The Gutting and Carving of Mr. Jack-O-Lantern

We have some extremely talented Crew members.  Last Sunday afternoon we had a crew meeting to discuss plans for the winter.  It looks like we’ll be fairly busy on the service side and we’ll throw in some fun every once in a while.  The masterminds of Crew 91 have Christmas shopping on the docket and stuffing Christmas food baskets, skiing and winter cabin camping all in the works.  Who says the winter has to be boring and only full of cold?

A dozen or so pumpkins met their fate after our planning party.  Twelve little pumpkin stems were removed from their little pumpkin bodies and transformed into quite a fancy lot of Jack-O-Lanterns.

A little bit of everything was tried when it came to the creation of Mr. Pumpkin.  We had a couple video gaming pumpkins, some car memorabilia,  the St. Louis Cardinals made an appearance and the fancy trace and slice.  All in all a great Sunday meeting and a perfect way to spend a fall day!

Fall Has Arrived

Just two weeks ago we had weather in the 80’s!  Over the weekend a switch was flipped and today we face a high of only 45.  What has happened?

We’re not really complaining though.  This weather is perfect for roasting marshmallows, gazing into blazing hot fires and snuggling into a comfy hoodie.


A fall campout just might be in the works.  There really is no better time to camp.
