Sneak preview


They were putting up the Halloween deco in the pub tonight, so I helped with this self-portrait.

I am publishing it now in case you need to print it out to frighten any children on the 31st.

Enjoy.

  1. Happy Halloween Tom. I've got a red hat a bit like that one - I probably scare the kids too.

    1. For different reasons maybe - my hat isn't red: which sounds like a translation from a Ukrainian phrase-book.

  5. Ha - I agree with Annie Lennox:
    "Sweet dreams are made of this/ Who am I to disagree?"
    (a nylon-stocking over the head might have a similar effect)

  6. You're a very scary man. However, OB said "What is that?" as opposed to "Who is that" as he sashayed past just now.

  7. Well Tom,
    I'd be a bit worried if I were you…. if you screw your eyes up and look at the blue parts of your face, you look just like a rams head ….. Satan himself often appeared with goat's horns and sometimes changed his shape completely into a goat !!!!…... and, the horned and hoofed Greek God Pan is one of the most important entities of witchcraft. Pan is known as the God of rape and sexual immorality !!
    Take care tomorrow Tom !!
    a-ooooooooooooo !!!!! XXXX

    1. Somehow, my mouth has assumed a shape which it never normally does. At least you can tell from the pin-prick eyes that I am not on drugs.
