Poor Mark. If he had taken my Marine Science course, he' have known sharks feed after dark.
I made his tombstone (and Fred's) years ago from 2 inch styrofoam insulation sheeting.
Fred is so forgetful.
I can relate.
There were things about in the dark ...
It's fun to listen to approaching groups of trickortreaters. Many of them were scared here by this pair of monkeys as kids and now they are bringing their kids ... and grandkids for the same scare.
In the dark, they see the dropping monkey pair as a big spider, even though it's two stuffed monkeys attached at the head like some kind of conjoined ape-thing.
Here are the two rascals that operate the tricks and handout the treats. Dad drops the monkey thing for the first scare and then activates an electric leaf blower behind that monster ghost thing to the far left.
The poor kids think they are almost to the candy and are past the scares and have relaxed after the monkey drop.
THAT is when Dad pushes the leaf blower button ...
The white sheet billowing out combined with the noise of the blower sometimes sends them running for cover... parents too.
