Alphabe Thursday 24 October 2013 Why, Where and Wallowing

Warning- this is a silly W post!

Greetings to the bewitching hour of.....

No. Strike that.

I bet you thought being so close to October 31st that I might post something, Halloween like, right?

Be honest.

Not me.  For Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday on her "Off on my tangent" blog we're studying the letter W.

So feasibly we might chat about, wands, warlocks, webs, wild-hairy-werewolf, wicked, wig, witch, witchcraft, wizard, or wraith.  No not wraith, too scary!


Let's discuss

WHY, WHERE and Wallowing

Where have all the good people gone this time of year?  Why pumpkin hunting of course.

pumpkin hunting
can you think of something better?
WONDROUS, and most delicious PUMPKINS GONE?
In Minnesota this year we even grew PINK

They really grew this lovely shade of pink.
Yes! As a matter of fact I'm standing on a mother-load of a pumpkin stash!  Woof! Woof!

With all seriousness aside

for me right now
That's not what I expected to be doing.

Truth be told, I've truly enjoyed a laughing-learning experience
with my own pumpkin growing this year.

Until, last night's frost.  I'm still nervous about going to my pumpkin patch.

Of course some big-time pumpkin growers really know how to put their pumpkins, and other goodies to bed at night
guarding ever so carefully against our brutal frosts.

Nice right?

So, while I'm picking up all the pieces to this willy-nilly pumpkin tale
I put on my happy pumpkin face

and begin here.

Weatherly able, and if you care to join me too,
 we can begin our search for the perfect pumpkin.
Way-wiser were we to discover this farmer's pumpkin paradise.

If only my patch was like his out back!
Well, we wouldn't want to be way-gone or way-over-board
in our search
would we?

Easy peasy pumpkin squeezy.
What do you think about this wobbly couple?

Why not pick one of these?
Well for starters
We'd also have to wander-a-way over to their cousin's
pumpkin collection,
and buy some of their pumpkins too!

 Can't break up a good family you know.

All that really matters
is that you bring home something
scoop it out for soup and such
and carve it real pretty
and light them every night
for as long as you can.

In the end
they all just burned their lives away for the good of mankind.

Your pumpkin search somehow reminded me of Cinderella... Some of those pumpkins looked like they could make a great coach!

I'm back from my blog hiatus and am making my way around blogosphere to visit all of my lovelies who came by while I was gone. Pumpkin hunting is indeed a good thing to be doing for the end of October. I can't believe a new month is lurking just around the corner! Eeeck, the holidays are drawing nye, too!
