We had a quiet Halloween. We had a sprinkling of trick-or-treaters, but for the most part, our Snickers and Milky Way fun bars will go into the freezer.
As a treat, I watched a couple of old horror movies yesterday. Well, tried to, anyway. I watched Vincent Price in House on Haunted Hill, a movie I well remember from my younger days. One of the television stations used to air what they called “sci fi” movies every Saturday night at 10:30. Mom used to send Jen and me to bed at 10 (we shared not only a bedroom but a bed), and told me if I could stay awake until Jen fell asleep, I could get out of bed and watch the sci fi movie. Sometimes I stayed awake; sometimes I didn’t. But House on Haunted Hill was one I remember watching and being totally terrified! My observation yesterday was that it really would have been kind of scary except that the special effects were, well, not very special.
Next, however, I tried to watch the original NIght of the Living Dead. It was a no-go, my friends. In broad daylight it scared the pants off of me.
Anyway, here is a snapshot of some Halloween goblins….
Have a great weekend.
