Day 33

Where have all the pumpkins gone? Canned pumpkin is a great source of fiber, especially for dogs who have trouble expressing their anal glands. We're been adding pumpkin to our dogs meals for quite a while, but recently, I've started noticing that canned pumpkin is harder and harder to find. Albertson's has no pumpkin. Kroger or Tom Thumb don't have any either. Where have the pumpkins gone? I always thought that canned pumpkin was a staple ingredient in any kitchen. I mean everybody loves pumpkin pie, and pumpkin soup is fairly common too. You can still find parsnips, rutabaga and even stranger vegetables almost anywhere, but no pumpkin. I'm mystified.

I used to wonder about the meaning of life. In a pinch, I could quote Schopenhauer and Ludwig Wittgenstein from memory. Now, I wonder where all the pumpkins have gone. I wonder if anyone else finds Haley Bennett's voice irritating when she says "The Human Network" on those new Cisco commercials. I'm starting to wonder why the "live" Aflac duck has been replace by a cheesy looking cartoon duck.

Maybe my brain has already turned to mush. We'll see what else has turned to mush on Wednesday. That's when I'm scheduled to go to Medical City for the EGD test I had to postpone over the Christmas holidays because I couldn't find anyone to drive me to the hospital. They say a flexible endoscope is a remarkable piece of equipment, but I'm still not looking forward to swallowing a video camera.
