Halloween Countdown Report 5

"A place where there isn't any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It's far, far away. Behind the moon, beyond the rain... "  - Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz

  1. Wow, you guys really go all out for Halloween. This is amazing.

  2. It would be awesome to have you as a neighbor! We also put on a big Halloween bash for the kids in our neck of the woods, or I should say red-neck of the woods.
