I understand the itch to carve, for sure. And Chaplin is a good choice. Quite a talented guy! Your carving looks like a photo and does him justice.

Stoney, I'm curious... if you were to do the math for all the pumpkins you carve in a year, what percentage would you say are artificial pumpkins, and what percentage are real pumpkins?

Thanks Ryan !
This is one of my favorite scenes from a chaplin film. 2nd Fav is the ending of city lights.

The Kid was Played by Jackie Coogan Who grew up to be Uncle Fester
He was also married to Betty Grable - a 2 year Hollywood Marriage) .


These Days, I carve Almost "ALL" Foam pumpkins. Last year I think I only carved one Real.

(Sorry for the Late reply,)
I spent the past week, working on House Stuff and was not online.
Replaced a 100' Split Rail Fence, Power washed My House's vinyl siding and PVC Yard fences etc.....

The older I get the tougher this stuff gets.. :oops:

Sounds like you know your trivia about classic Hollywood. As soon as you mentioned the name Jackie Coogan, I recognized the name as the Uncle Fester actor. I do know a bit about The Addams Family and The Munsters. I feel a connection to them... they're just like my real family (but a bit more normal).

And I know what you mean about the home maintenance getting tougher as the years go on. I just spent a few days scrubbing and staining a deck... then needed the whole weekend to recover.

That's a fantastic carve!

And I completely agree about the outdoor maintenance as well. The older I get the harder it is to get done.
