planalp The kid in blue around 2:03 is creepily reminiscent of Danny from The Shining:

planalp Nice carvings, guys! We used to put up a pretty extensive Halloween display in the yard, but then we moved to what's pretty much a dead-end street so hardly any kids come down here. We used to get about 150 trick-or-treaters: now we get about 8.

To this end, we're about the only house in our cul-de-sac that does anything remotely Halloween-ish. Here's our pumpkin carving endeavours for this year:

uk trailer guy Cheers Lockjaw, he was. He was a member of the SBS (Special Boat Service) and a founding member of Comacchio Company. He went over to the US to teach the SEALs (SEAL Team 2, Virginia Beach) about anti-terrorism work - guarding oil rigs, nuclear subs, etc. Died in a diving accident in '82. He was only 30, terrible shame.

I'm still in contact with some of his SEAL buddies, which is really wonderful (one of them became an astronaut!) and I should be over state side, for a visit, catch up and mooch around the SEAL base next year

Lockjaw Well played, UK. Your Dad must have been a tough dude. I used to live in San Diego and knew a lot of SEALS....

planalp My original plan was to find a piece of 1/2" wire rope and kind of "wrap" it around the front of the KLR, fray both ends and put some "No Trespassing" signs on it so it would look like I drove through it and snapped the cable, but that stuff is hard to find. Even scrap cable in a junkyard commands a premium price and the effect wouldn't be right unless it was of a really large diameter. Maybe next year........

Lockjaw Nice! Happy Halloween!

This Year's Costume

Forgot it was right around the corner. Had to work with what I already had in the old Halloween Decorations Tote:
