Ah... it's that time of year again. The time where I have severely overestimated the time I have left before "Halloween". The countdown says 67 days until Halloween... but I forget about the part where I start setting up about three weeks before Halloween. So subtract about 21 days from that number. My list of things that I have left to do isn't too bad, just time consuming. Here's a little sample...
*Finish building and painting at least five more groundbreakers.
*Re-paint old graveyard fence columns from last year to "darken" them up a little.
*Re-paint three mudman props from last year to make them a little better looking.
*Finish a few more flickering lanterns.
*Make a new sign for my scarecrow.
*Make a new head for my scarecrow.
*Make things to hang on the windows to make them look boarded up.
*Make a couple more Bucky corpses. (Don't know if that will happen this year)
*Put new pneumatics in my "shaking coffin".
*Put a pneumatic lid opener on another coffin.
*Make a couple of other signs, one with my theme name, one to hang at the top of the road.
*Finish engraving and then paint 20 new tombstones that I have for the graveyard.
*Finish my "Apparition" prop.
*Hope that my pumpkin plants start producing some pumpkins... I have some nice looking vines, but no pumpkins yet.
Well, that's most of it at least. Halloween will be here before I know it.
