Video production update: preparing to shoot.
Scarecrows at midnight.
One night, while I was fooling around with bits of stuff, small monsters began to assemble themselves. Before I realized what was happening, I was outnumbered.

“We are gathered here,”
“On this hallowed night,”

>From The October Country, by Ray Bradbury.

From the sketchbook of Dark Oak Creations. Something to do while on the phone with the government. A true Bat Dropping.
May the wind be at your back.
