Pattern of the Month - Anniversary

October! Wow! Where does the time go? Here in southern Ontario, October is the month when Autumn really takes hold. Leaves change colours, we celebrate Thanksgiving (Oct. 8) and, of course, October is the month of Hallowe'en. For me, however, October is also the month I married my beautiful wife more years ago then I care to admit. As this year's pumpkin theme is Romance, I can't think of a more fitting finale than this carving of one of our wedding photos.

Have a good Thanksgiving and a Happy Halloween everyone! Good carving for both events!

Our Anniversary

Barnabas Collins Dead

No, no one staked the famous Dark Shadows vampire, however Hamiltonian Jonathan Frid, the actor who portrayed Barnabas inspiring a line of merchandise, comic books and decades of conventions, died on April 14th, 2012.

Frid was a consummate stage actor with many years of success after the close of Dark Shadows. However he was never ashamed of his time on the gothic soap opera, regularly attending conventions and always having time for fans.

You'll be missed, John!
