A Halloween treat …

First of all let me apologize for not leaving any blogger comments for the last 2 weeks. I have been up in NY state visiting my daughter Jody and her husband Brian. A fun time was had by all and this was one of the highlights:

Here we see Jody in the kitchen preparing her pumpkin for the cutting process:

Then Jody and Brian in front of the lovely stone wall of the bridge at Patchin Mills, Pine Plains, NY.

For many years it has been the tradition to line up the pumpkins there and set them aglow with candles inside. John Bradley (a Patchin descendant) and Jody & Brian's friend, has continued the tradition ever since his mom died 8 years ago. He actually buys the pumpkins and scoops out the insides so they are ready for decorating. This year he provided close to 100 “ready to go” pumpkins ! 

Here we have the final display … lovingly carved by the locals !
