Day 31 - Happy Halloween!!!

Ooops!  Sorry I had this scheduled to post but didn't make the video until tonight!

Day 28, Tillson Street continued, part 2

 OK, for some reason these loaded backwards!  Oh well. 
This is the dentist office at the end of Tillson Street - directly across from the Dairy Queen.
The license plate on the hearse is W8N4U and apparently the Spouse's geek-ness has rubbed off on me, since the first time I saw that I thought for a second it was a ham radio call sign. 
When I drove thru the neighorhodd in late September (they don't start setting up until October 1) the only thing I saw was this skeleton (without the political banner)
This is one of my favorite houses.  In the past they've done a hockey rink with a real Zamboni and boards, etc.  This is really cool, too.  The next 9 pics go with it. 
It's hard to see in daylight, but in the upper right window, there's a mannequin wearing bikini bottoms and tassles.  As we walked (shuffled slowly I mean) thru with the family, some younger teenaged boys were pointing and asking me what that was.  I'm sure they were trying to be funny, but I told them if they didn't know what boobs were, then they needed to go have a birds & bees chat with their parents, not a total stranger. 
There are all local football teams. 
The giant mask is neat.
This house must be sold now - the Century 21 sign is gone. 
The only house that's made no effort.  Booo

That's it, I promise no more Tillson St!

Day 28 - Tillson Street (again)

Yes, I know I've already done a Tillson Street post, but I'd gone there back on 10/10 so there weren't many houses fully decorated.  NOW they are.  Some of the pics you may have seen from before.

btw, there won't be any nighttime shots since I went there with the family - and approximately 17 million other people.  It seriously is NOT fun (in my opinion) to go to Tillson Street at night close to Halloween, since so many other people also go - there are literally people 4 or more deep along the sidewalks, barely moving.  Plus people walking on that strip of lawn between the sidewalk & street - and out in the street.  An ambulance was trying to make his way down the street with lights going, and people wouldn't move!!  It's insane.  That's also why I wouldn't ever want to live there, as cool as the thought may be.  Homeowners couldn't pull into their own driveways!

Carrying on....
I'm surprised there weren't more UofM / State things since the big rivalry game is this weekend!
This house doesn't have much of a front yard, but they're slowly adding more things each year. 
The next 5 pics go with this one.  They did a Grimm Fairy Tales Gone Wrong kind of theme.  
Super cool.
I hope a real person hides in here on Halloween!
The next 7 go with this one.  They do this cool masquerade ball every year with really interesting characters. 
The silver & gold show girls are new!
The aerial artists spin around.
I've never seen this house decorated!  Maybe the new owners will. 
They always do a Wizard of Oz theme.
This is one of my favorites.  
Skeletons doing regular stuff crack me up!
Here's the other Beetleguise house. 
Both mannequins they have really look like Lydia, too!
I hope these guys are OK - it looks like they started to set up, but didn't finish.  
They usually have a theater theme.
to be continued!
