Day of the Dead - 2009

Saturday we attended the Day of the Dead in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood. I love going to this event. The altars paying their respects to loved ones is truly amazing. (Oh by the way, it wasn't a full moon that night. That's a large paper lantern that is representing a full moon.)

Many of the altars depict themes of love and marriage; couples that stayed together until they passed away.

Other altars paid homage to people's passions in life.  This young girl loved music and made all the paper mache skeltons playing their instruments.  

Altars for the famous


Here's another example of just how elaborate these altars can be

and even how simple they can be

Talker's Paws

These are Talker's paws--at this moment--quiet; tentative; relax and most of all in a state of waiting.  He always seems to be waiting for MY next move. It proves to be difficult when it's my day off because it's never a day off for him since he's always ready for the first opportunity to put those quiet, tentative, relax paws outside for a good walk.

Fall is Here!

Fall is here! What better place to find it than in your own backyard. This is Savannah in the pumpkin patch.

How long can such beauty last when it is just  barely hanging from a vine?
