October | darkness falls across the land ...

Darkness falls across the land 
The midnight hour is close at hand 
Creatures crawl in search of blood 
To terrorize your neighborhood 
And whosoever shall be found 
Without the soul for getting down 
Must stand and face the hounds of hell 
And rot inside a corpse's shell 
The foulest stench is in the air 
The funk of forty thousand years 
And grisly ghouls from every tomb 
Are closing in to seal your doom 
And though you fight to stay alive 
Your body starts to shiver 
For no mere mortal can resist 
The evil of the thriller

How poetic to quote 'Thriller' by Michael Jackson amid a jury finding that his production company was not responsible for his untimely death but the artist himself (with a little help I'm guessing from his physician/s).
So much talent. So many demons.  Really sad!

 Back in the day our Halloween decoration department consisted of paper/cardboard witches and skeletons with hinged limbs and perhaps a pumpkin or two (real not fake). 
 We were party animals and went all out. 

When the calendar hits October, I immediately think of decorations as much as colorful foliage.
Over the years I have amassed a reasonable collection of Halloween decorations and at one time managed to have just about every room in the house accented for the occasion.

but as the kids got older, fewer and fewer items came out of the box.
This year, however, I've decided to pull it all out (pretty much) because it was never just about the kids.  

I'm still not sure how I came to own pumpkin and witch squirters - but I do, so there! 
Sunday the yard will be filled with tombstones and fake spider-webs. 
Yep, darkness falls across the land and the decorations come out 

Cause this is thriller, thriller night 
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike 
You know it's thriller, thriller night 
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

(insert images of the monster dance not necessary - you know you're thinking it.  you're welcome!)

  1. What fun decorations. And how cool to read Thriller. Made a chill go up my spine.

  2. fun, Nicki! Brought back a lot of memories. :)

  3. I loved the cardboard decorations of old. Some of them today are right creepy! I like cutesy.

  4. cool shots of all your Halloween goodies

  5. That's such a great song! Love your Halloween decorations. Halloween is such a fun holiday - no presents, no big meals to make, just lots of candy and cool decorations! xo

  6. I miss having little ones to take trick-or-treating. Heck, I miss getting trick-or-treaters at the door (none here out in the sticks.) Love your colorful decorations.

  7. Hi Nicki, Oh the first capture and the poem did give medd goose pumps ... even more so, as I started to recognize Thriller ... These decorations are wonderful!

  8. Love this song..loved MJ's music. I grew up with it. It really is a major loss to the music world, his fans...and to his family more importantly.

  9. For some reason, the comments on your Random 5 didn't load for me, so I thought I'd drop you a line here in your previous blog. Halloween Rocks!!!

    I'm new to Random 5 this week, and thought I'd try and get the gist of it all by paying you a visit!! Happy weekend.
