After walking the rescue dogs, we went out and bought a bunch of pumpkins to use as props when we do the Halloween photo shoot next Saturday. Ann said she'd bring a bale of hay. That ought to be plenty to create a simple Fall harvest theme. I thought it would be a good idea to keep the pumpkins inside so they'd stay nice looking when we got home. I didn't realize that Dash would think of them as brightly colored balls to play with. Just as soon as we got them all inside, he began slapping the little pumpkins all over the living room floor like tennis balls. Now, we've got pumpkins on every available shelf to keep them out of his reach.
One thing is certain. Last year's pumpkin shortage is over. There are plenty of fresh pumpkins, as well as the canned variety everywhere. Prices are pretty reasonable too. Since pumpkin is a great source of fiber, we like to put a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin on top of the dog's food at dinner time. It was just about impossible to find the stuff last year. Often we had to resort to buying expensive canned organic pumpkin off the Internet.
I've been reading some articles about SEO this week. While I'm not a huge fan of search engine optimization, I'll have to admit that I am a bit curious to see whether mentioning the word pumpkin nine times will bring me any new readers.
