The Pumpkin Patch
I am a little girl looking for a Pumpkin for Halloween.
From Farmer Benny’s Stand
He said it was the grandest
That ever grew on his land.
It was fourteen inches wide
And weighed thirty-two pounds.
And, it had a stem that twisted
All the way around.
I took it home and stared at it
To decide what I should do.
Should I carve a scary face;
Or, should I just carve “Boo!?”
Well, I took a knife and cut away
But it was not easy.
My scary mouth was upside down
And became a grin so cheesy.
My pumpkin is not scary
As I wanted it to be.
But, it’s still the grandest pumpkin
In all the world to me!

On Veterans Day we honor all,
Who answered to a service call.
Soldiers young, and soldiers old,
Fought for freedom, brave and bold.
Some have lived, while others died,
And all of them deserve our pride.
We’re proud of all the soldiers who,
Kept thinking of red, white and blue.
They fought for us and all our rights,
They fought through many days and nights.
And though we may not know each name,
We thank ALL veterans just the same.

A TEENAGER DID THIS!!!
There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy.25 in rural Iowa.
For generations, kids have painted slogans, names and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times.
A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job and since then it has
been left completely undisturbed.
It’s quite an impressive sight. Be sure to scroll down and check out the
multiple photos. All angles of the rock.
I thought the flag was draped over the rockbut
it’s not. It’s actually painted on the rock too.
Museum currently occupies the Elephant Hotel.
