Today if you did it the parents would throw out the food and call in a police SWAT team to haul you in for questioning. Different times.
Wow. It sounds like you grew up by me. We also had that house to go to. We would sometimes have a hay wagon ride to get there with the neighborhood children. Fun times. Things are so different now.

CraigC, I had a chance to explore your website further, and I gotta tell you, it is impressive! I couldn't get Marie to load her video, but your decor and pumpkin carving skills are fantastic! Wow!

Thanks! Most of the carvings were done by my wife Karen. She has a lot more patience than I do. Do you see the player on the page or is the link just not working at all?

Try this link to the whole page:

I didn't see a player. I clicked all over.

Years ago, I found similar plans for building a Marie, was yours the original? She's gorgeous!

Will have to check it out on the laptop, am on the Ipad. Thanks!

After you click on the ghost, the next page comes up, but it only shows the "script" for the video. No clickable link.

I always buy candy that we like, in case we don't get trick or treaters.

I try to buy candy we don't like. Same reason! Then I can hand it out at school later.

I put out enough to let kids know they're welcome here. But it seems Halloween has turned into more adults than kids!
