      You are correct on that one....I always got a hole in mine...from dragging it when it got too full.

      So that is what I see every Halloween in the road - bumpy - lumpy sheets :-)

      Thanks!! I remember wearing this homemade costume....as i went trick or treating..the eye holes kept on moving around....then I kept on stepping on the edges of the bottom of costume as I walked up front porches. It's funny as to what you remember:)
