    Yo Kitties,
    Happy Halloween! Our most exciting night of the year. We are going to PARTY in the California DUNES and Emma is hosting. This party is in special memory of our dear Tess, who loved to party in the Dunes. We'll parasail, race the dunebuggies, sing and dance, hunt and feast, have a costume parade (prizes for the best costumes), and, best of all, have our Circle of Remembrance. Halloween is the night when the veil between the heavenly realm and the earthly realm is the thinnest. You all will be able to see, hear, and talk with your GA brothers, sisters, pals, and special friends. Our newest GAs--Tess, Autumn, and Tennessee--will really want to see their L&LL friends. Don't miss this party! Since Emma will be busy hosting, Vanessa will drive the L&LL Magic Kitty Bus and Bug and Lola will have their pizza oven going full time for snacks on the bus ride. Black cats have the option of arriving on witches' brooms, but don't be late!
    Here's the "traditional" menu for our feast:

    Appetizers: Witches' Microbrews; Double-trouble Niptinis; Green Grog; Deviled Black Duck Eggs; Mousefoot Salsa on Nip Crackers; Spicy Pumpkin Seeds; Desert Lizard Legs in Bubbling Cauldron Cheese Dip.
    Entrees: Baked Rats in Puff Pastry; Howling Buffalo Wings; Brunswick Stew; Crunchy Tarantula Tacos; Ghoulish Goulash; Eyes of Newt; Pumpkin Casserole with Turkey-gizzard Garnish.
    Salads: Tossed Witches' Broom; Cactus Compote.
    Desserts: Jack-O-Lantern Cake; Cimmamum Cobweb Cookies; Black Cheesecakes (made by black cats); Pumpkin Bars

    Kitchen Krew: let's get going. Lots to do!
    ~ Chef Rusty (look for The Laird!)

    As Rusty and Ella mentioned, tonight is the one special night when we acknowledged those kitties who have left on their last adventure -- to cross the Rainbow Bridge. While they will never be forgotten by their loving caregivers, they hold a very special place in many of our hearts. I've included the names of these kitties beans (and in some cases, their screen names). It is always sad to see the list of those who are now our Guardian Angels.

    In memoriam:

    Raja - Pat
    J.D. - Dyana
    DC - Noreen
    Grayson - Lu-Ann
    Calley - Kristin
    Tomcat - Kelly
    Dude - Emmy
    Talbot - Melinda
    Tawny - Desi (of DD & Tinkerbell)
    Booger - Jennifer
    Cobb - Suzanne (cobbsmom)
    Tiki - Tonya
    Wonton - Carolyn
    Fayaway - Alxe
    Shadow B - Hellen (Shadowsmom)
    Ruby - Amy (aroseboom)
    Huey - Nancy
    Scooter - Linda
    Milo - Meredith (milosmummy)
    Blackie - Angela
    Zoey - Rose
    Eegie - Stephanie (sgans)
    Bailey - Diane
    Clyde - Will (fun2doimpossible)
    Tiggy - Wendy
    Jupiter - Jamie
    Cleo - Jane
    Shadow - Rhiannon

    Simon - Georgia
    Keiko - Maria (KeikosHuman)
    Boops - Erin
    Binks - Celi
    Leo - Tracy
    Bailey - Wendy
    Chloe - Pennie
    Doodle - Jennifer
    Pepper - Pjstroop (Paula)
    Sabrina - (milfordcollector) Cindy
    Tess - Ann (DH = John)
    Autumn - (MommaofMuse) Mel
    Tennessee - Andrea
    Zoe - Sherry
    Oreo - Jen
    Alex - Jill
    Jazzy - Libby
    Kris Kringle - Libby

    My heartfelt apologies if I've missed anyone.

    @Sherry & Zoe - I'm so sorry Sherry. I've included Zoe in the list above.

    Lyresa has been having internet problems. She asked that I post his for her:

    Yo Sir Rusty! Another year has passed but we still remember last year's party! We were lucky this year - no one crossed over the whole year! We still miss all our brudders and sisters that are waiting there though, 'specially KT, my extra sweet brudder. Mama still hasn't erased his last set of numbers. We've missed being on fdmb lately but thanks to a couple of L&LL Angels, I WILL be back soon!!! See you tonite! We thank Auntie Sienne and Gabby for helping us post this message. -signed, Dakota and Lyresa (aka Squeaky)

    God, it hurt to see J.D.'s name listed there. I couldn't open my eyes as the tears were just flowing. It's been almost a year now. The longest year. I am still having sadness sometimes missing J.D. And that was just a lot to see :(

    I have been planning to make a post in The Supply Closet for months and months and months and just haven't ...faced it... yet. Today, I will. If anyone knows someone who could use some testing supplies, let them know.

    I'm sure Ginger will be so happy to go to The Party. Thanks for having it.

    Thank you for remembering my sweet Simon. It has been 3 1/2 months since he has reached the rainbow bridge and I miss him every day. We here at FDMB have such a strong connection with our sugar babies so it makes it that much harder when they are gone. But I am so happy I was able to spend so many years with my Simon. And now he is in good company with all the other GA kitties.
    Sorry I have been away but I know you guys understand.

    It is tough for us to see the length of this yearly list of the kitties who have become Guardian Angels since the last Halloween. But in remembering them we pay tribute to the great joy they brought into our lives, and that helps us to heal.

    It was a Happy Halloween!

    @Ella & Rusty & Stu(GA) That it was! This is such a bittersweet condo, as it is every year. I miss them all, our GA's, but take joy knowing that they are all well, happy and being just awesome furkids.

    Happy Halloween everyone, one day later. The kitty bus has just pulled into the driveway, looks like all the kitties made it home safely. Vanessa, looks no worse for wear, Lola is muttering "what a night" and Bug is grinning ear to ear.... and no one is talking. Yupp, a great Halloween indeed!

    Yo Kitties,
    I hope everyone got home safely--by bus (thanks for driving, Vanessa) or by broomstick. What a fantastic party! The Hide and Seek in the DUNES was great fun. With everyone in costume it was double fun. Polly led the lizard hunt so we could make the cauldron cheese dip. And Tillie brought in lots of mousies for the mousefoot stew. The parasailing was thrilling, especially when China took off wearing her witch's cape. Boy, was that ever scary! Those green jello shots worked some mischief (thank you, Gracie and Jenks!): Vyktor won the dune buggy race (even though he did crash into the pizza oven). Dancin' to the songs of the Blue Mannie Group was great. And a gigantic sand castle in the shape of Dracula's castle was carved into one of the dunes. Cinco found a pothole in the desert so he could practice his water-rescue technique (all who decided to surf were safe, thanks to Deputy Cinco). Neko wanted to go kayaking in the pothole but she forgot to bring a paddle (too many niptinis, perhaps?).

    But the highlight of the party was our Circle of Remembrance. We could see and hear and talk to our beloved GAs through the thin veil. They were partying, too. What a happy time we all had!

    Thank you, Emma, for hosting this terrific party. Tess was smiling!

    Yo Emma,
    Of course you may come to all of the parties. And not just because you're driving the Magic L&LL Kitty Bus! You were a purrfect host. I'm so glad you and Tess got to see each other and talk.
    See you at the next Full Moon party (Nov. 25th, the Full Beaver Moon).

    Hi Ann, Yes, that is a long list this year.
    Great pic of Tess in her mermaid costume. She really knew how to shine!
