Scary Stories

Under the DomeI have to admit that when it comes to Stephen King’s stories, I’m a wimp. I’ve never read one and only watch the movies a bit at a time through parted fingers. I think I remember seeing the end of one of his movies when I was little where a hand comes up out of the grave or out of water – something like that. I had nightmares for a week!
