WOW, great job. I really like the ghosts moving. Our yard doesn't lend it self to do anything like that. I sure wish it did. I am sure you will give all the neighbors a run for the money on the competition.

WOW, very impressive. I am hoping to add some items using wiper motors to my Christmas display for 2012. I may hit you up for some pointers when I get closer.

yes it was terrible... power went out on sat and just came back on yesterday afternoon.. was a tough week for sure.. feel bad for all those around me without generators which we are lucky to have.. she is old but works.. was a lot easier on us.. we have a bunch of things to repair or have to toss.. but glad it was not worse
