The Twilight Zone

Last weekend I found myself on the floor folding clothes and watching The Twilight Zone. Turned out they were doing an all day Twilight Zone showing. I watched four of them in a row. I love those shows. I remember when I was a young girl watching it at night and being terrified. They really do have great messages. Very creative. The one that stands out the most in my mind was a show that had a little monster out on the wing of a plane and it was hammering away at the wing to make it go down. A man (John Lithgow) could see it but nobody believed him. This might have been the Outer Limits show. I can't remember. However I always check out the window of my planes to make sure the little guy is not out there. Nene nene nene nene!
Lately we have been having really beautiful twilight. There are bright bands of color on the western horizon. And finally I am almost finished with the second Twilight book. Silly as they are I love reading it. I received the famed Kindle for my birthday and Jeff wonders why I have not used it yet. It is because I have the four Twilight books already purchased and I have to read them first. I did buy the Quickbooks for Dummies on the Kindle. Pretty exciting huh.
Happy twilight to you!

That Twilight Zone episode TOTALLY freaked me out when I was a kid!

I loved the Twilight books too. I haven't seen the movie yet but really want to go. I need to find a gal who wants to see it since Gary's not interested in going.
I remember watching the Twilight Zone as well, it was really freaky back in the day. Our kids would laugh about that due of the evolvement of scary shows.
This is an appropriate post for you since your birthday put you into the twilight years of life. Hahahaha :)
Hugs and kisses

Mary, Michaela and I are reading your blog and she is loving your thoughts on the movie "Twilight" and the picture. I told you she has seen the movie seven times, she has issues,and she agrees with Tauna about Edward. I guess I need to see the movie and start reading the books.
