I know there are some people here who LOVE Halloween, the wife bought some pumpkins yesterday.

The city has lined the streets with hay bales, corn stalks and pumpkins.  The wife has put this out...Check in later, I have not taken the picture yet. Tongue  So I offer this challenge to (you know who you are).  Do you have a porch?  Could you build a skeleton chair?  Tongue


I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

I couldn't build one, but if someone gave me $170 bucks, I could go to Etsy.com and buy one.

If you want to see some truly bad-ass skull chairs, check this out...

I've been putting up my Halloween stuff for the past couple of days.  Got the fake stone wall put up like last year, but I'm using a different attachment method that works a lot better.

 

Last year I used these blue Loctite mounting putty tabs…


 


They didn't work really great. Kept coming loose. I was constantly having to press them back down or add more, etc. Plus, when I took everything down after the holidays, the stuff left little blue globs stuck to the walls. 

 

So this year, I cut and stuck small squares of Scotch 2" wide, clear packing tape on the back of each panel in the spots I planned to use as mounting points. Then I put a dab of DAP kitchen and bathtub caulk on each tape square and pressed each panel in place, using a small ink roller to really bear down on it, rolling back and forth.

 

They're sticking up there like a champ.

 

After the holidays when I take them back down, because the surface of the tape squares is glossy and smooth, hopefully the set caulk will come off fairly easy and won't tear up the backs of the panels.

 

Got a couple of other little Halloween decor projects going on, too.


Fun, fun, fun.

I just noticed that one of the neighbors' styrofoam gravestone decorations blew over onto my front lawn.  If I choose not to put it back on his lawn, it'll be my only Halloween decoration. 
 
Jimbo, aren't you supposed to post that cartoon of me around this time?  LOL

Would make a good joke.

Put a Trump wig under the hat.

Make little arms coming off of it with a cellphone in its hands, working its tweet thumbs.
