How was everyone's Halloween?

Weather here was perfect and the neighborhood was really lively this year. Took the kiddos out to work their magic getting me candy. :D

I think the wife said we got 10 trick or treaters. I guess not many want to come down in the swamp at night.

People don't trick-or-treat in the complex where I live because of the security doors on the buildings. We went to visit a former neighbor where we used to live and passed out treats there. We had 54 hits in exceptionally warm weather.

We had a pretty slow Halloween. Usually, it's a very big deal for us. We have two strobes, two fog machines, wood headstones, and hundreds of dollars worth of realistic body parts and masks, but just didn't feel like decorating this year. And there weren't as many kids as usual either. But we did 14 pumpkins this year:



In case anyone is wondering what happens to the pumpkins after Halloween, it's simple. Two got stolen, (as expected) several go in the compost bin, and the rest got shot up. Here's Desi trying the 12 gauge on a pumpkin:

We live in the sticks, up a steep hill back a ways from the road, we don't get any trick or treaters. We just chilled and watched the ball game. I usually don't even carve a pumpkin but had an idea in my head this year so I bought a big one and carved it up.

I bought an old explorer a while back for the axle and ended up getting someother parts. the driver's side airbag will be put in the pumpkin. I will post up the video. I still haven't decided what I am going to do with the passenger's side one.

Here is a pic of my pumpkin. It took about an hour to carve, It was a real thick one and I didn't shave it down much so I had a lot to cut through. By the time I decided I should have thinned it out it was to late so I just went with it. It only broke in one spot and a toothpick fixed it so no big deal. It is based on the grill of the greatest jeep ever manufactured the jeep wrangler YJ with rectangular headlights.:D

Assuming that's public land I'm jealous. Here in Texas we have no public land like that. To go test a new gun or shoot real quick for fun unless you have access to a private ranch is a hassle and costly.

It's unincorporated public land, and it's maybe 20-30 minutes from me. There are closer places, plus an indoor range, but this is where we take our pumpkins.

Went good . My kid learned to say trick or treat. That was exciting. Then I ate all her candy. That was even more exciting. You forget how much you like things like dots or three musketeers until a stranger gives them to you at your request.
