Halloween in England

Good ol’ 39 Pontiac Dreamer, one of my regular readers, is as big a fan of Halloween as I am.  To that end, he e-mailed me a TON of Halloween pictures over the weekend, including his and his wife’s Jack O’Lanterns.  He says hers is the more elaborate one, while he goes for a simpler, more classic approach (like me).

Per Ponty:

We had a few trick or treaters over the evening but, thankfully, not at a crucial point in any of our films…. The films in the pictures by the way are Ringu and the Romero classic Dawn of the Dead.

Ponty also sent me some excellent photographs of an English sunrise—in September!  I’ve been so slammed, I keep forgetting to upload them.  Look for those next Tuesday.

For now, here are the pictures of Ponty’s British Halloween:

Thanks, Ponty—and apologies for taking so long to get these and the sunrise pictures up.

Happy Belated Halloween!

    The image where you say ‘not sure what this is but it looks scary’ is a collection of ornaments – Moroccan style candle holder and pyramid storage – near a fake fern which happened to have an eerie green light behind it. Tina and I both love lights – we’re kids when it comes to certain times of the year. Christmas is where she really gets to let loose!

  2. Tina asked me to thank your missus on her behalf. Tina’s pumpkin was inspired by the one your other half carved and which you put up. If you can pass on Tina’s thanks, that would be much appreciated. πŸ™‚

  3. 39 Pontiac Dream and Tee2 are some of the nicest people you will ever meet without meeting. I met 39 on a conservative political blog in the UK. In true English fashion, any time he commented on something I’d written, he was kind, funny, and incredibly savvy about politics on both sides of the Pond. I’d only been commenting on the blog for a few months but that Christmas, 39 and Tee2 posted a link to a Christmas carol to me, on the blog. It was one of the most touching things that have happened to me and I’ve never forgotten it.

    But don’t ask him about dark toast.

  4. ‘Well, now I’ve GOT to know what dark toast is. Set the toaster to too hot for too long?’

    Carcinogenic. Bread left so long in the toaster than the room is smoke when you stumble in to take it out and the toast is so burned, it breaks when you try to spread anything on it. I love Tina and Audre to bits but their way of doing toast is just not right! πŸ™‚

  5. Your girlfriend likes horror movies and lego? She and Tina would get on like a house on fire! πŸ™‚

    As soon as we get the opportunity, Tina and I are coming to America. We’ve met, of sorts, too many wonderful people here, on Neo, and on TCW and a face to face definitely has to be on the cards.

    • Yes, when you wrote how much you and Tina enjoy childlike fun and such, I was like, “Sounds me and the Shelbster.” She like certain horror movies, and loves watching the _Halloween_ flicks in October (her favorite month).

      Please do come to the States. It wouldn’t be too difficult to get from Florida (Audre) to South Carolina (me). Neo being in Nebraska might require a domestic flight out to Lincoln. Perhaps we could arrange it to where we all get together in some centralized location.

      • It would, it’s about a 3-day drive. Kearney is a lot closer, but he needs to be warned, our domestic airliners aren’t near as nice as the ones that go to Europe.

        I even know where Grand Duke Alexei of Russia went hunting with Buffalo Bill, bet you don’t have that in Calinky. But we don’t have as nice a city as Charlestown either.

      • Yeah, we are chock full of Revolutionary War history, in addition to our more ubiquitous role in the American Civil War/War of Northern Aggression/War for Southern Independence (just trying to trigger everyone here, haha). You’ll have to come to SC sometime, Neo, and we can visit some of the historic sites together.

  6. Hi Neo.

    If we ever did make it over there, we wouldn’t be flying, either internationally or domestically. Tina is scared of flying so we’d get a ferry over there and then drive everywhere; it helps that I enjoy driving and for me, it’s the best form of transport. We can stop where we want and it’d be a hell of a lot more convenient. The only thing I’d need to do is learn how to drive on the wrong side of the road! πŸ™‚

      • We certainly would. Might have to see if we can hire a Pontiac Firebird for the journey! πŸ™‚

        Chilli time now. See you all tomorrow. πŸ™‚

      • Enjoy the chili! I hope to be on the road tomorrow morning by the time Friday’s post pops, but I will catch up with comments as soon as possible.

        Alys, apologies in advance if it takes a few hours to approve your comments. I still don’t know why it makes me approve your comments every single time, and I can’t figure out a way (at least, not an easy way) to prevent the spam filter from marking your comments as “pending approval.” But that just means we’ll all get a good read whenever I take a moment to hit “approve” in the WordPress app while steering with one hand. : D
