The graveyard

really does belong to Hal - Short for "Halloween Cat".

For those who have not been following the blog for long...here is the short version, about three years ago when we were working on Halloween decorations out in the shop this tuxedo cat showed up and stared sleeping by the fire. Yes, we build props by the fire....very cool.

Anyway, he went through several names, a couple of them not so nice since he had penitent for treating the tombstones like scratching posts. But by mid November I get a call from husband that it is too cold outside and now "the cat" is in the house.

So, "stray cat" became Halloween cat.

We just call him Hal now, and because of his great way with people, he has become the official mascot of the yard. If you come by during the season you will find him sitting on the props, watching the yard....actually more like waiting for someone to take his picture.

So, when there was a wedding in the yard, he had to supervise. I love this picture. It sums up Hal perfectly.

I can hear him thinking "What are these people doing in my yard....and who let them bring a dog?!?"

Then of course, he had to check out the wedding cake :D
