Gnawed-on Jack O' Lantern

W and I bought a nice, big pumpkin last Friday so we could be properly prepared for Halloween. I hadn't carved a pumpkin since nursery school, but it was great fun! I saved the seeds, mixed them with some oil and spices, and toasted them in the oven.

This is our friendly-looking Jack o' Lantern. He probably won't look quite as perky by Halloween, though. The squirrels have been attacking him, and already his hat (the lid) doesn't fit anymore. Poor Jack! And darn those squirrels! Is nothing safe from them?

Try rubbing some Pak Fa Yeow on Jack. The squirrels will probably not like the smell very much and stay away.
