Blankets, beach chairs, and flashlights

Last Friday night was downright cold. I know because I was sitting on a beach chair, wrapped in two blankets, on the lawn at the FARM Institute in Edgartown, and having a ball. "Twilight at the FARM" brought out more than 150 hardy folks to watch two "Twilight Zone" episodes and a Simpson's Halloween special outside, on a big screen. After the show, most people took their flashlights and ventured into the corn maze. Funds from this event benefited the institute's educational programs.

The "Twilight Zone" episode "To Serve Man" was met with some laughter when the 9-foot, 350-pound Kanamit spaceman came on the screen. All the make-up couldn't disguise actor Richard Kiel who went on to play the wonderful villain Jaws in the 007 film "Moonraker."
