Nightmare On East Magnolia

Published: Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 09:08 AM.

You know, sometimes Ruth Ann didn’t exaggerate! I kicked something or somebody off of me, threw the burlap bag over the closest object that I could make out in the dark……took a last couple of swipes with my club and I vacated the premises. This year’s Halloween Carnival was going to have to limp along without Bruno.

As Mom was examining my arm I explained how the wild gremlins from another planet caught us off guard— “Well, this bite looks more like the human variety to me. And what scratched you all over the face?”

My only consolation was I didn’t look as bad at Ricky or Yogi. Some ghoulish fiend had beaten them severely about the head and shoulders! And there was some lasting satisfaction out of the nights escapade, Bruno never barked or chased us again. He did, however, sit up on the front porch and laugh his silly head off every time we went by.
