New Years Eve?

Posted on December 31, 2012 at 1:39pm 0 Comments

So, another year is over.... Or is it?

Actually for us haunters, November 1st begins our new year.

So, we will celebrate this evening, but the year has already begun.


This weekend we managed to pick up 9 LED window candles at Lowes for $0.50 each in a clearance basket. That's a 90% discount!

These will get grimed up and maybe even wired to eliminate the battery needs for halloween 2013.


We also hit a craft store in San Luis Obisbo while on…


Crunch Time...

OK, 5 days and counting...

It's going to be a crazy weekend for sure.

I need to get all the "stuff" out of the rafters in the garage and sort things out...

I hope I have the soundtrack CDs from last year. I spent too much time on them and the HD on the PC crashed this spring and I just have run out if time to start the lengthy process of layering sounds to create the special ambiance I want.

I hope I can get at least one more pneumatic popup built and… Continue

As I recover from the painting of my family room post flood this past July (even though the color would make the Pumpkin King himself envious it's called apple crisp, but it's orange alright). You know how paint is. It is an infection. Once it starts in one spot in your house it seems to spread every where because "it just looks so much better"...

I was just sending a welcome message to a new member on another forum and had this thought...


My generation has to be the luckiest of all in regards to celebrating Halloween...

I am 48 and my prime Halloween developmental years were in the late 60's and early 70's.

I grew up in the O.C. (Anaheim as a matter of fact).

Hi again Greg!    Happy to have you as a friend here in the Garage! We'll have to get together sometime before Halloween this year.There are now about 4 or 5 of us here in the Valley. I've welcomed each of them... Some have answered, some have not? I wonder if we should try to form our own little group of haunters here in the Valley?
