Jennifer Nichole Wells has picked vampire/bat for her Halloween Challenge today which means that I must just say a word about my all-time favorite movie vampire, Dracula, as played by the charismatic Christopher Lee. Just hearing his voice made me go weak at the knees! I remember when I was in my early teens, my mother was horrified to find me engrossed in Bram Stoker’s thrilling novel. Apparently she thought it wasn’t particularly nice reading material for a young girl but, as I explained to her, it was a classic, as was Christopher’s portrayal of the infamous vampire.
On a lighter note, I found these family-friendly vampires at Goebbert’s Pumpkin Farm the other day. For more on Jennifer’s Halloween Challenge go to https://jennifernicholewells.com/2016/09/26/jnws-halloween-challenge-2/
Sue’s Word A Week Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/11/12/a-word-a-week-challenge-pose/ is Pose. I tend to associate the word ‘pose‘ with the definition of ‘to assume a posture or attitude usually for artistic purposes‘ or ‘to affect an attitude or character usually to deceive or impress.’ Here are a few people posing as someone other than themselves.
The Singing Executioners at King Richard’s Faire in Wisconsin. I must say I did enjoy their performance.
Another performer at King Richard’s Faire, wearing my favorite color, purple.
I’m fairly certain this wasn’t the real Mickey Mouse advertising a ‘going out of business’ sale in downtown Columbus, Indiana.
Once again, drawn to those purple colors; two ladies dressed in period costume, going for a buggy ride at Old World Wisconsin.
