    Lin you are doing some super work!!!. That Vincent painting is scarelicius, made me shiver and shake and thoughts back to the 1950’s , when coming out of the Royal Theater after seeing the latest Vincent movie. We were always scared to death and every shadow and movement sent us off in a running trot. KK lived 10 blocks away and we made it in good time on foot., swearing that we would never go to another Vincent Price movie, but of course couldn’t wait until the next one was on. Oh for your info. the old Royal Theater was down the block from where Willy Jack’s is now. Looks like Vincent is alive, wowee.

    Thanks. Yeah, I love Vincent Price movies. Been picking up a lot of old horror flicks lately. Wish I could have seen some of those in a theater. The closest I’ve come was King Kong at a theater in Louisville during Wonderfest. The cool thing was I got to see it with Ray Harryhausen, Bob Burns, and King Kong! Well, actually it was the original puppet they used for the movie. Bob now owns it.
