The Great Pumpkin Hunt!





  I have seen the fields and yards full of pumpkins,
    not to long ago.
Little kids and adults alike scurrying to and fro searching for the special gourd. A few brave Jack-O-Lanterns are still in view. Some just laying around sunning themselves in the sparse autumn sunshine, others trying hard to cling to the vine or hide behind dried crumpled foliage. The great pumpkin hunt has been going on for weeks and is slowing down as Halloween approaches.

Listen .. (okay, view really, LOL)
    to this frightening pumpkin tale below ...

hunted down in their prime and loaded onto carts


some divided from their pack and caged 
like the wild beasts they really are!


one quick thinker helps his friends...

Is it too late for you?


Well there is always next year ...





 Until next time ...

  2. I won't let anyone lock you up Faythe. Some pumpkins found new homes and some are still in the field. And some are in the stores and well, you know.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  5. Being in a cage might be a good thing. My daughters pumpkin got chewed by her big dog.

    1. Joyce, the squirrels chew up my son's every year before he can carve them for his boys . I suggested he put out some corn or nuts somewhere else in his yard, but he doesn't want to encourage them 🎃

  7. Most poor pumpkins will suffer a most horrendous fate this time of year. If they survive Halloween, Thanksgiving will surely do them in.
