November 19, 2020

Our Melfort friend Al Jardine had a break from being attacked by Snerks. This gave him time to respond to Halloween as only Al could do. Here is his story.


This year I was given two extra large pumpkins to carve. One was a 109 lbs and the runner up was 98lbs. They were the 2020 Kinistino Sk. Communities in bloom, pumpkin growing competition winners. They were grown by the Mark Poty family of Kinistino.


I gave one to Doris Sheldon, a fellow carver from Melfort, to carve.
As carved pumpkins don’t survive long I waited until Halloween eve to start my masterpiece. I named him Covid Oscar as this being the year 2020 and he does look a bit grouchy it seemed appropriate.

I hope he makes your day, enjoy and stay healthy.
Al Jardine

Covid Oscar.
