Fangs...

...are in...at least around our house.  That's my daughter Sarah sporting her new eye teeth, just in time for All Hallow's Eve.  Thankfully they're removable...also pretty believable.  Do not wear shirts without a protective collar for the next few days.

Sarah's not the only one preparing for the big day...

...busy putting together treat boxes for the trick or treaters...a gospel tract, candy and a "crackerjack" type prize included...

...we enlisted the help of former blues harp legend Elwood Bones and his faithful dog to guard the booty until All Hallows Eve...

...plus we have the Tree Creature standing by to help just in case...

...we're flying the Jolly Roger to let folks know we're taking no prisoners...

So we're getting close...they're predicting 60 degrees and dry for October 31 so we may break 100 again for the first time in several years.

This weekend we watched my favorite Halloween movie, Young Frankenstein...the Mel Brooks / Gene Wilder classic from 1974.  It is the definitive spoof of the horror movie genre for pretty much all horror films made up through 1950...but focusing of course on THE classic, Frankenstein.

My favorite scene in the film is where Wilder, as the grandson of the original mad scientist Victor Frankenstein, is out in the thunderstorm summoning the forces of nature...

 to reanimate his creature (played brilliantly by Peter Boyle)...

Every time I watch this film I laugh at the sight of Wilder's crazed command that the forces of the universe "give my creature....LLLLIIIIFFFEEE!!!!"

So much fun.

Later, mcm fans...
