Hey All….I goofed…the video did not take in this blog and didn’t know how to incorporate it here, so went ahead and did a separate bog titled Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party – Part 2 (The Video)…go check it out !
Had a great opportunity to attend a really nice Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party on Saturday evening. I was invited to this event by 2 girls that I met at the Pride Parade in Orlando a couple of weeks ago. The home is owned by 2 really nice guys name Derek and Ken. They have a really beautiful house and they went all out with Halloween decor’. Actually it reminded me of what Terry and I used to do in our former home in Dallas, TX when it came to all the Holidays. Naturally, when we down-sized all the holiday decor’ was either sold in our garage sales at pennies on a dollar or just donated to others who could not normally afford such things for their enjoyment. We realized that there just would not be enough room to store all non-essential things in our RV.
So when I entered my new friend’s home, I really could appreciate all the time-consuming work that they did to decorate. The party was really nice and it also reminded me of the many times that Terry and I would attend these couples group parties and pot lucks at homes of our friends in the Dallas area. It brought me a bit of comfort to be able to participate once again in a gathering of this kind although now having to do this alone.
I hope you enjoy the video and the other photos of me just being a bit silly posing with all my scary friends.
You will note the photo of the lite jack-o-laterns proudly displayed by the pool in one of the photos. That was the fruits of our labor! You will also see in one of the photos the pumpkin that I brought home with me and put on my outdoor table. I will admit that I actually didn’t do the carving on my pumpkin. I let a couple of my new friends Dave and David do the actual work on it for me as they never did pumpkin carving before and I wanted to give them the opportunity to excel. You will see them diligently working on my pumpkin in the earlier part of the video.
Have a wonderful day ! Luv Gary
