Mount Carroll has "Mayfest" every year on this weekend and we should be pretty busy with tourists and people coming back to visit the town and family.
Mayfest is an arts & crafts festival with live music and various venders held on the old Shimer College campus.
I decided I had been away from the art show long enough, I entered a piece of metal sculpture made from numerous pieces of old rusty, odd junk, I call it "The Post-Victorian Birdhouse".
One of the first people to see it today remarked:"That looks like something Tim Burton would do." (Since I'm older maybe he has been copying ME!? hahahah! Where's my 7 picture movie deal?)
Exhibiting there jogs some people's memory that I'm "Here" and does inspire some old patrons to stop and see the house again.

I'll be filling in on bass for a honky-tonk band that's going on a mini-tour though the low country of SC. (Charleston and Savannah)

I'll be working on Haunted Overload.
Much to do due to the move!

Taking the family to the Omaha Zoo. A much needed break from work and the haunt. Hope everyone has a save and enjoyable holiday.

It's my anniversary, 24 years. Yeah, I know, I can't believe it either... Besides going to dinner I will be working on the haunt. Right now I molding skeleton heads to glue to the outside of the concession stand, after all it is "The Boneyard Bistro" . Hopefully I will have it done this weekend. What time did you say you were coming to help Shane? I want to make sure to have dinner ready!!! Anyway "Happy Hoilday" to everyone!! Be safe!

The ball season is in force. One game tonight of sons before we go out to eat with friends. Had season tickets for the last indoor football game of the year, but the opposing team folded, sowe are heading to a comdey club. Daughters have a dance recital going th, fr, and sat. Dad's turn to see it Sat. Working Sat and Sun on day job, watching some of Indy 500 and Nascar race. Then heading for initial night in motorhome at buddy's campground.
Pic is of the innocent age we all used to be. My daughter is on the left. Remember when everything was so simple that meeting new friends and spending time with them was all we had to do?

Same thing I do every Memorial Day... work on Fear Fair...
05-28-2010, 10:00 AM

haunted ship walk-thru attraction at MOREY'S PIER. Saw it on TV looked great! Lots of detail, props, big time in your face live actors, and animatronics galore. Wonder if Uncle Larry or Jim Kelly was called in on a consultation on this one. Can't wait to see it. Oh ya, ADMISSION- $9 like baskin- robbins ice cream says, "costs more, but worth it". We'll see....
05-28-2010, 05:18 PM
Chuck is that attraction new? There is the 3d pirate themed "boat" ride that Larry's company did several years ago but I don't know of this attraction.
I grew up going to Wilwood, been there 100 times easily. Where are you staying?
05-28-2010, 08:44 PM
worked on this project or not..... but...... it has his look all over it..... detailed to the max, etc. I saw it on the channel 6 news here on thursday at noon. The ship has a name, but I forget it. Definately MOREY'S PIER though...... My plans are not finalized totally yet, but I either stay at the Heart of Wildwood or THE PALMS motel.... Overnight will definately be a last minute decision. 106 miles (each way) is not too bad for me (driving-wise). I also heard that the LOST MINE roller coaster on the old hunt's pier is finally gone. too bad. that was a classic. for some reason, the pirate theme is big in wildwood. I guess with the ocean right there, its a perfect fit. Good luck with your haunt this year, man. I visited in 2002 in the mall parking lot, and it was awesome! take care.

I will be trying to come up with a new name 4 my haunt
05-28-2010, 10:25 PM

Was in a baseball tournament but got knocked out and I thought we would win it... if anyone has been wondering where I've been I'm working on an all new THIRD haunted house, playing lots of baseball, and working on updating my websites.
I also saw Prince of Persia (nothing special) Shrek (nothing special) and will have a BBQ today... anyone and everyone on this forum is invited that is if you can make it on such short notice! LOL
Now off to cut the grass.
05-31-2010, 10:37 AM
You should have cut the grass 2 weeks ago today your supposed to be grilling! What if the bus pulls up will you share a steak? Shane and its have a good Holiday! Shane this time!
05-31-2010, 10:56 AM

On a perfectly nice day you are inside on Memorial day reading posts on hauntworld. We just can't get enough... now its off to the grass. I think.

Drinking a few beers. What a weekend! lol
06-01-2010, 06:36 AM
I went to a cool antique place/cider mill with my wife and Bill. That and I had to reformat my computer. Also, I dinged 80 over the weekend but I doubt anyone knows what that means.
Larry, you should give these people more advance notice for your July 4th bbq. Just messing with you :).
06-01-2010, 07:01 AM
For the Horde!!
06-01-2010, 07:25 AM
I stand corrected :).

Went to Scarborough Fair, ate dinner at the haunted Catfish Plantation and visited a few cemeteries.
