It's Halloweenie!

On the way home yesterday, DH and I came upon a murder of crows. I couldn't get over the number of them! It really was an eyrie sight. They had all descended on this one particular house. It kind of reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock's popular movie, The Birds.

I've always been a fan of horror movies. I have no idea why. Halloween, with Jamie Lee Curtis, was one of the first ones I ever saw when I was growing up. Friday the 13th, with the popular maniac Jason, was next and shortly followed by A Nightmare On Elm Street with my good old pal, Freddy Krueger :o) Yes, I had a poster of Freddy on my wall as I was growing up. Maybe that accounts for my twisted mind ;o)

How many of you are scared after watching a horror movie? I don't think it was so much the blood and gore that got to me. I would have to say it was the 'music'. Each one of those horror films has its own unique and frightening tune, enough to send shivers up your spine. I wonder how they come up with these things.

For those of you who were reading my Blog last year, you might remember that Brie dressed up as a vampire :o) Well this year she's decked out in John Deere -

Pickles was a better model but he had his limits. He was also bribed with a carrot ;o)

LOl too funny.

I love horror movies too and I'd definitely say it's the music that adds to the scarey bits, BUT I saw a horror without ANY music to warn you of the scarey bits happening and that was the most horrifying horror I've ever seen!

Hope you get only treats - no tricks!

Cathey, Brie is sooo cute. Love that costume. What a good girl she is. My little Sparky has an absolute fit when I try to dress him up. I love that picture, give Brie a kiss for me.
