Happy Labor Day Weekend

Yes, I'm still alive. Things are not great around here for my mother not only suffered a heart attack but she also fell and broke her hip. Money is tight and I haven't bought any thing comic related in a long time.

Anway, I hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day weekend. Since October is just around the corner, this is a good time to give notice that I will be partaking in this year's Countdown to Halloween. I'm not exactly sure what this year's theme will be but I'm sure I'll come up with something by then.

Meanwhile, here is a picture of Elvira singing:

Eddy's Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Twirl Ice Cream #2

I picked up this Eddy's Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Twirl Ice Cream on Monday after seeing posts of the Eddy's Batman and Superman Ice Creams on Facebook. The local Walmart's didn't have any at the time and the local Dillons just had this one. There are four in the Wonder Woman series and I picked up #2.

The back of the Eddy's Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Twirl Ice Cream #2 shows her battling Cheetah with the following text:

Truth and Consequences Part 2 of 4
Cheetah: You can see how the gem of nature has intensified my powers. And I can feel the gem of wisdom expanding my mind!

Wonder Woman: Those gems were never meant for the likes of you, Cheetah!

Cheetah: At least I know how to deal you the ultimate defeat, Wonder Woman!
Eddy's Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Twirl Ice Cream is caramel and vanilla light ice cream with star-shaped caramel flavored chips and a graham cracker swirl. It's pretty creamy and I like it overall.
I went back the local Dillons store yesterday and they had the Eddy's Batman Brownie Bites #3 but I didn't get it. I went back to the local Walmart's this morning and found that they had Batman, Superman (cookie dough) and Wonder Woman ice creams. I didn't pick any up because I still have half of the Eddy's Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Twirl Ice Cream. I really like the lid but the container is going to be hard to save.

Countdown to Halloween 2017 Day 29: Dark Shadows Werewolf Trading Card

TMC had the two Dark Shadows movies yesterday afternoon. I missed the House of Dark Shadows with vampire Barnabas but watched the Night of Dark Shadows with the ghost Angelique. I've seen both of them countless times and still have the on VHS (note to self: get them on DVD one of these days). A third Dark Shadows movie was planned but never made and I believed it would have had a werewolf in it. I have never seen an episode of the series with the werewolf in it. Of course, I've seen the reboot movie with Johnny Depp and thought it was okay but not great. I have watched a few episodes from the Dark Shadows binge on the Decades channel. Most of them, I have seen a few times from when the series was on SyFy channel.
