Curiouser and Curiouser

I found myself with a few hours in the days before Halloween, so I decided to set up the wishing well prop from the film I just finished next to my Haunted Tombstone (a new one that I just put together out the morning of Halloween (I'm telling you, it doesn't get any easier than this!)).  I also hung up the Halloween windsocks from an old friend.  I may not have had time for a full haunt, but at least I could pass out candy.

I'd say we had about 10 trick-or-treaters, but we heard another 20 kids walk right by throughout the night without knocking.  I don't know how normal these numbers are for homes that don't go all out like I used to, but three or four other houses on our street got really into the decorations, and there are plenty of kids who live on the street.  I tried different configurations of porch light, strobe light, sound effects.  Nothing seemed to make a difference.  It felt like an episode of The Twilight Zone: The Halloween No One Knocked.

Incidentally, I need to get rid of this wishing well.  Shoot me an email if you'd like to have it.
