Today with the letter “K” on the A to Z Challenge we have King Kong, or as my Mom likes to say King Con! Which to me means this…
I know she mean’s King Kong… and not that horrible film made a few years ago either.. but the old one… black and white. I can remember watching it in my living room on Thanksgiving almost every year with my Grandmother… she loved the monster movies. Introduced me to all of the old monsters. Godzilla, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, The Werewolf. Every Saturday afternoon there would be “Monsterfest”, at least I think thats what it was called. If it was raining out I’d sit and watch with her. Sometimes my Mom would be off and she would always ask is “King Con on…” (Laugh).. Sometimes he was.. King Kong, diferent versions… Vs Godzilla… there were A lot of them.
