Yup, I like it. My zucchini's are not coming in real well this year... zuke-a-lantern's might be a bust, especially if the deadline is firm. Maybe I'll try a digital version, but I know sasquatch already got me beat.

I don't think I have the skills to do a digital Lux O' Lantern, but I will carve a real one and submit a photo before the deadline.
