Praying For Daylight...or...Was I?

Tell me, do such things happen to you? After I hit the sack following an over abundance of food and drink, along came a dream about taking the cover off my cloaked in patina and pedestrian '67, tachin' it up, and heading to the next "Cars & Coffee". Look what transpired on the way! People tell me I have quite an imagination.
Former Playboy pinup and B-movie actress of the 50's Yvette Vickers recently died at the age of 82. But it wasn't until a year later, that her mummified body was found in her Beverly Hills home.  A neighbor,  found the "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" star lying on the floor of an upstairs room, after pushing open a barricaded front gate, "scaling a hillside", climbing through a broken window and pushing through stacks of "clothes, junk mail and letters" to reach her.

The shot of the 50-foot woman (Allison Hayes) walking along a ridgecrest casually knocking over high-power lines was interrupted when ALL of the llights went out! It was some time before we learned that someone out on the highway had crashed his car into a power pole and knocked out the lights for miles around."
