The perfect jack-o-lantern starts with the picking of the perfect pumpkin.
Next, you get a dog to guard that perfect pumpkin until ready to carve.
The next step is to carefully plan the design before picking up the carving tool.
And to have your assistant check out the details.
And when she is unsure, you keep at it.
Even if the assistant seems to be laughing at your progress.
And still very uncertain if this is going to turn out.
all of the work
will pay off.
