Not much to carving a pumpkin. Right? The hard work is getting all the seeds and other junk out. Then, poke a couple of eye holes and snaggly teeth, rig a light inside, and wait until dark.
Not in Kansas.
Part of my tour of nighttime Leavenworth took me by the tableau featured below.

The preview of the pumpkin carvings was noticed by Wally, my bridge partner of days gone by. He let me know of Ed Moody, of Frankfort, MI., carver of extraordinary pumpkins. Pumpkin Ed does fifteen 1000-pounders every year.
His website, http://pumpkined.com/ , contains dozens of pix of his orange giants.
I am officially adding Ed’s house at 722 Leelanau Ave., Frankfort, Mich., to my bucket list for any October.
