It's Finally Here!!!!

Today's the day, today's the day, today's the day, today's the day, today's the day!

Ahh it's Halloween. Last night was spent preparing the pumpkins for their grisly fate. When else do you get to gut something and hack patterns into it's face. Yeah, yeah, we've all got a relative or two that we'd like to do it to, but I'm talking about no police charges and less family backlash.

This year I had to mix things up a little and soften up a few pumkins' subject matter since little kids like little kids stuff. Since my daughter is actually aware of Halloween this year and keeps asking for a pumpkin with eyes nose and mouth I make ye olde traditional lantern.

With that aside, I tackled something a little more time consuming that I think she'll like. For the parents with little ones among you, you likely know who these two are.

It was time to move on to the more fun stuff. I figured that the whole pirate thing was getting bigger so it was time for a pirate skull.

After that it was time to throw something in there in homage to my favourtie zombie movie of recent time.

Happy Halloween all! There were rumblings of a zombie related incident in town so when I get more details I'll toss the info up for everyone.

zombies? where??
The most along the creepy lines I heard was a shooting across the street from my old hood.

Damn, when did our hometown become so .... crime centered for [lack of a better word]?

TOTALLY impressive. I am seriously digging the cricket-bat-Shaun. Perhaps I could borrow it for next year?

Wow, those are damn impressive!

What happens to them after Halloween's over and done with? Do they get thrown out in the garbage? What a damn shame...couldn't you bronze 'em and put them all on display on a cabinet or something?

I'm repeating what everyone else has said, but as I'm sure I'm not the only one never tires of hearing compliments... you are the undisputed King of Halloween Pumpkins.

We could start your own school - nay - university, dedicated solely to this fine art. Professor Rainy, teaching Basic Knife techniques (101) through to post-doctoral studies on The Metaphysical Symbiosis Of Post-Foucauldian Pumpkin Imagery.
