Pumpkinin' it Forward?

Posted on Thu, Oct 10, 2013 at 11:17 AM

It seems every year someone snags our pumpkin off the steps in front of our door on Falkland. This year it was, if I do say so myself, a beauty. That $5 investment off the side of a road in The Valley got the yank and I suppose if we're dumb enough to keep putting one there without chaining it down... (?) The frustration though is; it was only there for three nights fer crissakes! and it's only October 9th! Can we at least get to the teens of the month intact? This is a "Love" though and not a "Bitch" because before we knew it not one, but two, of the uber-generous in the neighborhood saw our hand-written plea to the perps and both anonymously deposited fresh, new, and gorgeous pumpkins on the step. Amazing! It almost doesn't matter if someone walks away with those tomorrow, the fall already has a highlight. Thanks for your kindness Pumpkin Fairy and Pepper the Schnoodle! Much appreciated by the kids of the house, and the parents... —Undone Glum
