WHOO HOO!! and Agatha is going to make a vat of clam chowda( she uses Senator Kennedy's mother's Roses recipe,and it is delish!!) We may also make some Joe Froggers( those are cookies that originated in Marblehead (one town over from Salem) and of course Archie will whip up a pot of his favorite Boston Baked Beans .Tanner and Joe and Ruby will love those ,get it!!) Bring your own air freshener! Now about Salem..........( put your paws over your eyes Scruff and Arch)........
Now surely all you pups and hammies know that Salem's biggest claim to fame is the hanging of witches that were here in 1692......... This is a picture of Gallows Hill with a list of those that were hung...

In fact here is the gravestone of one of them.......

And to this day Salem still has many witches in town including Lori Cabot the official witch of Salem who has her own little shop in town....( Lacie you can get love potions there....)

There is a Witch House(which was the home of Judge Corwin who presided over some of the witch trials ....

SOunds like the pawty of the year! Can't wait to get to Massa chews its to hang out with you guys. Thanks for doing all of the planning, by the way.

You know, Agatha, you really should take Archie to all the locales a couple of times during the day and some at night to desensitize him to all the spookiness. Maybe he can up his spook tolerance before the party.

Goober love,

Ooooo, that witch is kinda scary! I think I might spend the evening of the pawty with my paws over my eyes too! J x

Molly the Airedale said...

Oh man after reading this post, I started shivering in fear. This Salem sounds soooo scawie! I hope nothing bad will happen to any of us. I don't wanna be possessed by any of those ghosts that are in Salem now... I think there are a lot of them there! I hope I will survive when I'm there celebrating my barkday with others. By the way, after celebrating my barkday there, I will have to leave very early in the morning again to celebrate my birthday the 2nd time in my country at the training grounds. It will be very tiring I know...

Love licks,

Yeah the lobster and clam chowder sounds fab but what's with the festival of the dead. I read that out loud and Tess & Willow took off out the room. Hee hee, they've got the jitters already.
This pawty is going to be fantastic. You two are going to a lot of trouble with the organising. Good stuff!!

Gus said...

the many Bs said...

Hey A&A, Salem sounds like such an interesting place, but kind of scary too. since we live on the west coast we our mom doesn't tell us about that kind of stuff. i guess she thinks it's too far away. we would lovelovelovelove to visit Salem in person and sniff all of those witch ghosts. is it spooky though? 'cuz Bailey is kind of scared of ghosts and Benson is just a little twerp and is sometimes a little scared of the dark.

Bogart H. Devil said...

My mama used to live in Boston (she LOVED it there) and she was telling me about Salem and how spooky and wonderful it is :)


Joe Stains said...

Lenny said...

It sounds like we might have to put our paws over our noses rather than our eyes, with all those beans! I won't be scared as long as there are no loud noises.

My mom is soooooo jealous because lobstah and clam chowdah are her favorites.

Your friend, Lenny
