    How did you loosen up the joints in the shoulders and elbows? I've got a pose-n-stay skelly I'm starting to try to transform into one of these gravediggers. Also did you have to change the position of any of the arm sections with a heat gun or anything like that? Thanks for any help!

    Last night, Saturday night, Feb.18th we were open as usual, and we were very busy like we have never been this time of year! We know why. It is usually not 70 degrees in February in northern Illinois! We saw groups, families, fans old and new, and everyone seemed So Happy! (How can I find and get a Voo-Doo Weather-changer? )

    Gym Whourlfeld replied to a thread Bat Prop in General Halloween
    I bought a $10 "Bat" with maybe a 12inch wingspan? It had a motor in it to move it's wings, I had it on a long pole hanging down by some fish line.. It never scared anybody. The bat's motor quit.. then people began screaming? I never figured that out? I do know that with some people the house itself scares quite a few people , they stand outside, looking at the house and their imaginater goes to work. (Thank You , House!)

    "Gothic" You know, doing something that you enjoy doing does tend to keep (At least some part of you) "Young". I have never smoked, drank or used "Drugs" trying to just maintain my fleeting youth, but a few years ago I began a drawing on a few walls inside my Haunt, illustrating all of the times that I could have been seriously injured or killed.........I could not believe the results of my drawing.. So Many Times I could have died or been crippled severely for life, but I lucked out. I...

    Great movement! I love this prop. And I like the way you hid the motor mechanism. Very ingenious. Nice job!

    Because my Wife and I also live in our haunted house, people ask us if we live here? "Yes we do." "Do you sleep in this house?" "Yes." "Where do you sleep?" Answer number one:"I sleep in the attic hanging up-side down from a steel hook." Answer number two (If they didn't like that one):" Oh, All you groupies want to know that!"

    for some reason my mind is quick to pick up on so called "Co-incidents" My life has been filled with them and sometimes they run so heavy.. you just wonder if they still are coincidental?.. "Ignore the man behind the curtain!" I was present when Jeremy's when his friend "Darkside" was there loading up a lot of stuff. It was a lot of work trying to own and operate a one-man mask business. It tends to be more than just a full-time job. Jeremy might still be making masks? It's been a few...

    HARBOE! A young woman who came through my house from Dubuque (As in "IOWA"!) told me that she once lived in apartment that was on the edge of a big cliff that had been a bunker? All concrete,sort of underground, small and few windows. She said it seemed to be a very old structure. So far I have not met anyone who can tell me where they might be located? (Maybe it's one of those German bunkers!?... or not?)

    I would also have people commonly ask me things like"Are you Crazy?" (And similar statements meant to demean my smarts) After hearing such idiotic remarks I finally might reply with:"Crazy? " Who" just paid" who" to be in here?" (Followed by an evil laugh)

    For quite a few years my neighbor across the alley from me was Jeremy Bohr, a professional mask maker. One night three Haunters came to see my house, then when the house tour was complete , my Exit comes out directly across from Jeremy's back-Basement door. I walked them over there and they were very impressed by Jeremy's masks. One time as I was there as he was sculpting, in maybe 20 minutes a lump of clay became Christopher Walkins (Head-less Horseman) right before my eyes! Often I could...

    Many years ago I was given this bag of coffee now situated in front of me as I type. DEADMAN'S REACH Coffee-Ravens Brew "Served in bed-Raises the Dead!" reading the fine print (for the first time)"Deadman's reach" is an actual book and this product seems to be helping to advertise it? The entire bag is covered by small print specializing in some fantastic ideas, (Almost Poetry?) A year or two ago I showed this to someone coming through my house and they said it is made in Alaska? Nice...

    The movement of it reminds me of someone exercising in the gym--pulling on those ropes that lift the weights. I guess it's an alternative to an FCG if someone can't build their own. And hopefully it will last longer than one season of use.

    Well, if he likes them during the day, he'll probably get used to them in the nighttime as he gets older. I hope so. You can do a lot with window silhouettes.

    Nice looking luggage! I don't know if I'd buy it, though. Be kinda creepy to fly with luggage that screams: "Day of the Dead". :)
