Don’t Count Yer Pumpkins…

Ooh! I want THAT one!

You may not know it to look at me, but I am not always quick on the uptake! Or, DETAILS.

Yesterday, at my behest, I and my area family members planned our Sunday around attending Spencer’s Grand “Pumpkin Palooza” at 3 o’clock at the nearby Trenary farm. My own dear friend Jennifer Trenary’s grown-like-a-weed enterprising son’s enterprise!

Chores and errands in the morning, a little dusting, a little nap taking, and behold! We were READY.

My sister Julie and Scott and Scott’s daughter and her husband, along with their VERY excited six-year-old piled into a car to meet me there (I was going on foot).

What fun we were going to have! What memories were Rolfe’s newest inhabitants going to create at their very first fall event since moving here to Rolfe. Rolfe Rodeo was going to be serving hot soup and there was going to be crafts and other goodies. And, of course…PUMPKINS! Ooh, hope they could find a parking space. At least THAT wasn’t something I’d have to worry about!

Julie and her gang got there first, and…


Ignore the two people in the background. There was NOBODY.


Now, see? THIS is why I should never be in charge. The glorious and much-anticipated “Pumpkin Palooza” is actually on October 13th! And it’s not even at 3:00, it’s from 11:00 to 3:00. Somehow I got my vines crossed…

A good laugh was had by most*. And we created a Pumpkin Memory. THAT is the important thing. Two weeks to go…

*Julie would like for me to point out that SHE was NOT the grumpy one.
