I saw a movie recently that is a classic. It was “The Fog” and represented the things we loved about the 70’s, Adrienne Barbeau, bell bottoms, station wagons, LP’s, the hairstyles especially the “feathered look”, and movies that were not slash and gore but still managed to scare people. This movie is about a fog mist that keeps coming up to shore and when it does overcome something… people die and they don’t just die of fear, they die deaths involving sharp, pointed hooks held by pissed off pirate ghosts. You NEVER want to piss off a pirate. The movie reminded me of some of the incredible fog banks we see on the shore.
Sometimes, like in the movie “The Fog”, you can see the fog coming at you from down the street. It feels like you are going to be swallowed up by it and it is a creepy, helpless feeling.
Imagine if there were pissed off pirate ghosts in the fog and everyone in the fog mist was going to die by pirate, it would be a lot of people nowadays with high-rise condominiums that abound everywhere.
Those pissed off pirates would have to go from level-to-level and maybe you could outrun them because you could hear the warning – their peglegs coming down the hall. I bet you I could outrun a pirate ghost.
Isn’t it amazing how this multimillion-dollar, multi-level high rise building just vanished? Who needs Criss Angel?
It is that time of the year again. It is the time of turkey with all the trimmings, baked goods of all kinds, and family and friends getting together to celebrate another year of life. I am now baking delicious chocolate cake for a get-together by the lighthouse. Hope pirates don’t show up at the lighthouse like they did in that movie “The Fog”.
** I have received many hits on my blog from people searching for information on whether or not South Padre Island has red tide. I was on South Padre Island yesterday and was NOT affected by any red tide. It seems that the combinations of time, tides and the recent hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico has dissipated the red tide here. Again, all this is subject to individual preferences and I can only speak for myself, but I was not affected at all either on South Padre Island or Port Isabel on the mainland.
