Hollow's Eve......!

I'll be off to my quilting retreat early morning!

Sadly I will miss the trick or treater! Stephen will do the rounds with our daughter! He's a single dad this weekend. ;o)

I love Halloween. Perhaps I'm dating myself, but the Rocky Horror Picture Show was very popular when I was a younger person. On Halloween weekend/night, certain movie theaters in Montreal would have a midnight showing. People would dress up as their favourite character. It's quite the entertainment that's difficult to put into words. It's an event that must be experienced live! Many of the groupies have seen the movie a hundred times if not more. They know the parts by heart. Myself, I can count on my fingers the number of times I've seen the movie. I've come to find out that Stephen was a Rocky Horror Picture Show groupie.

Yep, I've got proof! lol

He's probably seen the movie at least 50 times! I guess it was popular in the outskirts of New York City.

My mother in law showed up with the vest a few years back. She found it while packing to move to Massachusetts. Nice find mom! lol

You know, there's a certain comfort in knowing that my sweety chose the character Eddie over Frank-N-Furter. LOL

So, I will leave you with one of my favourite clip from the movie. It's a great party dancing song!

It's astounding, time is fleeting .....

Myself, I'll be in another dimension with quilting intentions well secluded, I quilt! With a bit of a mind flip, you're into the time slip and nothing can ever be the same.......! lol Quilting retreat here I come!

Have a Happy Halloween! BOOOO!

Aah yes, "let's do the time warp again"! This movie was also a part of our (me and DH) growing up. I think I'll tell him to pull out our copy of the movie and watch it tonight.
Hope you take tons of pics and get tons done at the retreat. Have fun!
