When we were kids, there were these blunt, saw-toothed pumpkin carvers. Remember these things? It was literally impossible to cut skin with them, but they'd saw through pumpkins with just a little extra effort.This is the first year I let Li'l Z help carve the pumpkins. He also got to pick the theme.

Although, to be honest, his job was mostly removing the pumpkin insides because I like his fingers attached to his hands. Maybe next year I'll let him use the pumpkin carver a little more.
We did use this tool, but he was having trouble with it, so I took over. I think next year he'll have more control with it. And I'll suggest a simplier design for him.When we were kids, there were these blunt, saw-toothed pumpkin carvers. Remember these things?

The wife and I were off doing that exact same thing last month
Dave said:OLD PICTURE THREAD!!
Got in touch with a buddy from Marine Corps boot camp. He gave me these pictures. Wow.
Dave said:Anyone guess which one is me?
blotsfan said:The one labeled "D.P. Nihsen."
Dave said:Dork. Try the other one.
Celt Z said:I don't know. I see 3 people in khaki and nothing else.
blotsfan said:That wasn't very nice.
Anywhom I'm guessing this fellow.
Dave said:Nope. That guy was a monster. That one guy that came into boot camp already in such good shape he didn't have to train hard at all. Nice guy, though.
blotsfan said:Learn to take a compliment.

Simfers said:Oh come on, if we put ourselves in the corner every time we think about a "Dave is old" joke, we'll never get out...
And then the forum would be empty... I imagine it would bring back fond memories for Dave of his chilhood in rural Pangea, but it'd get awful lonely, wouldn't it?
