Some pumpkins look so much cooler when their faces start to cave in a little. The Siamese twins pumpkin (conjoined twins) pumpkin from the book came out that way. After it sat on my porch for a few days I ended up taking its picture again. I really like the crustier version shown here and that is what made it into the book.
When I am not carving pumpkins, I run a bulletproof vest company. BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests are the value leader in body armor. We are very popular with people like armored car operators and ATM repairmen.
