The Bad + The Good + The Bad Again:
We should be on build week 4 by now don’t ya think? Unfortunately crap happens and you just have to sit and take it. Two weeks ago my old car finally blew its timing belt. I had just been to the mechanic that week and he told me it would cost $1300 bucks to replace it (they have to pull the engine and all that). I decided it’s time to put that car to rest. Sigh. So many good memories. However, we must move on and so I’d like to introduce the new haunt mobile.
It’s a Honda Element. It has a lot of cargo room, and you can flip the seats up out of the way. It has a rubber floor which is good for the times when you don’t get those paint lids on tight or you have some great stuff on your shoes. So yay new car but boo to new car payments.
I’ll blame this last week on Father’s day and the two Dads who stole away my haunt crew.
Something good did happen that has no downsides, yet. The mailman delivered our Golden Skull trophy we won in the Haunters Video contest. It looks awesome and is heavy like a bowling ball. It is proudly displayed at Patty’s house so everyone can enjoy it and get motivated to build an even more awesome haunt this year. Thanks to the Haunt Award organizers for this great prize.
Next weekend should be pretty rad as we will be building our carousel. That’s a big project. See ya then!
