Extra photos for bloggers: 123

We’ve all been there.

You’ve braved the pumpkin’s innards and spent hours etching its Titian-hued flesh.

Then, the neighbor’s cat dashes by the window (or was that a ghost?) and suddenly you’ve lopped the smirk right off of Jack O. Lantern’s face.

It’s a gourd revolution!
