    I did that once with the riding mower, I set it up by the door, and made a body and put sticking out under the deck, made blood and guts all over the side of the tractor, it was pretty sweet looking.

    The hood is just open a bit to provide air flow for the fog machine inside and the strobe light

    I thought about business cards or a flier along with the candy but decided that would just be too much...lol...

    Sorry, I don't know what flag you are referring to.

    Oh now I see what you are referring too, those aren't flags, they are supposed to be fangs or teeth...you can see the big yellow eyes in the truck windshield...

    That must have looked great, I'm glad you didn't hand out your cards. There is a company that does that up here and I find it just as annoying as telemarketers.

    I'm sorry, and I know its all in fun but I thought it was tacky! The truck looked good but the guy under the plow blade....I though that was a little over the top. I'm sure the kids and parents will remember you but for all the wrong reasons. I just think little kids don't need to see a guy chopped in half. Sorry.:rolleyes:

    Well, we thought about that but all we got was great feed back on it. People were posing the their kids in front of it for pictures and everything. A couple of ladies even came back later with their husbands to see it.

    Every one is entitled to their opinion and I respect yours Brain, and I take no offense, I am just curious, though, (this is going to sound like I am trying to be a smart @#$! with you but I am not so don't take it that way) Do you have the same opinion when you see a kid with a fake hatchet sticking out of his head and blood dripping down, or when you see those effigies hanging in a noose from someones front porch, or any of those other whacked out costumes that have blood and guts all over them?

    It seems people around here aren't into Halloween the way they used to be, so our place stood out and was a hit around here. What has everyone else found, is Halloween becoming a thing of the past?

    I think it looks great. If people can't take a joke like that then they have some problems. I think that having a body under the plow atleast would make some people think to be careful around plows and while they are plowing, I know it would for me. Good public safety warning lol!

    You know what's funny guys, I was saying stuff like that from behind my mask to the trick or treaters all night long...I would hand them some candy and in a spooky voice (or my impression of one) I would say...remember kids, play safe when plows are around...or something along those lines, the parents usually laughed at that.
