Death has a hard job. Can you imagine wearing that long black cloak all the time, even in the summer? And try getting into elevators and taxicabs with that scythe! Not to mention the trouble when things go horribly, hilariously, wrong…
The question I’m most asked is “How do you make your tombstones?”
Actually, I’m most asked “Where do you store all this stuff?” (in the attic above the garage), and “Why does your wife put up with you?” (She loves me, as challenging as that may be). But a close third-place is people asking about the tombstones.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been pulling decorations out of the attic and trying to find time to put everything up before the big night. One of the first things to go up were the window decorations. Nothing particularly spooky about these, I just think they look cool. Black and orange are the traditional colors of Halloween, and I like having the entryway in these colors.

But the employees were falling over me as I got down onthe floor to get close-ups of the Cat Skeleton. So I decided to split these pictures into 2 parts. I’ll post more after the shelves are fully stocked (and I’m not tripping Target employees). So here we go….
Took a quick jaunt to our local Targetstore to see if any of the Halloween merchandise was up (it wasn’t). So I meandered next door to browse through Dollar Tree. Last time I was there, they only had a few items, but they are fully stocked now. Here’s a grave full of pictures for you:
