My team got lost on the way back, so it took us twice as long as it did to get up there. We passed stores selling elk jerky, and I wanted to get some for James, but they wouldn't stop.
There was a pumpkin-carving contest held at 7pm. I came in second place with a creepy smile, although according to the people standing near me, I came in first by popular vote. Lots of people took pictures, and one guy set it as his cell phone wallpaper. The winner was a wolf.
I had to stick one of the teeth back on with a needle,
& I should have spent more time on the eyes.
They're going to roast all the pumpkin seeds from about a dozen or so pumpkins, so I will get to have some this year after all. I was really disappointed before when I thought I wouldn't be able to do much for Halloween here, but with this, helping the local Boys & Girls Club, and the party next Friday, it's shaping up pretty well.
I have a post of the last couple of days halfway done, so I'll work on that tomorrow.
