A lot of pictures on this site were hosted on Photobucket before they disabled photo embedding. If you'd like to see pictures for a particular post, please let me know, and I'll prioritize getting those images fixed next!

I took advantage of the 3-day weekend to finally put everything (and everybody--get it? every body?  bodies? corpses? ha ha ha....yeah, okay) where it belongs for the rest of the off season.  We put everything in the driveway and put it properly away one by one.

If you recall, this is what my backyard looked like on November 1, and that's pretty much how it stayed for the next couple of months while other things took priority.  Now...

My Dad built these 3 cabinets in the garage that house almost everything

All the lights, fixtures, extension cords, foggers, and miscellaneous small props on the right.

All my full size characters in the middle

And all Three Laboratory animatronics (plus some extra foam and my bucky) on the far left.

But what about the Giant Rusty Gear of Doom?

It was just too cool to put away for the rest of the year  ;)

An Experiment

If you read this, please leave a comment.

"read it" will do just fine.
You don't need any kind of account to comment-- you can even be anonymous.

I can see how many visits this blog gets, but I've often wondered how many people actually read the posts, enlarge the pictures, and watch the videos.  So, if you've looked at anything here (heck, even if this is the first post here you've seen), leave a comment on this post.  I think it will be interesting to see how many actual people there are.
