In the meantime, how about some Halloween videos?

 

My friend Ruth Henry, who you all knew here as “Peanut” passed away on October 24th 2015. She was always there to help me with Halloween and there was never a Halloween that went by when she wasn’t with me. This year her Daughter stopped by with Peanut’s Granddaughter, who is a clone of Peanut. This year I also had a young 13 year old girl from Haiti who goes by the name of Peanut who came over to help scare folks. Peanut is back!

The videos have additional information in the write-ups at YouTube.

    God willing there will be a Pro Wrestling show here shortly.

    The distressed finish on my house is as a result of getting it ready to paint. I had a hardcore pressure washing job done. Notice the lack of fluorescent black light strips in the eaves. That’s because I had to take them down.

    I got a pile of programmable color changing LED floodlights on Amazon for $43 each. I got them for the Pro Wrestling Show back in September knowing that I would be using them at Halloween. I never missed the black lights. I had hoped that they would have provided better lighting of my victims.

    BTW… I met RD in Lake City, Florida today. He was on his way back home. We talked about lots of stuff that matters.

    Yeah, I missed the news about a bunch of people getting shot at Church in Texas today. I apologize if this publication seems insensitive. After I left RD I went to Miccosukee to get a pile of the best sausage available in the State of Florida and have been on the road all day.

      I ended up going through Alabama and made it as far as Clarksville Tennessee. I’m here at the Best Western this morning getting ready to hit the road again for another 8 to 10 hours of deadhead driving.

      If you are curious why, my folks took their Iowa pickup truck down to South Florida following hurricane Irma. I volunteered to fly down and bring the pickup and some stuff they took down that they don’t need down there back to Iowa. I didn’t really expect them to take me up on it but they did so here I am living the life of a long-haul driver. πŸ™‚

      I hadn’t seen Brad face-to-face since we were in Branson. It was great to see him and Little Miss Texas again. We had a wonderful lunch, talked a lot and basically shared the love.

      The 10 Watt, 16 Color, IP66 rated programmable LED floodlights on the tombstones were only $13.98ea. on Amazon. The ones for $43 each are 50 Watt units. I am using them for washing the walls with color and doing the landscape lighting. Those light fixtures are one heck of a value. All I have to do is change their colors and I’m ready for Christmas. I’ll put out my Star Shower and some stuff in the bushes and on the fence but after that I’m done. Those floodlights are going to get hard wired in. I’ll be decorated for every holiday with a simple color selection passed on via hand held remote control.

    Those kids are going to remember you for a long, long time Brad. That is some good fun right there.

    • MadBrad says:

      I’ve said it many times… Love is eternal. Those kids know they are loved. They will remember what it feels like to be loved like that all of their lives, just like you said. In some way or another at some point in their lives they are going to want to share that Love with others. It is something you want to pass on. You want the world to be a better place and in your own mind back in the day when you were a kid the world WAS a better place. So you start reaching for those things that make you feel like a kid again and you try to share them with others. When the kids in this video are grown adults they will always know that there is one night out of the year when they can feel like a kid again. They will remember what was important to them as kids on Halloween night. They will do what I do. They will decorate their house. They will buy some candy, put on a costume and make kids scream. The kids they make scream will grow up to make other kids scream.

      Love is eternal and that’s just more living proof of it.

      I’ll still be part of making kids scream on Halloween long after I have departed this earthly existence.

    Dude that was sooooo Awesome!

    It reminded me of something from my mid-20’s when I was getting my Associates Degree in EMS in pursuit of becoming a Paramedic. I found a job working for a company who did mostly convalescent transports. All you had to have was your Basic EMT to work there, it payed pretty good and I was on call almost every night while I was working my way through the 2 year program. Needless to say there were many nights when I got ZERO sleep (sometimes for more than a night or two) but I digress.

    The company had a contract with Central Prison in Raleigh and we would transport Death Row Graduates to the morgue when the deed was done. I was one of the two partners assigned that duty on several occasions. It never bothered me as I had been exposed to many freshly dead (and not so freshly dead) corpses during my training. If anyone knows the true smell of a long dead body then you know that’s the kind of stink that doesn’t wash off. It ‘wears off’ over the course of days… but again i digress.

    What was always funny to me is when we would have a body in a bag on the gurney and go to get on the elevator… almost without fail… if there were people on the elevator they would get off whether it was their floor or not. Then during the ride, if the elevator stopped before the bottom floor (the morgue), many many people would not get on the elevator with us even though there was plenty of room (as we had usually already emptied it of other passengers when we boarded).

    Most of the folks who worked at the hospital didn’t mind and would even ask questions about the demise of the departed during the ride but… I can count on one hand how many ‘civilians’ rode the elevators with us when we had a loaded body bag.

    I suppose there were some personal superstitions involved in that experience but it always made me (and my partner) giggle a bit. Certainly nothing to fear there but as your videos reminded me… fear can be as abstruse as our present state of ‘gender qualifiers’.

    MadBrad, how cool that kin of Peanut and Peanut ver1.0 were there for Halloween. Very nice. And BTW, you have a voice that exudes kindness … which I’m sure some of those kids appreciated.
