Jack O' Lanterns- Before & After The Fall


Although this is the other half of the commemorative (actually intended for Monochrome W.) only I decided not to tie this in.

My Polaroid camera..taken of me on the right back in February or March of 1979 (Magic Sands Beach, Kona, Hawaii) Before this fall-


My two boys with their carved out Jack O' Lanterns -1989


This fall- 2009.. happy to oblige- (they were trying to conjure up the same expressions) ha-

Wonderful memories for you! And great photos of you and your sons. What fun it is to carve pumpkins! An answer to your question on my blog, yes there were pine needles mixed in with the red maples..

Am I late? Dropped by to appreciate your posts, and lo, these are great. With your sons all grown up and still listens to Moms words. Very nice. Have wonderful days the rest of the week.
