    I'm quite sure it was not the low battery alarm. It was a duplex so I assumed it was a C02 detector going off. It doesn't matter. Were you able to put everything away for the season?

    You had the forum's best headstones of 2013! I can't wait to see what you make next year.

    Hey I got a question for ya about a smoke detector; you being a hose puller I'm sure u can shed some light on the subject. I went to an audible alarm call which turned out to be a smoke detector . We get them from time to time when some idiot throws one in the trash with the battery in it. Anyway I pull in the block and I can hear it from four houses down. Its the standard audible smoke detector alarm that im familiar with but as I reach the door I hear a rapid secondary alarm I have never heard before. Dummy had left kielbasa cooking on the stove and fell asleep thru all that racket. I booted the door.... I put it out. The apartment was black with smoke . It had been going for white awhile. Anyway I had a hard time waking these people. I had to yell and scream and shake the **** out of this woman . I got slapped in the process when she woke up.My question is on a standard Kidde is that rapid alarm a co2 alarm? I've never heard it before...

    Oh, that's funny about the code and so cute :) Very glad you are inspired to try the more involved props. To me they are scary (which I loved being scared) and satisfying. I'm an adrenaline junkie in trying new techniques.

    Wow, your props are amazing. Especially TS-3. What does TS-3 stand for? Is it based on a game?

    Many thanks for the comments on the pics. :) And great work on those stones, very impressive work CFD, congrats! Can't wait to see the photos of your display this year. Cheers! :D

    Thanks for the photo comment. I used a Cricut machine to cut black cardstock, then strung the bats on thin fishing line. There are a few firefighters in my family - thank you for what you do!

    Hello - I saw your question about the Hell Hound. I used PL300 which is a caulk tube of foamboard glue. But, if I was to do it over again - I think I'd use Glidden Gripper. The problem with PL300 is that if there is no air - it never dries. That complicated the carving because you keep hitting still wet glue.

    well good luck with all that, going to the Blackhawks game tomorrow.....which should be awesome! good luck with the PSO program we fought ours and we won....they were not happy about that but oh well...have it good now....so it all worked out... and Happy Halloween!

    Sorry about the slow response....

    You improve with every test, until the change the test to something entirely different. It looks like I might have to be a hose puller myself. The city is going to try and force us to become Public safety. What a nightmare....

    I had to remodel my cottage, so I too got a very late start and a reduced budget. I'm just working on fine details and one new display. The kids are really excited. Hopefully the weather will hold.
