    I picked up the multi colored one from Lowe's, from their Halloween section. The Try Me was terrible, but I wanted to use it for both Halloween and Christmas, and I thought if nothing else, it would at least be good for Christmas. When I got it home and tried it out, I was really impressed with how much light it threw. However, I have only used it indoors so far, and we do have a street light right across from our house. I'm not sure it will do much out there, but I'm going to give it a...

    I have this SO BAD. I have not made a single thing for myself this year. I haven't repaired much of anything that needed repaired, either. I have very few things out right now, although I do hope to get a good portion of it out over the weekend, and may take a day off next week to get it all done. I think I'm going to be brave and put out as much as I can, and just take the expensive or irreplaceable parts in (fog machine, fire and ice light, heads from creatures, Wally skeleton and Becky...

    Yes! I got rained out last year. I put up a few things, and we had a handful of ToTs. I'm honestly afraid to look at the weather forecast...but I'm about to, anyway. I just put my name in for a possible newspaper interview, and I don't have even 1/4 of my stuff out yet! Edit: oh my gosh! rain one day that week, but not the 30th or 31st! I guess I really need to get my rear in gear!!

    Not a believer in haunted houses, so not a deal breaker for me. It amazes me how everything is caught on cell phone videos but we still have no great video of aliens or ghosts.

    Thanks for posting. I have a roll of hardware cloth that I purchased just for this purpose, but I stalled on my last clown prop. This thread is quite the motivator.

    I plan on taking Thursday and Friday off. I hope to have 50% or more done this weekend or at least ready to go for quick installation. Hopefully, I can finish all loose ends on Thursday. I was working on stuff all the way to 7pm last year as the kids started walking down to my house. I have no intention of putting that kind of pressure on myself this year.

    I know that Spirit has pretty much sold out of the led spots and fire and ice and toxic green led lights. Home Depot has their Christmas stuff out and they have all these in stock. They are made by Gemmy but are packaged for Christmas in different boxes. I don't know for sure that they are the same but they sure look like it. The spot light LEDs are $15 and the fire and ice type lights are $20. They have blue, red and green spots and fire and ice type light in the same colors. I got a blue...

    I hope that the cannibal people are finished by Rick and the gang. If that happens, I bet one of the the Terminus people has Michon's sword. Michon is not the same character when killing zombies with a gun versus the ultra cool slicing and dicing sword.

    The only thing that I liked in there was the giant skulls for $20. If they became cheap enough, I might pick up a couple to add to my roof next year. Besides the fact that they're huge, they're not very realistic looking but I'm still drawn to them for some reason. I think it's because I had a couple of Halloween dreams where I had large skull props. Our larger store was nearly out of all of their Nightmare Before Christmas stuff, but I didn't go to our smaller store to see what they...

    I am so happy with the first two episodes this season. Nice pace, solid plots. Plus, they have reset the good guy/bad guy paradigm. I get Rick and them have self doubts at times about their killing, but the bad guys this season are really, really, bad. I wonder what the preacher did that his him all tangled up. I bet he locked up the church and would not let people in.

    I don't look at Halloween as a display to be enjoyed by people driving by. I view it is as more of a one night performance. Now, that is easy for me to say since I live on a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood with little to no traffic. I would have maybe 4 neighbors that could look down the street and see my set-up. So for me, it is all about Halloween night and the 75 kids that will drop by. I start about three weeks out with some of the big stuff, like the cemetery fence with an emphasis on...

    Our store restocked the motion sensor mice, but they're in bags this time. Last box they were just thrown in there. They were not at the checkout this time, they were in the regular aisle.

    We only had about 50, if that, total for both nights last year. Weather was cold and rainy, though. I bought 6 bags of vampire fangs with candy blood bags (48 pc total), 252 chocolate bar pcs, and 200 Willy Wonka pcs. Plus 100 glow bracelets and some leftover mini rubber ducks from last year. (and somewhere, stickers and spider rings!)

    I learned that Priority 2 Day shipping paid for online is much cheaper than paying at the Post Office. I regularly pay less than $15 per box, and the ones that I send are considered to be larger than their "large" Priority box. I know that a lot of people don't like to use their cards online, but this has saved me a LOT of money in the past year. I don't know if the frequency that I send packages has anything to do with it or not. I agree with getting the box arranged first, too, so that...

I suggest that we stack the bodies in the cellar, lock it, leave quietly one at a time and forget that any of this has ever happened.
