A Haunting On Dice Road: The Hell House

We bought Small Town Monsters' Invasion on Chestnut Ridge this morning to watch tonight, and while on amazon I spotted this gem available for streaming with Amazon Prime.  Dear God does it look great...going to watch this as well.

Porch Decor

The pre-Halloween "normal" decorations...
Put up the ol' scarecrow from the 2014 display and added some more lights to the garden.

Speaking Of Weather...

I realize that anything in the Not Raining spectrum is what we Haunters/Lovers of Halloween want, but if you could hand-pick your weather for Halloween day/night, what would it be?

Me... during the day, in the 50's, completely overcast and semi-gloomy.
At night?  Some clearing, but with large dark clouds floating across a pale watching moon...probably in the high 50's...light wind.

This would work just fine...

Weather Worries

WHY do they even put out a "Month" weather calendar?
Makes absolutely no sense.  NONE.
Though I was still relieved to find that it's going to be amazing weather on Halloween (though I was hoping for more clouds)...

The Great Pumpkin Project

Still planning on where to place our pumpkin this year, but there's a ton of activity on the Warts and All... blog.

Happy Friday The 13th

The Wreath Witch Curse

I work in a very large department...  not that many people, but a giant work area with a lot of unused space.  The entire building is getting refurbished one department at a time, and our old outdated vile wing was asked to consolidate itself onto one side of the wing while visiting departments can inhabit the empty side while their department wings were being stripped down and refurbished.  So it's been a couple years of new neighbors showing up every few months.  It's like getting to know and being annoyed at horrible neighbors/tenants moving in next to your home many times a year.  And knowing they're moving on to nicer homes/apartments and you're still stuck in your old one til God-knows-when.

Early this week, one of the women on the new side, without getting permission or taking a poll, hung something like this wreath (this is actually way nicer so I suspect she might have made hers).

She hung it on the two giant automated doors at the entrance of our department (important to note she hung it on the door on OUR side of the wing).  There was great hooting and hollering on the day she brought it in and I heard her say many times "I LOVE HALLOWEEN!" (I think I might have hissed like a vampire seeing a cross).

Well, four people asked me this week:  "You put that wreath up?"

THAT wreath....the one with the striped witch legs and tiny glittery witch hat and clumps of shiny silver tulle.

Terror In The Woods: Tonight

Set your wood-paneled VCRs for this one.
We just watched the teaser on Xfinity and I think I might be hooked.
Good silly narration...more in the style of Paranormal Witness.

And after you watch the clip into the comments of this entry for what they see on the's not even paranormal...and it's terrifying.

Super Cool Low-Cost Concept

Such a great idea...
