(Grants World) Halloween started for grant days before the trick or treating started I decided to take him to the pumpkin patch at first, he was a bit impatient as I set up the cameras.

Grant kept popping his head out the window to see what was taking me so long he was wearing his brother Sprites Halloween tie proudly.

He never seen pumpkins before, so I left up to him to pick out a good pumpkin and he did he seemed to like the white pumpkin better then the orange ones, go figure ha
He really enjoyed the pumpkin patch, but I decided to bring him back tomorrow except this time with his mommy, so she could ride on the hayride with grant. after the pumpkin patch grant and I cruised the neighborhood while he hung out the window looking at Halloween decorations

The next day Grant and I took his mommy to the pumpkin patch to ride the tractor hayride and surprisingly he and his mommy thoroughly enjoyed the ride
We wanted granted to experience the full Halloween experience, so we took him to the best haunted house in the city.

I took a lot of time and gave it a lot of thought when I built grants world studio no detail was overlooked.

We have multiple cameras and proper lighting that brings Grants Studio to life, I think the hardest part I built was the roof it took 1200 doll house shingles to complete, over the 8 weeks of construction grant was there overseeing the job, as each piece was completed he was there to inspect it.

The first piece of the puzzle laid was the grass then the house then his front door, on his front door is his mom and dad and in the other photo on the door is Grants 2 sisters and 3 brothers, the inside of his house has a fireplace and baby photos of and his brother sprite, the letters on the face of grants place was all hand painted and has multiple milk bones all over it and the arch is adorn with a special treat and his chimney stack is brick.

Grants porch pad was made by longtime friend Joyce she spent a lot of time drawing the pad painting it and then she sealed it with acrylic resin she also drew the inside fireplace back drop and inserted the mini photos of grant and sprite, and mat did all the graphics for grant world grant thanks both of you for all your hard work on this project.

I had a special fire hydrant memorial made for Sprite and then there is his daily newspaper the doggy News he has his own fenced in yard with a special tree stump picnic table he eats off of the foundation of the house is also brick and the colors chosen for the house were my friend johns recommendations turned out pretty good and the murals that surround grants world really bring it to life and if there is mail in his box this means there are comments on YouTube that need to be answered about grant. The address we choose is Sprites birthday, and then there is his toy box that is full already I hope you enjoyed the tour of the Grants world studio.

Sunday morning November 15th I will be releasing the first Grants World Video Episode 1 Love at First Sight, one will follow every Sunday.

Over the past couple of months I have been working on a video series for kids and adults called Grants World 2020, its about a baby Cocker Spaniel named Grant, I document his life’s successes and failures it is filmed from his perspective, adults and children alike will love Grants World because its real life playing out before your eyes.

Several months ago, I lost my dog Sprite, and he was my balance and the loss of him made for very tough times this past year on the streets. So, I went out and got another Cocker Spaniel he was 8 weeks old when we brought him home and that is when grants world popped in my head and was created. Grant and Grants World are the balance I need to continue doing Bloody Chicago videos, and I will continue.

The reason I created Grants World is because of what took place this summer in Chicago all the deaths of teens and children were very tragic, and because of them I decided to create something good and positive for a change. When you watch these videos they will make you happy and make you laugh and some of them have learning lessons for the kids and I think the kids of Chicago and across this country deserve some happiness,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, I hope you enjoy the ongoing and ever evolving series called Grants World 2020.
