    Pumpkin update

    Well it happened today. we all met down at our local dive store with pumpkins in hand and doned our dive gear and out we went into the great green sea. 10 ft under to carve pumpkins. As promised the pumpkin that arrived here ( thanks Cynthia) had a winning roll in this years contest and gave me first place. I won a new set of fins and two ball caps. It raised money for our local kids hospital so it was a great cause and it was lots of fun.

    It is being eaten by the bigger pumpkin. That is what happens in the underwater pumpkin patch.

    Made the local news tonight and had our pumpkins on the news and a quick line from me. " I went in with one and came out with two, strange things happen in the ocean"

    You did that underwater? Heck, I don't think I could do one that good up top with a lot of time on my hands!

    Nice job!
