I wanted to have another Severed Head Sunday. I thought it would happen when Steven agreed to watch The Brain That Wouldn’t Die, one of my all-time favorite cheesy movies. From there we could have gone onto a number of other features, cheesy or otherwise: Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte, Straitjacket, Sleepy Hollow (or, as I like to call it, The Headless Everybody), even Jaws has a scene with a severed head (I believe Jaws was a feature of my first Severed Head Sunday).
Then we decided to go for a walk, because I finished a letter I wanted to mail. I brought along the Tablet and took some pictures, so why not do a Sunday Stroll post? While Steven was changing his shoes, I went into the backyard and got a picture of our Black-eyed Susans that I have been wanting.
The three bushes in the background are in the neighbors’ yard.
I took two shots, thinking to use the best one, but I now I think I’ll use both.
I don’t know if you can tell, but we’ve got quite a nice batch of chives next to the Black-eyed Susans.
I had just been remarking to Steven that our spearmint seems a little out of control, so I got a shot of that, too.
I should have gotten Steven to stand next to it for perspective.
I was glad I had taken two pictures at home, because I did not find as much to shoot on our walk. However, I knew I wanted a picture of our post office, because I think it is kind of cool and historic looking.
I stood across the street so I could get the whole building.
As we walked up Main Street, I saw some flowers in front of Basloe Library which I had not taken a picture of, I don’t think. I think I only took a shot of the ones in the park next to the library.
I wish I had focused in on the big pink blooms more, but you can’t see on the Tablet really well in the sunshine.
I was glad to get back home, because it was hotter outside than I had thought. Also, I had not worn my sunglasses and the bright sunlight was bothering me. Just to piss and moan a little, so this is more of a Wrist to Forehead Sunday after all. However, my headline promised a Scattered Sunday and I began by talking about movies, so I will close with a photo I downloaded from one of my monster movie groups on Facebook.
Is it just me or does the building in the background look a little like Stone Mill at Canal Place in Little Falls?
It is a rare close up of Max Schrek in make-up as Nosferatu, who, as regular readers know, is one of my all-time favorite guys. Happy Sunday, everyone.
