Today Mrs Inor took our grandson over to our local pumpkin patch to get pumpkins to carve for Halloween. They came back with several really nice pumpkins which Mrs Inor, our daughter and grandson (mostly Mrs Inor) carved into really neat jack-o-lanterns. (I was busy doing work stuff as I have to fly out early tomorrow.)

Anyway, she also bought an extra pumpkin. It is one of the special "pink" pumpkins where all of the proceeds go to the breast cancer folks. She also made sure to give them a few extra bucks as a cash donation as well.

So, my question is...

Well it seems Mrs Inor, not unlike Mr Obama, has gone against the overwhelming will of the American people and carved a stupid jack-o-lantern face into the pink pumpkin. :-( Just sayin'

Oh well, I guess I will still vote for her again...

I voted for NOT carving pumpkins! Growing up it was OK to carve pumpkins but when you realize that when as a culture carving pumpkins used to be that you just carved the "left over" pumpkins that you can't process from your garden. Now days people living in the suburbs and cities go out and buy perfectly good pumpkins or go to pumpkin patches and fields and pick perfectly good pumpkins only for the purpose of cuting them up sticking candles in them until they rot!!! :roll:

Like most traditions in America we sure screw it up into being wasteful! Sure I may seem over the top but like you all know I work in retail and seeing the volume of pumpkins fly out the doors at the ONE store is pretty shocking once you multiply that for each similar retail store. Again sure you can argue that I am just complaining and to let everyone have some fun but.. As a society we are in debt up to our ears! Credit cards, car loans, mortgages, and other ways too and were buying "food" to let it rot outside on our door stoop next to our perfectly manicured lawns we spend money treating and watering and get very little usage out of.

Am I crazy or does the American lifestyle just seem so unsustainable and wasting of funds and resources!?!
