Sorry about the quality. These tulips were taken years ago with a 35mm camera, 400 asa so they are grainy.
I had the pleasure to meet “Tiny Tim” of the “Tiptoe Through The Tulips” fame so many years ago. I had some vintage sheet music to give him. I was 17, my boyfriend at the time drove myself, my best friend & with my baby brother in tow, we went to his hotel to drop it off. He was signing autographs for people, we spoke for a while, in his “normal” voice. Calling my friend & I “Miss” all the time, that he does do. Very polite & complementary the entire time. I was shocked to learn that this hit was used in the horror film “Insidious,” which I have never seen. Not a real horror buff. I thought he was a kick. Someone very sweet, unique & entertaining.
And I just let it.
Not a fan anymore.
I still like some of the old Horror movies from Hammer like Christopher Lee’s Dracula, but I’ve never been a fan of horror films. I used to love Trick or Treating & getting the biggest haul I could.
Our culture is very different from the 50’s & 60’s. If I had children or grandchildren I don’t know if I would allow them to “beg” at the homes of strangers.
I live way out in the country in a secure apartment building now that does not allow trick or treaters, though I stopped giving out candy many years before simply because of the late hours I worked. Once my kids grew up & moved out, no more “beggars.”
I hope everyone had a safe Holiday time for those that celebrate this or Dia de los Muertos.
