In search of the great pumpkin

A visit to the pumpkin patch always makes me think of the classic show “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”  You know, where Linus convinces Sally that if they spend the entire night in the pumpkin patch, they will get to see the Great Pumpkin rise from the patch and bring presents to all of the good little boys and girls.

Sally’s rant at the end is my favorite.  “I was robbed!  I spent the whole night waiting for the Great Pumpkin, when I could have been out for tricks or treats.  Halloween is over, and I missed it!  You blockhead.  You kept me up all night waiting for the Great Pumpkin, and all that came was a beagle.  I didn’t get a chance to go out for tricks or treats.  And it was all your fault.  I’ll sue!  YOU OWE ME RESTITUTION!”

I love Sally.  :)   And I love the pumpkin patch.
