And So It Begins…. Mwaaaahahahahaaaaaaaa

I may have a green thumb in the backyard, but this time of year out in front of the house the digit is aaaaaall black, as evidenced by this year’s earlier-than-usual crop of ghouls I just finished planting in the ivy. Six feet under, of course (click to biggify).

Typically I wait until the week before Halloween before I start spookifying the place, but others on our block have started early, and you know me: always have to keep up with the Boneses!

PS. For a taste of what things will pretty much look like when everything’s up, check out my Flickr set of last year’s ghoul daze.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
