    I wanted to say , its a pleasure to meet you. I read your greeting thread from a tablet but wasn't able to post in that moment but intended to, and then later, I couldn't find the thread, so I do it here, and welcome you warmly. :smile2:

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    Needful Things was one of the books I had to read more than once to fully enjoy. I found the movie on YouTube last year and enjoyed it for what it was. A lot of things were left out (of course), but Von Sydow as Gaunt made up for it. He really was marvelous.

    I'm due to reread the book myself after of course i reread a couple of Kinky Friedmans ....i still felt that Gaunt in the movie was speaking as he would in the book ....

    :laugh: I hear you! I couldn't agree with you more, just Stephen King and ghosts and poltergeists and horrible pending doom , but chain those two up, lock me out, Please!

    I see a post related to a hot button issue for me and I'll start to post a reply. I may even type a long, tactful reply. I most often never hit the post button... it's not worth the stress. Politics and religion and a couple more topics have cost me real life friendships....

    And of course there was that much-bigger-than-in-the-movie dust-up between the Catholics and the Baptists that makes Needful Things a must-read, though the movie is still good, in my opinion, one of the better adaptations ...
