Round here the deer would have done more Jason (of the Halloween movies) type carnage. I’ve gotten to where I keep the jack’o’lanterns inside at night until we’re through. Then we make a game out of smashing them so the deer can eat them. Great stress relief.

Even your squirrels are arteests! The way those candles are positioned inside the pumpkin, they look like eyeballs that got smashed in.

they destroyed 4 of our pumpkins!

Better than my first year in Florida: Bought the pumpkin 2 weeks in advance/carved it/ had it in the living room until Halloween/ it rotted and the lid made the most awful splooshing sound when it fell into the pumpkin. Now we know the weather here means no carving until a couple days before.

The damn squirrels around here eat all my figs and throw pinecones at my little five pound Duke. My husband says I’m imagining that; but, it’s true!

Fl Liz is so correct. And this also means the pumpkins do not last long enough for the squirrels to eat. The pumpkins go in the trash the day after Halloween, unless you’re into moldy messes staining your front porch.

It looks like it has a flesh eatting disease.

I like this pumpkin. Scariest Halloween thing I’ve seen this year. (of course, I avoid scary H things…)

Same thing happened to mine. Probably the same squirrels.

I think our squirrels were too busy with the tomatoes in the backyard to come around to the front. Interesting look on yours. My daughter is convinced that our (small colony) feral cats have made treaties with the squirrels. Rats with fluffy tails. Ugh. p.j.

I can’t put out bird food because the damn squirrels attack the birds.

What a drag it is getting old.
