Saturday, October 31, 2020:  Paula was busy getting a pumpkin ready for carving. 
She picked up this conjoined pumpkin (two pumpkins that grew together) from Mike Koering at his
pumpkin stand near the civic center in Brainerd.

Then it was time to take the insides out.  Mark was surprised she was smiling. 

Deep Diver Paula joined her SCUBA diving friends at a mine pit lake near Crosby, MN.

The dive crew showed off their works of art.  This is an annual event run by the Minnesota School of Diving

This is what she came up with after carving her unique pumpkin underwater.
Note she has a red face mask with stripe, the universal dive flag logo. 
The pumpkin creature has wings and antennas. 

There was much fun that day in spite of the 40 degree temperature. 

Quote of the day:    Paula is always doing something interesting.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
