Well, these are from last year. The image quality isn't that great, since I'm still getting the hang of the darkness-shooting-toward-the-light thing. And they weren't freestyle; we used a kit. :D

That was pretty much my reaction when I got it in an email. I think that'll be my costume this year.

YEEESH! I will never look at another pumpkin the same way EVER again.

Now this is probably gonna inspire Weird Al Yankovic to do a parody of Sir-Mix-A-Lot's song...

"I like big pumpkins and I cannot lie..."

RE: Jack 'O Lantern Pix!!

I've been meaning to carve a pumpkin to post here but unfortunately that outlook is now very grim due to an uninspected visit by our latest pond predator. :-(

Outlook is very grim!! LOL! I don't think a scarecrow sprayer is going to work on that one...or a dog, a net, you name it.

If he moves, and the trick-er-treaters are walking by....oh, such fun! Hehehehe.

LMAO!!! It takes a big man to admit his shortfalls, Fi guy. :D

We're carving pumps tomorrow! Hope to see pics of yours, 'Poo!

Poo3, that's the king & queen bench I designed and built earlier this fall out of Spanish Cedar (a very neat hardwood). It's part of the pond deck which has a garden chess theme.

Well, I tried to carve a pumpkin this weekend, but as I was removing some pumpkin chunks (after about 2 hours worth of getting the seeds out and scraping, outlining, carving, etc.), the "face" had a blowout. Everyone kept suggesting toothpicks as a way to perform surgery on it, but I lost all of my Halloween spirit at that point. *sigh*

Grandson Jonah didn't want any part of the seeds/innards, either. LOL I can't say I blame him. They're pretty gross. :D

I do have a link below with images of some awesome pumpkin pics, though, that were sent to me via email! Creativity galore! :)

Here is a link that might be useful: Pic 1 of...thirteen. Hope this works.

RE: Jack 'O Lantern Pix!!

Oh Wow, Mark, I suspected as much. It's really unique. I can never find anything with character in the stores. (Rustic, yet with charm) It's for my garden/pond area. I've been looking for 3 yrs and have thought many times to try to build one. Yeah, I could try...but afterward I'm afraid some unsuspecting visitor may find themselves LAYING ON the garden! lol

And that's a bad thing??? Remember, we all need a good laugh now and again! 8-)
