Daughter-in-Love grows the pumpkins. This year they didn't ripen orange so I splashed a coat of white paint on mine and lettered them instead of carving. I'm happy because they'll carry my decorating into Thanksgiving. The kids and I made the jar-o-lanterns many years ago and they make me smile and "remember when" as I haul them out for Halloween.
I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion.
~Henry D. Thoreau
