Mad Monster Madness 2015

Welcome to my shadowy, wee corner of the 4th annual May Monster Madness blog party, hosted by author Annie Walls. For this year's festivities,  Maynard from the Horror Movie Diary blog suggested the theme of insects and creepy crawlies, so I've gone with my favourite arachnid, Homer.

In the sixties series of The Addams Family, the animal-loving clan had all manner of treasured critters. Pugsley's special pet was an octopus named Aristotle, and the creature Wednesday cherished the most was her spider, Homer.

When Granny Frump (Morticia's mother) was feeling a little depressed about getting old (Season 2, Episode 22, 'Happy Birthday, Grandma Frump'), Wednesday attempted to cheer her up by reciting this poem she wrote about Homer:

Wednesday: "Did you like it?"
Granny Frump: "It's sweet... but I'm still sad."

Thank you for joining Wednesday, Homer, and me for May Monster Madness! Just click on the links below to mingle with the other partygoers.
