It’s almost Halloween. I’m trying to get into the Halloween spirit by dressing a little “halloweenie” when I can. Unfortunately, I had to take down some of my props today because the wind started to pick up due to Hurricane Sandy. We don’t have rain yet, but it’s expected to come tomorrow and be very, very heavy.
Although I put together a nice little movie from video I took at a Make-and-Take gathering I went to back in August, I had forgotten how to do it. Last night, I took some video on my camcorder. Not too bad under the circumstances. The music adds a nice touch. I just wish I could have set up all of my props. But there’s always next year.
I hope all my friends in NJ and PA are okay over the next couple of days. Speaking with several online, I found most have disassembled their haunts due to the storm. What a bummer! Working all year for this one night and then having to take everything down because of the weather. The main thing is that everyone is safe and hopefully, nobody has any structural or water damage.
There are still a few things out on my lawn including all my tombstones. Keeping my fingers crossed that “something” is left standing by Wednesday! We’ll have to see. In the meantime, maybe I’ll bake up some goodies before my electricity goes out. At least they’ll taste better than whatever canned food I may be stuck with!

My other blog, FitnessandFunatFifty.wordpress.com details the completion of my Halloween decorating chores for the day so I won’t repeat it here, however I will say I’m glad I’m finished. Due to the impending storm, some of my other props will remain in the lab, gathering more dust for next year! As it is, I dread the thought of taking in all the lightweight props and decorations once the rain comes!
I managed to take a fairly decent video tonight with my camcorder, complete with some background horror music, fog and the rocking granny/Mrs Bates in action. Once I do a little editing, I’ll post it. It’s a lot nicer than my previous ones, taken with my cellphone and you’ll be able to see it on here, without heading over to YouTube.
Until tomorrow…thanks for perusing. Ciao!
