Autumn has well and truly arrived in all its orange glory – the days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder and Halloween is just around the corner. Am not a huge fan of Halloween but one thing I do love is pumpkins, don’t they look so friendly. Guess they are more an American thing with their pumpkin pies, we just basically buy them to butcher them and leave on our doorsteps with a candle to make them glow. Wishing you all a weekend as happy as a pumpkin [the non-butchered variety of course].

Happy Flyday!

“We fancy men are individuals; so are pumpkins; but every pumpkin in the field goes through every point of pumpkin history” [Ralph Waldo Emerson]

“Men are like pumpkins. It seems like all the good ones are either taken or they’ve had everything scraped out of their heads with a spoon.” [Anon]

“I will keep moving forward, forever forward, towards and endless dream, and a thousand pumpkin lights.” [President George Bush]

“I was something that lay under the sun and felt it, like the pumpkins, and I did not want to be anything more. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge.” [Willa Sibert Cather]
