    I don't necessarily need this shipped, but if anyone sees black cat stress balls somewhere, can you please let me know where? My 15 yr old had one in 2nd grade, from Target's dollar section, and he loved that thing! It went missing years ago, and he's still looking for a replacement. Considering that he rarely asks for anything besides video games, I'm really hoping to surprise him with one. He's kinda stuck on black cats specifically. Thanks!

    Another tip: our profiles show who has visited them recently, so click on other names, besides your victim, too. It won't be obvious that way. :)

    I'll have to get official measurements on the height, and choose the cheapest option from there. I will need to consider how easy it will be to store, too. I'm pretty much out of room already, and I'm adding PVC fence this year, too.

    Thank you, DaveintheGrave! I will have to skip that one, then. It's a bit small for my liking, anyway.

    Quick question about your skull there, coxboy! You say he's missing the top of his skull...this might be a "misting machine" skull? I have one very similar to it. You may want to check inside the skull to see if there is a "fill line", and if the light inside looks like this: If so, these just take regular water to make mist with. I love mine, even though it leaks somewhat. I bought mine at Goodwill ages ago, too. I need to get some aquarium "glue" to fix the leak in mine, but I...

    Went to the Costco in Kennesaw, GA today for lunch. They had costumes, dog skeleton and the Day of the Dead skeleton head.I already have a large dog skeleton, and oddly, I have no interest in collecting other skeletons. Usually, I am a sucker for sets. No pose-n-stay skeletons which is what I wanted.

    Wow! I love the haunted house ones!! I have the Jack o'lantern candle, black Jack o'lantern man (thanks to Hilda and the last mini SR), and the Jack o'lantern hobo that you have there. Would love to find others in this size. I passed on a ghost last year, because it was supposed to be holding something in its hand, but it was missing. I think that it would have been a black cat. I'm kicking myself for not getting it anyway!

    UGH, does anyone know if you can choose for it to only play the violin snippet? I do not want one that plays "Werewolves of London", regardless of liking the song somewhat.

    Those may work, printersdevil! What I was kind of hoping for, was more like the giant hands that those "gutter ghouls" have...the really big ones. I think that maybe what I need to do is just find one of those at a sale that is either not in good shape, or just super cheap, and only use the hands from it. I want to attach them to the arbor gates, as if they're holding them open for the ToTs. I am tempted to try to make a pair, if I can't find the size that I'm looking for.

    I love that! I bought curtain rod hooks at Dollar Tree last year, specifically to hang curtains on the porch, and then I never did. I bought a couple of nice black lace Halloween curtain sets from a friend a few years ago, and I had a bunch of old rods laying around to hang them from. I can't decide what would be best to build my temporary enclosure with. Originally I wanted to do plywood, because it's sturdy. Then I thought about pink foam (I don't see blue here?). Last, I considered...

    Yes! I never answer the door, because people always contact me before showing up. But for some reason, I didn't think twice about going to the door when the lady rang the bell (although I chastised myself as I opened it, sure she was selling something). So I was doubly pleasantly surprised when she explained that she wanted to help. :) I ran this idea by my other half tonight, and he actually likes the idea! I like the skeleton funeral procession idea, too. I used to have 5 Bluckys and...

    Reaper 2015 likes I would love anything homemade, thrift store/yard sale treasures, or store bought. Not picky at all. I have decided to change up my yard and do Nightmare Before Christmas because my kids are finally starting to watch it with me. I really want to make a giant Jack for my yard. Would love a tombstone for Zero or a little Zero to incorporate into my cemetery. I have a huge entry way with a big staircase so I'd love some garland or something I could put on the stair...

    I did the same, Kenneth. I intended to buy the string, even though I disliked the sound (I also have something else that makes the same sound, and I wish that it didn't!). So I bought the attic light instead. I think that the string "sockets" don't really look like sockets...even though the kind of look like the attic light socket. I can't explain it, but they do look different to me for some reason. The string bulbs look like they're not in sockets to me, but the attic light does. ...

