This is my effort at pumpkin carving this year. Not too bad considering what I had to work with.
Here's what I had to work with:
- a slightly undersized, under ripe pumpkin (it was the biggest homegrown one we had left - I wasn't about to waste valuable bunker money on something as ephemeral as a carved pumpkin)
- a bum left wrist.
- a burned right thumb.
- I forgot to put on my glasses, so I had to squint at the pumpkin the whole time I was carving it...come to think of it, I probably did look slightly pirate-ish.
- I carved it while Danny rewrote his History essay...the one he had just about finished (all but the bibliography)...before the computer died.
If I had had a larger pumpkin, I definitely would have tried something with more scope...possibly Star Wars related. I've been know to carve a mean Darth Vadar.
