Linus: He'll come here because I have the most sincere pumpkin patch and he respects sincerity.
Sally Brown: Do you really think he will come?
Linus: Tonight the Great Pumpkin will rise out of the pumpkin patch. He flies through the air and brings toys to all the children of the world.
Sally Brown: That's a good story.
Linus: You don't believe the story of the Great Pumpkin? I thought little girls always believed everything that was told to them. I thought little girls were innocent and trusting.
Sally Brown: Welcome to the 20th century!

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,
(Christopher Shea-actor, Sally Dryer-actress,
Charles M. Schulz-writer, Bill Melendez-director, 1966)

TIME:  9:17 AM
PLACE:  Fairgrounds-Flea Market
SUBJECT:  Baby Pumpkins

After dropping off the kiddos at Sunday School this morning, I played hooky and headed to the flea market for a quick perusal of the goods.   One vendor was selling pumpkins and the morning light was casting interesting shadows on the pile.  Gathering up my courage, I asked if he would mind if I took a few photos.  No, he didn’t mind at all.

MonkeyBoy had a football game at 2pm.  They lost 34-20.  But, I must say that MB played a heck of a game and I’m not just saying that because I’m his mother.  He made some key tackles and did very well offensively as well.  Looking back to they way he played last year (his 1st year of playing football) compared to this year, I can see that he has definitely improved his game.  Way to go son,  I am very proud of how hard you have worked so far this season and of the effort that you are putting forth during the games.  You are doing great!

Pumpkins are the best fall color! And the fabulous pumpkin desserts with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves smell so wonderful baking in the oven. :)
