Pumpkin Pics - Fail

Due to circumstances beyond my control (family emergency, family trouble, weather, etc), I don't think there will be any new pumpkin pics this year. I wasn't able to get into town on Sunday (my one day off) and I have doubts about this Sunday not to mention that the pumpkins are starting to...well, rot. Cuz that's what happens. I imagine they'll come to cart them away soon. Anyway, as consolation I'm posting a few of my favorites from years past...











In other news I am still making (slow) progress on FAIRY TAIL thanks to my Monday night practice, and I will also have a First Impression for you all the first week of November. And in case you forgot, First Impressions is a triple critique of someone's first page by authors Dianne Salerni (The Eighth Day), Krystalyn Drown (Legasea), and yours truly. If you're interested check out the FAQ on my sidebar.

Have a wicked awesome weekend :)

  13. I'm sorry you weren't able to go see the pumpkins this year, but thanks for sharing last year's pics. It boggles the mind what some people can create with a pumpkin. (I'm happy if I can cut a basic face in it without cutting my finger off!)

    Have a super weekend.

  15. Sorry you won't get to see the pumpkins, although I'd think that as long as they aren't cut, they should last a while. I hope your problems all go away and you have a good weekend! (Love the header pic! You always have awesome ones.)
