Looking for the Great Pumpkin


I snapped this shot at a local church that is referred to as the Pumpkin Church because of the fund raiser they do every year.

Unlike Linus I will not be waiting for the Great Pumpkin to arrive, I will however wear my Halloween t-shirt to work. How about you, will you be dressing up for Halloween? Also I am curious if you have a favorite scary movie that you like to watch. What ever you do I hope that you have a Happy Halloween.

Halloween has 'taken' here lately, I'd really like to carve my first pumpkin...

Kathy said...

The only Halloween activity that I really participate in is the candy ~ and it must be chocolate!

That sure is a lot of pumpkins Randy, bet they raise a lot of money for charity. No I'm not dressing up, but Aimee made up for it big time!! Happy Halloween!!

Thérèse said...

Just a "witchy" scarf for opening the door tonight and no scary movie! But a lot of fun.
Happy Halloween!

Wonderful Randy!

Looks like the grounds of one of our local churches. When we passed it Saturday night there are still loads of pumpkins to be sold. I wonder what they do with those that are left. l Pumpkins soup, perhaps?

When teaching I always wore Halloween clothes (not costumes, tho), and when my kids were small I used to dress up to greet the kiddies. Now I'm just a boring adult in a pumpkin shirt handing out goodies. Perhaps next year we'll go all out again.

It must be so fun for the kids!
Happy Halloween! ;-)

I am going to spend my Halloween at the gym! And I will probably hand out candy to the kiddies. I always loved that Charlie Brown special though. If it's on TV, maybe I'll watch that too! :)

Nice pumpkins here! Have a fun Halloween!

I am certainly glad that you found this place, 'cause for years I've wondered what church it is that the Great Pumpkin favors. And now I know!

I love the Peanuts special and like to watch it every year, but my favorite movie to watch on Halloween is "Arsenic and Old Lace". Such a classic.

oh, these are great questions. I won't be dressing up - it's been years since I've done that. it's become a tradition to, at the beginning of October, dust off and start watching my collection of scary movies - vintage Bela Lugosi: Dracula, Devil Bat, White Zombie, Human Monster, etc. I love Claude Rain's The Invisible Man, Boris Karloff in The Mummy and Frankenstein, Lon Chaney Jr. in The Wolf Man, and of course Creature from the Black Lagoon. guess that's a pretty long list there! it just can't be helped. you should take a photo of your Halloween t-shirt and post it! I hope you have a good one. happy day to you Randy. (and thank you very very much for your kind comments and encouragement. that means more to me than I have room here to write.)

Nothing like a sea of orange in the fall....did you find Charlie Brown?

Dawn said...

I tend to stay away from Halloween...I end up sleeping with my light on all night if I don't. I DO like that Pumpkin Patch though!
Nice capture. Love orange:)

Got Pumpkin?

Sandy said...

I'm still debating! Happy Halloween! =)

parker said...

Those are some really nice pumpkins. Just waiting their turns before some talented Santa Fe artist turns them into a work of art.

G-Kids are doing all the dressing up. Always a Treat seeing them in their costumes!

RedPat said...

I don't dress up - probably should though!

lifeisaroadtrip said...

I think about the scariest movie I can handle is Young Frankenstein. LOL. Happy Halloween, Randy!

Latha Vijayakumar said...

Marvelous pumpkins.

JM said...

Pumpkins make for such great photos!

cieldequimper said...

With 2 colleagues we had a bit of fun dressed up today at the office, but mostly there isn't much happening in France. But I do have my Jack o'lantern lit, probably the only one in the vicinity! And... and... and... made some pumpkin and ginger soup! :-)

Nat said...

Magnificent pumpkins! Nope, I'm not dressing up... I'm scary enough already :-)
Happy Halloween!

Olga said...

An incredible photo, with such an interesting perspective - pumpkins disappearing in the distance.

Regina K said...

I will be handing out candy tonight. Happy Halloween

Jarart said...

Pumpkins are such neat things!

yas said...

Exactly great pumpkins!
Have a happy November!

Rob said...

But where is Linus?!

becky said...

Hey Randy,
Hope you had a nice Halloween... I did not dress up... though I did wear Halloween socks to work AND baked a Halloween cake for my co-workers (though I ate about a third of it for breakfast when I got there!) No scary movies for me... they make for unpleasant dreams...
