It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Great picture!

Ok; so how far did he end up chucking it? ;-)

The small human seems to have graph paper shorts. Good training for plotting his optimal throw trajectory etc. Though it looks like he may be working in base 9 or 7. Perhaps it’s cthulhoid maths/science or something.

Great picture!

Thanks! My grandson, in case you could not guess. His comment when he saw the picture on the Web was, “Oh, God, that’s me!” Graph-paper shorts or no, I don’t think he threw the pumpkin very far.

How old is the little guy?

This seems like a good place to post the world records in ‘punkin chunkin.’ The air cannons can shoot one almost a mile, but I prefer the trebuchets for amusement value. :)

The pumpkin, I suspect, is no more than 6 months old. Noah is 10-point-something now, so he must have been 4-point-something then. Time, if not pumpkins, flies.

Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
