Thankgiving carvers?
« on: November 02, 2008, 08:48:56 AM »
Now that Halloween is past,  do we have any Thanksgiving pumpkin carvers?   

Here is one I did a while back for a Thanksgiving Dinner center piece....

Robo (Nice picture and carving)...you are the BEST!  I'm telling my wife that there is now a Thanksgiving contest and the pumpkin on the kitchen counter MUST stay! Never even thought about justifying Thanksgiving as a reason NOT to clean the kitchen counter. She has made a couple comments about "me" cleaning up the dried pulp and seeds that are now stuck in place. If someone can suggest a Christmas pumpkin picture contest, this baby may stay in place till next year!

Pictures are pre-Halloween and post Halloween.

Well,  if you let him hang around for Thanksgiving,  he may look like a lot of folks feel after eating that big dinner :-P  Don't know if I can help for Christmas,  but if you can hold out until New Years,  I guarantee he will represent how a lot of folks feel with the New Years eve hang over....

I'm sure the folks that sell the pumpkin carving kits would be more than willing to come up with a set of Christmas drawings to sell.....

i am not that talented :-(.  i am now counting the pumpkins that are still in the garden to see how many loaves of pumpkin bread i'll be making and freezing.  cutting them up to cook is all the carving i'll be doing!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

The only Thanksgiving Carver I'm interested in is the huge home grown roasted bird on the platter in the center of the table.  That's what I call a center piece, like in I'll have 2 slices of that turkey.
