"He Was Headless!"

"On mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveller in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless!--but his horror was still more increased on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of his saddle!"
- Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

That's a really good story! I haven't seen the one with Jhonny Depp but I've heard it's a good one.

Have a great day!

I just re-read that tale. First time in over fifty years. Forgot how good it was. Now it will become a yearly tradition.
