Happy Halloween


This years pumpkin offering by John, the newly appointed "Pumpkin Artist" according to one Trick or Treater tonight. He asked who had made it and how long it took and then asked me if he was an artist. I said he was an engineer and he said he should be a "Pumpkin Artist" as they were cool. The other year a group of lads knocked, just to tell us that we had "Mental Pumpkins Man!"

Halloween is not something we did as kids. We just didn't have it back then!! A pumpkin was something you saw on TV not in the shops and to make a lantern we (tried) to carve turnips!!
In the last 10 years or so it seems to have really become big business and now everyone has jumped on the band wagon to make more money.
Here's John hard at work being artistic!! Note the design, sellotaped to the front so he knows where to cut!!!

Samuel (aka the Armless Zombie) and a load of his pals decided to go out tonight as it's probably their last year of doing it. It was good to see them all dressed up and enjoying themselves. I think kids grow up too quickly these days. You're a long time as an adult so make the most of being a kid.
Just look at this lot.................................................................................................................................
He came home with a bag full of sweets, crisps and nuts. People are very generous but I just think of how many E numbers and how much teeth scrubbing will be involved :)

  3. Love the pumpkin artist's work. Funnily enough we were having the turnip conversation last night as well. Pumpkins are much easier.

  4. Brilliant photos! Get them scrapped if it might be the last time! (I'm on here just now because your DN is having a tantrum and I'm trying to ignore it!)
