Saturday Centus - Five Little Pumpkins

Welcome

to a bewitching tale about.....
 
Pumpkins! 


Yes, Jenny from "Off on my tangent" blog, has delighted our screens with five adorable little pumpkins! We must respond with : Any style writing- exactly 100 words and - any other photos!



Cranky Frankie Strudel

 
 
On a frigid night
where folks were counting seeds in pumpkins;
but, no one could count the pumpkins in a seed-
of course either process took all night
a group of three Trick or Treaters-
 
 
set out for the perfect pumpkin!
 
 
 
 
 
 
But that's not my story.
My story
is about Cranky Frankie Strudel
a pumpkin whose mother
 thought he was an apple.
 
An apple?
So while hanging from his vine
someone cut him free
 declaring him a pumpkin!
So
Cranky Frankie Strudel went to town
A-riding on a wagon
and farmer Lee
carved out eyes, a nose and mouth
and called him
 
Jack-o-Lantern
 
 
Trust me- (Ha! Ha!) this is a true story!

Karen your grandchildren are adorable! Sooo cute and precious!

I see that we have the same bench, mind you I think you mentioned this to me when I posted mine while I was redoing it. My son gave it to me, when he seen it all fixed up he said jokingly he wanted it back! No way, I did the work! lol

Have a Happy Halloween! Cheers.
