The midweek Word Prompt over on Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC is Halloween!

In this episode, Owl teaches Mouse about Halloween, but in his unique phantasmagorical way, Mouse has the last word.

  1. Oh wow, Sue your “Owl and Mouse” Halloween storyline is both very clever and superbly entertaining…… I’m not a real fan of Halloween, because of it’s sheer commercialism to make parents spend outrageous amounts of money…….. but maybe I’ll give it a go….. I’ve been very busy with my own works the last few months and maybe I’m due for a slow down….. xxxxx….

    1. Ivor, I thank you for your lovely comments.
      I’m not a fan of Halloween either. It’s an import we could have done without. The commercialism of this night arrived over here when my children were young and is now ridiculously out of control. On the other hand, Halloween has its uses, for instance, this Owl and Mouse episode was such fun to create and I enjoyed doing it. Thank you Ivor 🙂

    1. In the 43 years of living here, we’ve never had children coming to the door. That’s the beauty of living on a country lane without street lights, it’s too scary, even for Halloween.
      We used to host Halloween children’s parties when ours were young, I preferred that to letting them loose on the streets. Thank you Andrew.

    1. Hello, Les. I’m glad you picked up on the placing of the spooks. This was a great one to play around with. Thank you, Les I appreciate your comments.

    1. Thank you very much Derrick. Pumpkin chews I like that idea. It would be over the pond if they had.
      A great idea would be Halloween chews for dogs. Some People are so taken in with commercialism they’d be out there buying them just so Pooch could join in with Halloween! Dog food firms would make a ‘killing’ !

    I don’t like Halloween…not even when I was a kid. Anyone with a mask on terrifies me!! But I lived through it when my kids were young. They loved it.

    Love this episode of Owl and Mouse, and the way the witches and ghosts keep appearing throughout. Didn’t take long for Mouse to catch on, did it?! 🤗 The color scheme you chose is perfect for the theme.

    1. Halloween was unheard of when I was a child, dressing up etc arrived on these shores when my children were little and they have continued to enjoy it ever since. My husband and I became engaged on 31st October, but Halloween meant nothing to us back then. These days I realise Halloween is on the eve of the Roman Catholic feast of All Saints’ (or All Hallows’) Day. The time to remember martyrs and saints, and apparently, originates from the 4th century. The Church of England and many other churches frown upon Halloween and the way people treat it as a celebration of witches and ghouls. Kind of makes one wonder why so many devout Christians continue to take part in Halloween if this is the way their church thinks.

      I’m glad you like the colour scheme I chose. I spent a great day having fun and playing around with the witches and spooks. Thank you so much Ginger 🙂

    Reblogged this on THE MAIN AISLE (c) 2019 and commented:
    This is a clever Halloween treat from Susan. While many folks are sitting in a pumpkin patch waiting for the return of the Great Pumpkin to return with gifts for all believers Owl and Mouse are discussing the wherefores and the whys of the day. A clever bit of Halloween wit. – gc

    1. We don’t have Thanksgiving either!😀

      I’m so glad you liked this one Carolyn, I love being creative and this Halloween prompt gave me a great opportunity to do what I enjoy doing the most. It was fun to play around with colours and ghosts and witches. As always, thank you for your lovely comments. 🙂👻👻

      1. I love Thanksgiving because it is all about gratitude. And there are no decorations, wild parties, gift buying/competing, etc., like Halloween and Christmas. It’s all about families gathering to talk, give thanks, eat, laugh, say what they’re thankful for, etc. 🙂 It’s a very warm, loving, feel-good holiday. 🙂

      2. I like Christmas, too…but it’s become too commercialized 😦 and some people get caught up in competition. We try to make it simple,, beautiful, and special…about family, Jesus, and love. 🙂

      3. I don’t enjoy the city at Christmas, I prefer to stay local and keep it personal to me. As with everything else over here, decorating the outside of houses and streets is normally very low key compared to over the pond.

        I do enjoy decorating the inside of my home but I don’t light up anything on the outside. I love the peace of christmastime, but it does make me more aware of the homeless and others who are less fortunate than us, and also very thankful for what we have. Thank you Carolyn 🙂
