The first order of business will be trying to find all the food they have stashed away over the last couple of weeks. Two huge pallets of water have been delivered from Costco, amounting to well over 4800 bottles. Same goes for soda and snow cone syrup.
Although I was expecting some changes in the snack bar area, it didn't happen. We will still have to drag all of that water, and the two tons of ice required to keep things cold, 50 yards to the barn. That's where I get my muscles every year.
I almost finished unloading the rig of my quilting material. There are still two big bins left. I don't understand ... every time I turned around in there I found another container. Where did all this stuff come from?
For those of you taking pictures of your grandchildren dressed in all their Halloween finery, here's a couple of tips. I'm posting this only because I spotted it yesterday, having been taken by a professional photographer. Always ... ALWAYS ... look behind your subject. I know this is a fabulous background, set up specifically for these images.
Unfortunately, this little girl has two big spikes coming out of her head. Trust me, I've made this mistake many times. It's usually a tree limb coming from their ear. You get so focused in on the subject's face, you forget what's behind.
Here's another one. Yes, that's a football (look very closely) coming out of his head, but at first glance, it looks like a screw. A BIG screw!! Its a common problem .. we've all done it. That's why I mention it so YOU don't do the same thing. Happy Halloween picture taking!
So I'm off ... in about four hours ... to get the ball rolling and the snack bar filled. I expect most of the day I will just be organizing the food containers and spiffing things up. I'm sure my MAIN attention will go to these guys. These goats are so darn cute!!!!
I'm putting on my pumpkin shirt and my sneakers and heading out ... in the Jeep. Yes, my trusty pickup has not one, but TWO dead batteries. I plugged in my battery charger, but I don't have much faith it will work. Geez ... I just replaced those batteries last year to the tune of $450. This time I'll ask if they can install a disconnect. I looked it up, but I'm not sure I trust my mechanical skills. C'est la vie!!!
I'm OFF to the Patch!!
