  10. Beautiful picture of you two, really - a fine picture.
    The pumpkin has just the right face, a fun face is better than a scary one, in my opinion.
    But the way you cut the back is brilliant. I always just cut a circle at the top and then you burn your hand trying to light the candle. But the way you've done it makes it easy to get you hand in there. Good Job!

  12. True elegance: Simple - the pumpkin. May its friendly smile not freeze. Stylish - you and the Prof.

    Happy Goose Pimples when the time comes,

  14. Very cute punk. Now you have to dress all the dogs up in their costumes and go trick or treating! Mo the Pug was Captain Jack Sparrow for our parade today.

  19. You're supposed to light it when it's dark and place it in the window looking out so that the spirits of your ancestors can find your house a welcoming place when they arrive in Trelawnyd at midnight on All Hallows' eve , but you knew all this already and that's why you gave him a smiley face . . .

  20. Happy pumpkin!

  21. Jack o' lanterns can have happy faces, too. I think it looks great. Do you get many trick or treaters? I was under the (perhaps incorrect) impression that Hallowe'en wasn't as big a deal in your neck of the woods, compared to North America. -Jenn

    2. Ahh, I stand corrected. Have fun handing out treats. Will Winnie enjoy the visitors?

  22. On the whole we don't "do" Halloween in Oz though it is beginning to develop and some parents escort their kids from house to house, poorly costumed asking for treats with no idea why but just looking for a bag full of lollies (sweets). Bah Humbug from me !!

  23. What sort of sweets are you handing out, John?

  24. I do like the classic friendly face you've carved on your pumpkin. Will you lighting it just a sunset tomorrow evening and leaving it in a window (facing outwards, of course) or be daring and put it outside your front door.

    I am amazed that many of the Halloween pumpkins left outdoors around here seem to survive the experience in a way that would not occur in less "urban" areas of this country.

    Happy Halloween to you and yours.

  25. I've stolen your happy pumpkin for my own devices. Though I preferred the one from last year that mouthed "fuck off". I also stole that one. So I owe you a couple of thank yous. Thank you, thank you John.
