Today We Are in Pumpkinland

We're taking a short visit away from Buttercupland to an equally friendly place, Pumpkinland. Had a wonderful weekend visiting with friends on the north shore of Long Island, about two hours out of New York City. It's not the fancy resort part of Long Island -- that's the south shore. Here it is quieter and there are still farms, lots of them, and it seems they are all growing pumpkins. I saw literally thousands of pumpkins. I chose one, which will make a blog appearance shortly, but I happily could have taken them all back with me. One of the offers was a wheelbarrow of pumpkins for $55.00, and there were a number of people wheeling dozens of pumpkins out of the fields. I also made my first visit to a corn maze and had a lot of fun. Our leader out of the maze was my friends' ten year old, who was a great guide.
Thanks all for your advice about my costume for "Let's Make a Deal." Still debating whether to pursue this, but appreciate all the good advice.
Tomorrow night is the Tim McGraw webcast. Live on your computers at 8:00 P.M. ET. Don't know about photos, but will try and post about the evening tomorrow night.
Sweet dreams and wishes for a great week!

HI Buttercup!!!!
That pumpkin patch was the best one I have seen in a long time!!!We will be going next week. I love corn mazes, but I'm always afraid I will get lost!!!! WOW, a barrel of pumpkins for 55.00, good deal!!! Cause sometimes a big one cost 10.00!!! I want a medium size one!!!!
Going to turn it into a Pirate, I bought a kit!!!!
Have a fun week, my neighbor's best friend is here visiting, she is from Yonkers!!!! She wants to move here!!! Her daughter has been swimming all week!!! In the 90's this week!!!!

That pumpkin patch was awesome. I love this time of year - everyone is happy - the weather is cooler and more refreshing.

Have fun with TIm.
