is freaking out! That is so cool! We remembers the sad mention of Oakland Cemetary in the book Gone With the Wind and you got to go there and "meet" Margaret Mitchell! "the endless rows of graves at Oakland Cemetary stretched longer every day..."

What a great Halloween Event! We're going to the Oakland Cemetary site right now!
