A Not So Spooky Trip To Salem, Massachusetts

On the day before Halloween a cat named April and

a veterinarian named Amos drove to the spookiest place in America .....

Salem, Massachusetts! This is the city where the infamous Salem Witch Trials of 1692 which resulted in the hangings of nineteen innocent men and women and the tortuous death of one man who was pressed to death.  

        But don't worry, we weren't spooked at all; instead we smiled at

                        the sight of a furry and adorable yellow submarine....

                       and cheered at the sight of a serious Patriots fan.....

and we were tempted to buy everything in this amazing pet boutique! Now this is THE shop to go to for all of your cat's and dog's holiday costumes, collars, leashes, and more!

And I nearly died and went to heaven in Modern Millie's, a consignment and vintage shop where I will buy my  Mad Men office gal outfit for next Halloween.....

And we both said, "Awwwww!" at the sight of Wonder Woman!Isn't she a beauty?

And we were awestruck as we walked in Prince Poppycock's footsteps

                        and later on I hooked up with Captain Hook!

And soon after that I was in the arms of Officer Jim Dangle himself! Amos is the true Reno 911 fanatic but he wouldn't pose with the officer and I didn't mind one bit! 

By the end of the day we wished someone would push us through the streets of Salem but the little guy wouldn't share his stroller with us so we headed to our car instead. Bye-bye, Salem! We'll be back next year!
