LAST UPDATED 11/14/2001
2001 was a banner pumpkin year. I am going to be actively updating this page. For now, all I wanted to do was to throw these pumpkins up on my site as so many people are looking to see them.
This year, I was approached by good friend Bob L'Heureux (founder of our cardboard boat race, here in Merrimack, and host of "Out Doors with Bob", on our local cable TV channel 22). I had suggested to Bob that pumpkin carving would make a good topic for an October show. Well, to make a long story short, this snowballed into a 90 minute special on my pumpkin carving that is being shown 3 times a day for the week before halloween!
Shortly after filming that and seeing its first airing, I received a phone call from our local channel 9 news (WMUR). They had seen my pumpkins at the 2001 Milford Pumpkin Festival and wanted to feature me on their news program. I didn't have any pumpkins, but assured them that I would have some by Sunday, for them to film. From Friday night till Sunday morning I was carving (as was Jennifer) and we produced 4 pumpkins. The 3 that I did served as gifts for close friends of mine.
Well, I no sooner get that all set up, carve my last pumpkin (and comment to my wife (Kathy) that I'm kinda glad that pumpkin season is over), that I receive a call from Nashua channel 13. They heard about my carvings and want me to do a 30 minute LIVE broadcast on halloween night. After more than a decade, it seems everyone has heard of me! *S* needless to say, I'm thrilled *S*
As a result of all this exposure, I've been receiving mail about my 2001 pumpkin pictures on this website. I haven't had time to put together a real pretty page, but figured it was more important to get these images up for viewing.
So, here they are *S* I've broken these photo albums into 3 parts and have included thumbnails and descriptions of them. Enjoy! and keep watch through the rest of this season as I add pumpkins to this photo album.
