Fee, fie, foe, fum! ... scawy Halloween to you all.
That is pretty scary!
Reminds me of a TV show I used watch all the time as a kid.
Do any of you remember a show called "Land of the Giants"?
Yeah, I remember that show. You're right, it reminds me of that too. Cool picture Harmon! RM
Sorry, I was a kid before television.
So the closest you got to "Land of the Giants" (as a kid) was when Dorothy went to Munchkin Land?
If my math is correct Harmon, you were 5 years old when that movie came out...
huh? Too right.
You have to figure in my December birthday, when I was four my mom and dad dumped me at the curb outside the Fox Theatre building in Abilene, Texas, to see Wizard of Oz.
I got in for a dime.
I did just fine until the witch started to melt. I freaked and split and, at age four, ran across town to the Abilene Hotel on the south side of the tracks.* That would be a two-miler through downtown Abilene for a four-year-old in imagined distress. Picture that nowadays.
That might have been my parent's first clue that it was going to be hard to ditch me. Gotta hand it to them, they kept trying until they booted me out at age seventeen the day following my high-school graduation. Guess I showed them.
Good thing that I was still working at the Greek chicken ranch so's I had an income. Feed sacks ain't all that bad t' sleep on by the way as long as the danged rats keep to themselves.
To this day I can't stand green people that melt. Still wondering how that darned movie came out.
Thanks for reminding me.
* South side of the tracks meant something in Abilene, as in not the ritzy district.
