Spook spotlight: Meet Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein

Here's a popular scare pair you wouldn't want to meet on a dark street: Frankie and his bride. They've been hanging around Spirits on Sproat for so long, they've become permanent October fixtures.

In fact, the Frankenstein monster (and that IS his proper name; remember that the name "Frankenstein" in the book and movies refers to his mad scientist creator) is one of the very first monsters ever created for our Halloween yard display.

Here are a few quick facts we bet you didn't know about these lovebirds:
•    Beverage of choice: Jolt Cola
•    Most quoted phrase: “A stitch in time saves nine.”
•    Little known fact: Served as portable generators during town’s 12-day power outage in 1974
