Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, Everyone!

I thought I'd celebrate the day by posting one of my favorite photos. I took this shot a few years back in an old Jewish cemetery on the outskirts of my city. No Photoshoppery here, it's a real tombstone!

In all these years I never realized the Monster's name was "Lester."*

Frankenstein was first published in 1811, well before Lester & Bertha here were born, so I'm sure they must have had to put up with a lot of jokes about their last name. Hopefully they didn't get chased by villagers with torches very often.

*Yes, I know the Monster's name was not Frankenstein, but I've called him that for too many years to change now.

  1. I forget now how I found out about this. I think I heard people around town talking about it, so I decided to try and find it myself. I drove around until I found the cemetery, which was very small. I looked around for a few minutes and there it was, all the way in the back. I couldn't believe it was real.
