Each year, we get together with some friends and carve pumpkins. In fact, I have written about my pumpkin carving hobby for the past few years... Our friends in Alabama really got me fired up about carving pumpkins two years ago. Ever since then... I'm addicted! Here are my previous posts:

Most of the crew tonight had not done "advanced" carving and a few of them got a little frustrated. I even got a little "bent out of shape" carving the Tiger!
The class clown of the group was Doug... He did not carve a pumpkin, but he had a saw and knife with him. I never figured out why he was carrying the supplies to carve a pumpkin, but did not carve one????... He was really good at cutting the holes though!
If you have never done "advanced" pumpkin carving... I challenge you to do it this year! If you carve something cool, email the picture to me. If it is good, I'll show it on air. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Photo Tip--- Light the pumpkin and take the picture in complete darkness with no flash.
