He cuts the top off his pumpkin, just as the doctor Victor Frankenstein cut the top off the head of fiend –the demon Mary Shelley wrote of –known as Frankenstein. 


The top comes off the pumpkin with a sucking sound and the man grimaces at the putrid smell of pumpkin guts; as he reaches inside to clean the guts a grim laughter echoes throughout the dark house and the man trembles; he laughs at himself knowing the black night and howling wind are only tricking him into being afraid. 


Then, the pumpkin head peers up at the man and he screeches like a little girl, hiding under the table; a headless body appears and replaces and the top of the pumpkin; the body places the pumpkin on his neck where his head should be; the pumpkin transforms –eyes triangle cut-outs where fire burns and mouth open with sharp glistening teeth; the headless horsemen goes outside to do his demonic duty on ‘All Hallows’ Eve’ –the ageless creature of horror; he cuts off the head of the crying man for his first head of the night.

      Thank you PJ. I think for the most part this year, I’m going to hand-out candy and watch Simpson Halloween specials. Lol. Nothing to to fun 😉

        Hehe thank you. I think it’s fun too. We have a bunch of little kids in our neighbourhood again — I love there cute customers and painted faces 🙂 plus, we don’t get a whole lot of them (40 or 50) so they are all pleased when the receive a handful of chocolate bars (the tiny ones) and not one or two 🙂 And tree-house or horrors from the Simpsons are classic 🙂 do u handout candy or send some to your grandkids?

        No, I don’t do either. I’m a sourpus when it comes to Halloween. Haha! There really aren’t many children in my area.

        Yeah, that’s okay. Many kids go to malls these days. I guess it’s the warmer option. But not as fun, lol.

        Plus, I feel it is a lot safer for them to go to the malls. Here the schools all throw Halloween parties for the kids. I try and encourage them to go there.

        That’s a great idea for kids — schools should do that here 🙂

        It is a great idea. It keeps the kids off the streets and is much safer for the kids.
