There once were three pumpkins
from that festive Thanksgiving Day
that dodged the carving knife so
for a while, they would stay
It was decided to display them
for an autumn decoration
Thus, in the yard they were placed
in a beautiful fall creation
Then one vanished from thin air
and couldn’t be found at all
The final deduction was Copper
ate the cantaloupe-sized ball
He showed no signs of distress
pumpkin is safe for canines
But there were no clues
no new bright-orange finds
What happened to that pumpkin
became a great pumpkin mystery
But with each day, time passed
along with our curiosity
Then, lo and behold,
time brought resolution
as an orange spot poked up
absolving all confusion
Yet, this finding was an anomaly
our lab’s never been a digger
Sure enough though, to our surprise
he chose to bury his treasure!!
My hubby saw a little orange spot, then brushed off
some of the dirt to confirm his assumption.
It looks like Copper had a little taste before burying
And introducing Mr. Innocent!

(and so the mystery is solved) 🙂 🎃😊
Last weekend, my husband and I went to a corn maze that our kids raved about. The maze is on four acres of land, and the design changes each year. It only took us 38 minutes to get through-record time, but we got lost in the beginning. A very strange and almost unsettling feeling, like being in the middle of a forest, trying to find your way out.
Needless to say, we found the exit, but the experience was so much fun. We ran into the same groups of people; everyone went in circles at some point. The middle two photos were taken from a platform overlooking the entire maze.
At the end, we walked around, enjoyed the country environment, but also felt a bit old, as little kids played in the corn box and on the hay stacks (weren’t our kids that young just yesterday?).
When we were ready to leave, we spotted the pumpkins, and since I love fall colors, I couldn’t leave without a photo of the vibrant gourdes. The other odd looking pumpkins are called “peanut pumpkins”-we’ve never seen these before; have you?
And yes, when we had a moment alone, in the midst of the maze, we stole a kiss. ♥
