I Vant To Bite Your Finger

Spooktacular Greetings!

I happened to stumble across this hilarious toy commercial (is 1981 considered 'vintage' :) and thought it fit in quite nicely with today's theme. Have any of you ever owned or played with this one?

Halloween is my favourite holiday and the past two weeks I've been very happily overdosing on horror movies: The Exorcist, Christine, Cujo, An American Werewolf in London, Friday the 13th, Aliens (including Aliens vs. Predators), The Shining, Chucky and Dead Silence (evil ventriloquist dummies - yikes!) to name a few. I seem to find the eerie, the spooky, and the downright terrifying almost cozy this time of the year.

Isn't this used 1890s Vampire Hunting Kit frightfully interesting? Included is a crucifix, stake, mallet, hatchet, German stamped letter to the mother of deceased victim, signed new testament bible by hunter Andrew Kauffman along with picture of victim, pliers, Remington derringer pistol, rosary, syringe, garlic extract, sulphur, hair from destroyed vampire, pulled fangs of destroyed vampire & holy oil. One can never be too prepared...

Happy Haunting!

Delicious autumn!  
My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.  ~George Eliot

Here are a few shots from when we were in Nelson, BC the last week of September.

I love summer, but fall has to be the prettiest season of all.