    I wish that we had good trees! We only have one on the property, and all we ever get from it is thin sticks. I'd better knock on wood now, because if we did get branches from it, they'd hit the garage, or our grouchy neighbor's wood fence! ;) I do like that idea though! I have a couple of blacklights that I usually use for our ghost lady. If I had her in the tunnel, I planned on putting one underneath the tunnel, below her. If I don't use her in the tunnel, I could just get a couple...

    I forgot to answer one of your questions, Hilda! I wouldn't mind if some didn't want to go up the tunnel. There have been a few over the years who don't want to come up to the house at all, and I go down to the sidewalk to give them candy anyway. I haven't even mentioned it to Michael last night. Generally he grumbles about Halloween, period. He may not want to have kids use the ramp at all, which would kinda bum me out now that so many good ideas have been thrown around! If he says...

    Hilda--thank you, and hugs back! :D I love all of these ideas! I am a worry wart about going down the ramp. I have a four year old son too, and he loves to run down it. I get a dozen new grey hairs each time, because he's not the most graceful child! I worried about the concrete and steps each year, too. I was so used to living in Las Vegas, where everything is too new to not be cookie-cutter safe, ya know? Then, kids just walked up the slightly inclined driveway, and there we were,...

    So frustrating. We have a grocery store with a gas card incentive program and sometimes they offer cents off per gallon with the purchase of gift cards. They carry Home Depot/Lowes, etc. gift cards. Perhaps that could be an option? Even if you can't find a store that offers incentives or sells gift cards at a discount (love Costco & Sam's for this!) it could be a safer way to order online. Admittedly, not the most convenient option, but any leftover credit on the card could easily be used on...

    Thanks everyone for the porch compliments! :D We do still use the ramp, but my son won't use it on Halloween. He's 14 and hasn't enjoyed Halloween for several years now. In addition to CP, he's autistic, and just doesn't like dressing up and dealing with the crowds, so he stays indoors and watches movies. He gets candy anyway, because he does enjoy that part, haha!

    We haven't treated or painted the ramp. It's really sort of a loaner. We were on a waiting list to get one, and a daily passerby saw me carrying Nick up the stairs every day. Her father owns properties here in town, and happened to have one come open, that he'd built the ramp for. The new tenants didn't need the ramp, so she asked her father if we could have it. I explained that we were supposed to be getting one, and he said he'd go ahead and put this one up in the meantime. Which turned out...

    I'm thinking that they'd go up it, which is easier, unless they are wearing tricky shoes. (Heels they're not accustomed to). I do wonder, if some would start up, change their minds, and go back down. The exit would be our stairs, which I would be seated next to. Alternatively, I could block both entrances, and put our ghost lady in the tunnel. I feel like I need to make some use of it. We didn't have the ramp in previous years. ToTs have always used both sets of steps, we open the arbor...

    I thought maybe I could zip tie pvc pipe to the vertical supports, and then drape a cover over it, making the tunnel around 7 ft high. Those are grip strips along it, but they're not great. They are the sandpaper style, not raised or rubber.

    We have a wheelchair ramp attached to the porch right now. Initially, I intended to block it, because I was afraid of kids tripping or falling down it. It's pretty steep...not professionally "graded". I cannot take my son down it when it's wet, because there's no stopping. However, I want to enclose our porch temporarily, and make a haunted parlor out of it. I was thinking that I could turn the ramp into a tunnel. Certainly, I would keep it blocked on both ends if it were wet. Should we...

    I can't wait to see the pictures! I'm not positive that I'm using my light this year. I have plans for it for next year for sure. Same with the gramophone. I think I'll order that from Wal-Mart. What I really want to do, is temporarily enclose our porch with decorated plywood. On the outside, make it look like an enclosed porch, and on the inside, decorate it like a haunted parlor. I just don't think that I'll have time this year, because it's difficult to work on things with the kids...

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.
