Ten years ago this past weekend I was at the Lodge for a couple of nights and really enjoyed seeing the "Jack O Lantern" competition that the crew displayed. I hope those pumpkins were transported up by the llamas ! Give me some candy corn for Halloween and that's all I need for the holiday; I have no talent for carving a pumpkin except to cut off its top and extract the insides for pie ! Again, last week I acquired an even deeper appreciation for what all the crew does in their daily performance of their duties. They really do a great job. And I did so love being fogged in all day Thursday.
"plenty of costumes, peanut butter desserts, body parts, skeletons"... aren't those elements part of EVERY day at the Lodge :-)
Good artwork on the pumpkins.
Our son isn't old enough yet for a carved pumpkin, and when he is old enough we'll have to explain that if we leave a pumpkin out for even one night on a porch, it will be eaten by deer/raccoons/armadillos/whatever else will be wandering through our yard that night! As such, I will enjoy the work of others on the annual carving of the orange gourds.
That reminds me Elktonbrant, you not putting a carved pumpkin outside for fear it will be eaten by all the creatures roaming your neighborhood. Since we were in the area the week prior to Halloween, I wanted to give our cabin a festive vibe, so I bought some pumpkins. But, I decided maybe it wasn't a good idea to put them on the porch. Good thing, because on Wednesday, when we were unpacking the car from our hike up LeConte, a bear came down out of the woods right between the cabin and car. I was in the cabin and didn't get to see it, but Kent and Tommy told me that I had left the door open on Kent's car, and them and a neighbor across the street were trying to shoo it away! That would have been interesting! I later found out they were teasing me. About the open car door that is, not the bear.
Do you still have the 2016!tnshirtsnfeaturing the bear? Lots of colors and sizes?
