Scary story time...


The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving; The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow Page 18
On mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveller in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless! but his horror was still more increased on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of his saddle! His terror rose to desperation...

Wish you a wonderful(and scary) Halloween.....

I always love this story this time of the year! As a child it was the least frightening and yet the most exciting of the stories told during this season. Unless you want to count Casper the Friendly Ghost. His antics always made him even more lovable and then we could share this fun as family, you know popcorn, and sodas in front of the TV. Thank you.
