Conspicuous Absence

Today is October 11. That means there are exactly 20 days until Halloween. I can't help but notice there are no pumpkins on this island. There are, however, pumpkin carving kits at the commissary. Very helpful.

So, to those of you who will be trekking to a local pumpkin patch in the coming days - and to those of you who won't even though you could - please take an extra moment to be thankful for your pumpkin-laden fall and remember those of us who would settle for a giant cardboard box of moldy orange melons right about now.

I'll be going next week as part of the Preschool 2 field trip - 15 parents and 17 kids is about the most fun you can have at a pumpkin patch - and probably one other time. We'll buy one for you!

There in there in!! A tad moldy as expected, but here none-the-less.

So next year I'll have some very sarcastic comment for your pumpkin patch pictures because I will still be on this island with moldy pumpkins.
