  2. Organization... and letting stuff go.

    General Halloween
    When I get rid of something here.. there is very little left of it. Yesterday I built sort of a shed to hold some boards. Wood and steel scraps are always very useful to me. Rusty steel? Grind off the rust, it will weld just fine!

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I was in a Mask Shop looking at all of the available masks,when I stopped and could not take my eyes from a mask of a U-bangi ?, the tribe with the plates in their lips. I cautiously asked the clerk.. "uh, don't Black people get offended by That mask?" The Cleark's answer was :"No, guess who...

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I am stuck with one "Theme"--"This house is Haunted!" I can talk for a long time concerning such odd, supernatural events that have happened here, which began at least as early as 1925. This place has quite a varied and checkered "History" (not all of it "Good" ) This October I told how a...

    Today on the local Facebook site for this tiny town, someone wanted to know where all of the former residents now lived looking for the person who moved the farthest away. I posted there :"I live right here in Mount Carroll, but I live inside of The Ravens Grin Inn, so I am farthest "Away"! (In...

    My "Halloween Decorations" never come down. Most exterior decorations are welded and bolted together (Anti-Vandalism Mode) I have always had way too much fun to become bored,but then I would rather make people laugh And Scream than just scream... never ., boring

    Many who come to enjoy my Haunt would never spend $300 either, or wait in line for three hours. As a Haunt owner, i know how things can sometimes go, as "Beyond one's control, no-show-no-call employees top that short list. Then there is the Weather! Then the price of a Gal. of gas, sporting...
  8. An observation on the spookier night

    General Halloween
    Sometimes a strange odd feeling just" comes-a-calling". If something unexpected or unusual happens then, we may wish to take note. Something or someone just may be trying to let us know something.. which might be important?
  9. Organization... and letting stuff go.

    General Halloween
    I may be .. wrong? Isn't there a Latex that will not decompose? If all of our favorite old masks and heads were made of such a product, wouldn't THAT BE NICE! I had a Bat mask from the late 1960s that finally was totally gone just a few years ago. It may have actually been made from some sort...

    This October as a woman was still waiting outside to begin her tour here, she told us how she had recently paid $300 for Haunt tickets, this included "Speed Passes", then they stood in-line for 3 Hours! Then some "Gang-Bangers" began hassling them for their tickets or place in line! (No...

    A local woman's sister paid a Psychic $1,200.. but when she gave her reading ... things only known to the sister concerning her deceased Father came out. The man always talked about his "Boat" and how he had to allow you to board, and if you displeased him some how, you would not be allowed on...

    Last Sunday afternoon and Night saw me running the while house by myself. My Wife was sick and our normal help all had previous plans (or something?) Guess what? I had So Much FUN! To give a complete tour of my house takes quite a lot of plain, old "Time". Thankfully not everyone came here at...

    Yes! Trans World-Chicago was only 2 Hours from me. I knew St. Louis was out of the question. I already knew what an ordeal that dive would be for me, since my Ex had her Mother near there and we went to see her a couple of times. But then, in13 years of attending Trans world/Chi-town, I only...
