Well, it's down to the wire. One week to go. I feel like I should be running around in a panic. The mood here is strangely calm though. Everything is organized. There's not a ton to do until set up. A bit of photcopying, a few things to purchase and a couple more ghouls to build. Everything seems to be rolling along perfectly.
I had a nice weekend in Vancouver with my parents. We bought my dad tickets to see Kris kristofferson for Father's Day and the concert was last Friday night. We had a great time despite the calamity of errors we went through to actually arrive at the theatre. Forgotten tickets, missed ferries, late ferries and some family drama. I'm glad we made it though as it turns out Mr. Kristofferson was staying in the room across the hall from us and I met him in the hallway. It's odd to stand talking to a man whose music is playing in the background of most of your childhood memories. Funny how things work out sometimes.
If everything keeps going this well until the haunt, then it should be smooth sailing. Thanks again to all the volunteers. I needed 31 and I now have 36. I've never met people so generous with their time. Thanks as well to my neighbours, the Poustie Family and my mother in law, Sandy who have opened their yards and hearts to the haunt and to Cameryn's Cause. It's because they let us add their property to the haunt that we were able to expand it as greatly as we have.
I'm not sure that I'll post again until after the haunt. Wish me and the haunt crew luck! See you all on the 24th and 25th!
For now I'll leave you with a photo of a certain 74 year old handsome devil.
