The Pumpkin That Didn't Want To Be Carved

Spark had a two pumpkins he wanted to put together for the 4-H pumpkin carving contest.  The first one, no problem.  The second one, who was quite small, had such a hard rind that he couldn't even get the knife to stab into it.  That is where Ryobi came to the rescue.  Dad got out a saw and got the top off that pumpkin in short order. 
To carve the eye - used a door knob cutter.  The pumpkin is looking like he is having second thoughts about being so hard to carve.  For the mouth they used a regular drill bit.
Their diligence paid off, Spark won first place in the carving contest.
