Oh that old thing, I've had it forevvvvvvvver! Videos!

Gave my new Sony Handycam a workout today, you know the one, that old thing that was stuck under my bed for the past few months until the new wore off...

Got some video of some of the new props in the works for 2010's manifestation of the Final Unresting Place Cemetery...mainly to show the mechanisms just in case anyone out there might get some inspiration.  I did learn that a capacitor off of one of the motors can still bite HARD even after the power plug has been yanked from the wall a while.  Yeowch!!!

It was 102 degrees today.  What the heck is wrong with our weather?!  If Hallowe'en is anything like it has been like the past few days, Mr. Macabre is going to be handing out candy in a leopard thong rather than wool greatcoat!

You really didn't need that image , did you?

And of course, if you have any questions, I'm here to further confuse you.

Thank you so much...I think that I sound like someone from Deliverance though.

WOW everything is looking great so far! If you don't have to do it 3 times it isn't worth doing at all. I can't wait to see it in your yard.

102! Thats worse than down here. I have a bad feeling it will be pretty toasty on Halloween, again.

That piano-playing ghost is going to ROCK!

I would be most honored Carrie Mae!
