The Still Long-Lost Great Plastic Pumpkin

 When we moved from our Minneapolis townhome to the Colorado mountains, one of the sad casualties of the move was our Great Plastic Pumpkin. And would you believe we've not been able to find another??? least another big enough for you-know-who, a.k.a. Waffles. So in honor of our long lost plastic pumpkin, we hope you enjoy the original post starring our sweet and sarcastic Katie. We sure do miss her dry wit! 

WAFFLES:  Look, Boss! The Great Pumpkin... it's really REAL!

KATIE:  Sorry, Waffles... there's nothing great about that. It's just a plastic pumpkin.

WAFFLES:  But it's HUGE, Boss. Can't you see?


KATIE:  Well if it can make you disappear, it must have some kind of magical powers.

KATIE:  Waffles???

KATIE:  Waffles?! Where'd you go? Waffles???

KATIE:  Well who'd have ever thought that Halloween would be my new favorite holiday?

A few Octobers ago, when Glogirly came home with the big plastic pumpkin, it took Waffles all of 10 seconds to dive inside and hunker down. Katie has never been a fan of enclosed spaces, especially enclosed spaces inside giant orange plastic pumpkins. But when Waffles looked like he'd never come out, she became very curious. We're certain she had no plans on joining him, but more likely was peering over the edge hoping for a little of that Great Pumpkin disappearing magic. 

Eventually, the treats came out and it turned into a big free-for-all. 

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss!  I got a catnip Greenie! What'd you get? Did you get something good?

KATIE:  Freeze-dried chicken. 

WAFFLES:  We should totally trade.

KATIE:  In your dreams, Waffles. That's like trading a Reeses for a circus peanut. 


  1. That's a great pumpkin. Love seeing these two.

  2. What a great flashback! And we're so sad about your great pumpkin!

  3. I love this post, so good to see Katie again - we miss her dry wit too.

  4. Angel Katie was wondering, 'where'd he go?'

  5. A wonderful blast from the past. What is it with cats and enclosed spaces? XD

  6. Hee hee. Too bad the magical pumpkin hasn't reappeared to see it would still work.

  7. Gee, I will tell mum to be on watch for a large pumpkin.
