I got nothing halloween related :(

Unless you count the ugly leather jacket I got that I plan on using for a costume.

I will probably use some gift money for a subscription to hauntworld though.

I got a vintage piece I have wanted for years. It is the Everlasting Eric animation made by Gag Studios from back in the mid-90's. When they had their fire back in '99(I think it was) this mold was destroyed and never redone.
I feel very fortunate to own this cool piece!

Got several tons of brand new snow to broom and shovel away from exit ramps and front entrance and driveways, Plus digging out two cars, but I fooled Santa I did not succum to a heart attack doing all of this and drop dead in the snow.
Then last night Lucky Jimmie got another big surprise , 9 imches of fresh, clean water all over the wine cellar floor. It hasn't been raining, it's been snowing! ??
Maybe it's a gift from the City Water department? They had a main break a block away, uphill from us last year and nobody knows what subterraineon cisterns and water systems are left in this downtown nieghborhood from 160 years ago.
Just a day or two the room was dry as a bone. It takes a few gallons to put 9inches of water over a room 31 by 16 ft.
I do appreciate a good mystery..once and awhile..but I'm getting bored with this particulair mystery.
When I got the house 22 years ago there was 24inches of fresh, clean-looking water there but then there had been no electricity in the house for the sump pump for 2 years.....
Maybe it's time to look into getting scuba suits to rent to the customers?
One of human's basic fears involves worrying about:"What is under The Water?"
(Along with "What Is Under the Ground"?)
That city water leak last year looked fantastic! The pressure humped the bricks in the street high in the air looking as if some monster was about to burst loose! (Thank you-State Of Illinois for forcing the city to go 3 million in debt and buy that new water tower, making old water lines break.)

I got the scariest gift ever!!! Socks! not just any socks but 24 white socks!!!

I got a very valuable haunt tool. I got a new head light! One of those lights you wear on your forehead for hands free working in dark places. This is an invaluable tool when something breaks down and needs immediate repair during a show. I have went through 2 of those lights in the past 3 years. Everybody should have a head light!

A horror DVD but I got myself a gray top hat and a Jack The Ripper coat, gray also and some black out contacts. Center Stage is closing and everything is 75% off.
