There are a lot of scary things going on these days, and I'm not talking about the ghost and goblins wandering around and attending parties or trick-or-treating.
We've got government takeover of auto industries, banks, insurance companies and - if they are successful - the entire health care industry. We have unelected/unconfirmed individuals in government deciding how much people will be paid and who will get what in bankruptcy settlements as well as what kinds of vehicles Americans want to buy. And they're on the way to telling us what kind of medical coverage we need, how much doctors will be paid to provide it to us and how much we'll be taxed so 'everyone' can have 'everything' for 'free.'
But in spite of all these things, I'm going to focus on handing out candy to kids - and yes, with hubby doing some work for Hershey, it will be KitKats and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (our favs) ... along with Smarties, because they don't melt...and a package of candy corn to keep us company while the kids come and go...
And then tonight, it's up to the SandBar for their end-of-the-year blowout Halloween party ... in costume of course.
So with more than enough real things to scare us, I'm going divert my attention to the more fun things in life. Here are some quotes to get you in the mood for a day of creepiness and hauntings. Enjoy!!!!
"'Tis now the very witching time of night, when churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out contagion to this world." ~ William Shakespeare
"One need not be a chamber to be haunted. One need not be a house. The brain has corridors surpassing material place." ~ Emily Dickinson
"Listen to them: the children of the night. What sweet music they make." ~ Vlad Dracula(Dracula)
“It's as much fun to scare as to be scared.” ~ Vincent Price
"Once the door is locked, there is no way out. The windows have bars a jail would be proud of, and the only door to the outside locks like a vault." ~ The House on Haunted Hill
"Darkness Falls Across The Land
The Midnite Hour Is Close At Hand
Creatures Crawl In Search Of Blood
To Terrorize Y'awl's Neighbourhood
And Whosoever Shall Be Found
Without The Soul For Getting Down
Must Stand And Face The Hounds Of Hell
And Rot Inside A Corpse's Shell
The Foulest Stench Is In The Air
The Funk Of Forty Thousand Years
And Grizzy Ghouls From Every Tomb
Are Closing In To Seal Your Doom
And Though You Fight To Stay Alive
Your Body Starts To Shiver
For No Mere Mortal Can Resist
The Evil Of The Thriller"
~ Vincent Price in Michael Jackson's Thriller
"She just goes a little mad sometimes. We all go a little mad sometimes. Haven't you?" ~ Psycho
