Snail Mail to Cinema Saturday

I am still not up to having Mohawk Valley Adventures, so no Scattered Saturday Post. However, my husband, Steven, suggested I write a few lines about the Creature from the Black Lagoon. I did not italicize it, because I mean the character not the movie.

I saw on Facebook that Ricou Browning, the actor that played the Creature, was not doing very well, and his family was asking for cards or letters to cheer him up. Snail mail is right up my alley! When I was writing my usual Saturday morning post cards to my post card peeps, I included one for Mr. Browning.

Later on, when we got to the movie watching portion of the day, we found that we had on DVR the episode of Svengoolie when he showed Revenge of the Creature. Perfect!

I need a rubber chicken.

After the Creature, we stuck with Svengoolie and watched Tarantula. As regular readers may remember, we DVR Svengoolie every week so have a few episodes to spare.

I forgot I had this in my Media Library.

After the giant spider was dispatched (should I have included a Spoiler Alert? My bad), we stuck with our DVR with Mad Love, which we recorded from TCM.

It is delightfully creepy.

Also on our DVR were a few episodes of Columbo from the sadly brief time that MeTV showed them (here’s a Fruedian autocorrect: MeTV became Meth. A commentary on the addictive nature of television?). We love Columbo.

Peter Falk is so cool.

It seems I have segued into a Saturday Cinema Post. Well, why not? I am over 250 words and included pictures. I call that a respectable post. Happy Saturday, everyone!

I’m Terrified of Missing a Blog Post

Is it ever Tired Tuesday! What the hell, me? Never mind, just make a blog post. Can I make a Monstrous Monday Post on Tuesday? Maybe call it Terrifying Tuesday? I’ll work on the title. First I’ll look for monster pictures.

It’s scary!

How about Tarantula Tuesday? I remember watching this movie, but I cannot remember much about it. I do not have any kind of phobia or squeamishness about spiders, so it would not automatically be terrifying for me. Still, a spider that big would tend to be a problem.

Who wouldn’t be terrified by a movie called The Terror with Boris Karloff? Oh well, I guess not everyone. I do like this movie (I once wrote a blog post about it). I have another poster of it in my Media Library but an too tired to search for it. I tried to make that poster bigger but am quite inept at these things. I did find a picture of Nicholson and Karloff, though.

A dramatic moment.

Oh dear, I am not up to 200 words yet. I am tired and out of T’s. Is a short blog post is better than no blog post at all? I’ll try for something better tomorrow. Then again, tomorrow is Wuss-out Wednesday. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.

(Ooh, I did make it to 200 words!)
