Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone has or had a Happy Halloween! I also hope some of you got at least a little enjoyment from my part in the Countdown to Halloween. I think I've done better in past years, I was kind of winging it this year. But, at least I managed to post something every day. I may or may not post something else later today. I'm not sure yet. Either way, I'll probably take a few days off from blogging.

I went outside around 8:00 to put the trash can on the curb. And then I noticed that I have been vandalized. Someone busted up my tombstones and pulled my monsters out of the ground. Nothing is missing and they didn't touch the cemetery gateway. It was probably some punk kids. It looks like they may have run up to my decorations and kicked them. I'm not out a lot of money. I bought those tombstones at a garage sale for 25¢ each. It just makes me mad that some people have no respect for someone else's property.

Movie Monster Mazes - Part 7

And finally, the last installment of Movie Monster Mazes. In case you had any trouble doing these mazes, here are the solutions.

Tricking and Treating

We had trick-or-treat here in Akron last night from 5 to 7 PM. The temperature was in the 40s, but at least it didn't rain or snow. My son's girlfriend Jordyn sat in the cold with me to hand out candy, a now yearly tradition that we started just last year, and my wife made us hot chocolate later in the night.

This year I made treat bags for the little beggars. Each bag had a fun-size candy bar, a gummy skeleton or teeth, a rubber fly and a couple more small pieces of candy. I made 40 of them because we only had 32 trick-or-treaters last year. Of course this year there were around 60. So, the last 20 only got a couple of pieces of candy without the bag.

A lot of the kids didn't put a whole lot of effort into their costumes. Either they didn't have a costume at all or they just had some fake blood on their face. One kid had his costume still in the package hooked onto his back pocket. There were a few Spider-Man's, a couple of Mario's, an Autobot and a banana. The best costume I saw was a young girl dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. All in all, it was still a fun night.

Jordyn likes to manipulate the colors and saturation in photos. Here are those manipulated pics --

Cemetery Gateway

Thanks to the $50 coupon code I won over at Freddy In Space, I now own a cemetery gateway. It was delivered by UPS today and me and Jordyn put it up. What do you think? Too much spiderwebs?
