LOL! Paul that is too funny. I love Halloween! I'm trying to get something creepy together to put at the end of my driveway, like a hanged person or something. I've done the witch that flew into the tree before. Any ideas?

The best one is to set a dummy in a chair w/ a bowl of candy. Dummy is real person who scares the crap out of someone when they come to get candy.

or can just sit still when lil ones approach.

My buddy is an iron worker to set the scene. A few weeks before the big day he put together a stuffed dummy in a chair on the porch wearing wore out work cloths and a welding hood. That night after dark came he switched out the dummy for himself dressed in some worn and torn old work cloths and the same weld hood. He sat waiting for the little ones with a bowl of candy in his lap. Some poor ol guy trying to help out his kid reached in the bowl and my buddy quietly reached and touched the gentleman's arm. Oh Boy that poor guy about messed his pants. Then he was mad as a wet cat. It took a few minutes but he calmed down and admitted it was a pretty good prank.

Saw one on funny vids where the guy was hanged, but the man he scared squared off and gave him a right hook in the chops.

LOL! I saw that on AFV Tom. I can't really do anything like that because I don't get trick or treaters, too far out in the country and I have a long spooky drive-way. I was thinking about setting up something at the end of the drive-way, but don't know what.

when i was a teenager ( MANY years ago) one of the older guys in the neighborhood set up a full battle scene in his front yard . Flash pots w/ black powder and all the battle sound effects. had the yard roped off and when ever someone walked down the sidewalk he would set off the tape and a few flash pots. He made the local news and the paper.

LOL Pokey! That's funny! I'm heading to the end of the driveway to mow some grass, I'll take my camera and take a pic so you guys can have a visual, that guy hanging would work, I was thinking about a noose or something, but I'd have to put some kind of light there so when people passed by they could see it. You'll get a better visual when I post a pic. This is fun, I love all the brainstorming! Thanks for your help! Thanks Paul for posting this!

The lighting is so easy now with all the solar stuff. Just got a couple of solar spots for my palms that work great -

You might want to mow a little extra so wayward drivers can get back on the road after goin into the ditch lookin at your display

Hey Gary, I was wondering if someone wrecked could they sue me? I mean, crap I hope not. Anyway, here's some pictures of what I have to work with. I waited for a car to come by to give a better visual. I know we can come up with something super creepy!





I thought about maybe a gigantic spider web with a gigantic spider blocking my driveway, but I don't know where I would get a huge spider. It would be cool if the spider was eating a person too. with some sort of lighting.
