Wow - is it Friday already? Seems like some weeks just fly by! And now Thanksgiving is less the two weeks away - what?? We've had our first good frost. Where did fall go?
A few weeks ago I took Brutus for a little fall photoshoot at a pumpkin patch nearby while the fall colors were still vibrant. The farm is a picturesque place in the country not far from our home. They have all this stuff sitting out at the corner of two old state routes, with an "honor-system" payment box. You pick out what you want (mums, straw, corn, gourds, veggies) and stuff the money into a coffee can. There's even a note that you can make change for yourself if you need to. Isn't it Good to know that there are still some sleepy places where people are honest enough to do this!
Here's the produce stand. It's run by a little family farm.
In those big boxes were some beautiful gourds...
... in an endless variety of colors & shapes!
I couldn't resist posting Brutus amongst the goods!
Inquisitive as always!
Next we went next door to the pumpkin "patch" (they were actually already harvested, but it's the best we could do).
Can you even see Brutus? It's like "Where's Waldo"!!
There he is!! His orange collar makes him blend right in!
My little pumpkin!
Brutus had been so cooperative, and there was no one else around. I let him explore the place a little, so he can tell you about it from here:
Man, these things are everywhere....
Help - I'm surrounded!
Gotta be careful - a Frenchie could get squashed in here!!
(hehe - get it? Squashed?)
What's the deal with these things? Maybe they're tasty? Hmm.. which one looks good?
Hmpf. This one has no taste.
Nope, no flavor here either.
These humans are out of their gourds of they think these taste good!
I'm gourd silly, Mom...
Let's make like a tree & leave!!
I apologize for all those bad squash/gourd puns! Didn't know Brutus had it in him. Frenchies are known for being comedians, after all...
Before we sign off for the weekend, it's time to wish the Buckeyes luck for the game Saturday. If they can beat Iowa (who were undefeated until their loss to Northwestern last weekend), there is only our arch-rival Michigan to knock off in order to claim the Big 10 title!
Go BUCKEYES!!! Beat the Hawkeyes!!
