Valentines and Monsters in 1965 (Above photo courtesy of Cortlandt Hull at The Witch’s Dungeon)

It was the big day in Central School on Main Street in Grove City, PA back in 1965. Valentines Day. It really wasn’t about girlfriends, boyfriends or romance. It was about a school party. Cupcakes brought in by parents, colorful cards and just a day of excitement. And….the decorating of the shoebox you brought in from home! The Valentines day box for cards from fellow students.

There was white gelatinous paste (the weird kid in the back was tasting it, yeach), the construction paper, the small rounded end metal scissors. Our teacher passed out catalogs so we could cut out pictures to glue to the sides of our boxes. Plus, there was colored pencils and markers (still a new novelty then!). The teacher helped us all cover it with red construction paper and cutting a haphazard slot opening on the lid.

I went at it with drawing on my shoebox. I drew the obligatory hearts with arrows through them. Some of the arrows were through people’s heads too. And, I drew people on my box…well, if you want to call them people. They were men and women with scraggly hair, scars, missing teeth, bug-bloodshot eyes. They had either big lips or were screaming.

There were a lot of “ewwws” from the girls that came by to drop a little mini-Valentine card in my box. I don’t remember any comments from the teacher on my box…I can only imagine. But, she may have not noticed with all the party day chaos.

Then it was those cupcakes and cookies. In those days the desserts were not from a local grocery…but, all homemade by the moms. Valentines was a fun day at school. I got to draw monsters.

Get Ready….Big News From Universal!

My daughter, Paisley, came running down the stairs last night to where I was, watching MAN MADE MONSTER in honor of Lon Chaney, Jr.’s recent birthday. She said enthusiastically “Dad, have you see this?! What’s coming to Universal Studios in Florida?”

She showed me this article on her laptop and played the video. Zounds! A new theme park area at Universal Florida and a CLASSIC MONSTERS section planned with blue prints filed publicly. I can’t wait for 2023! Here’s the web site with all the details:
