Ever seen a pumpkin?

Well....I like pumpkin!

 

 

Really?  You mean I can keep mice away from under my car hood and rats out of my garden by sprinkling spices around?  LFG!

They hate the smell of cinnamon. I've used it and it works, it's better if you have cinnamon in oil form, but that can be expensive.

I've also been told that cayenne pepper draws them off.

You just named spices that mice and rats have an aversion to, so............

 

Mice and rats are also attracted to the smell of vanilla extract, so....

 

I don’t know where I was going with that one.

When my boys were little, I used to do the Pumpkin Masters thingy..usually something they were into at the time.  Godzilla, the Batman  signal, the Charging Buffalo, etc. BTW if you cut little bats in the back of the pumpkin and position it right, it will throw a nice light against the house.   

 

The best site for carving is..

Go through the contest winners for a few years..there are some really good ones.

 

I did do the Electrocution Guy one a while back with a road flare..it came out pretty good but not as good as the one in the pic..

Carving pumpkins next Saturday. Thinking I’m going to do 2:

 

The first? A traditional Jack-O-lantern.

 

Not sure about the second. But it may be election or bills related

So... I figured I'd get these few questions out of the way @EmotionallyUnstable, you ever seen a grown man naked? EmotionallyUnstable, do you ever hang around the gymnasium? EmotionallyUnstable, do you like movies about gladiators? EmotionallyUnstable, have you ever been, been in a Turkish prison?

 

😆 🤣 😂

Yes, no, yes and no. 

 

To be honest, I'm much more likely to be found in a Turkish prison before ever being within earshot of a gym.

Every year when I close up camp, I scatter a bunch of cinnamon sticks around the crawlspace to keep the bats out.

It does work.
