Mac'n on Halloween

So it appears our very own MacDaddy is about to become a little bit of a local celebrity, or at least his house is.

For those of you who don't know Mac, and I would assume that would be the vast majority of my limited readership, all you need to know about him is that he loves Halloween (and movies, but that's a topic for another time). And by love I don't mean, he likes to hand out treats and dress up a little, no, I mean the kind of love that shows itself all year round. The kind of love that causes him to smile after buying their new house because "he would finally have a real lawn to decorate" come October (they bought their house in December). The kind of love that for the past nine years has motivated him to throw a themed Halloween party no matter what his current living situation (when his apartment was too small to hold enough people he actually went out and booked local bars and decorated them himself). The kind of love that makes a man begin decorating his property with an entire graveyard scene, including giant spider and web, beginning the first week in October. You know, true love.

It is actually that last thing that is the reason for his sudden celebrity. Apparently the local CTV station is going to be broadcasting from his lawn this evening for the local weather report. I'm not sure if any of the Mac family will be making an appearance on camera, but trust me, if you live in the Ottawa area and can tune to channel 7 between 6:00 and 7:00 this evening you'll see something to bring a smile to your face. Hey, and if we're really lucky, his neighbour might just choose that time to invade Macland with his army of motorized tanks and G.I Joe men.
