Arise, Pumpkins, Arise!: Rise of the Jack-o-Lanterns 2014

For the third year in a row, I went to the dark and spooky Old Westbury Gardens for the annual Rise of the Jack-o-Lanterns! This is where you walk through a dark country park with spooky music playing, all the while gawking at amazing pumpkins. It is always a lot of fun and this year, they made sure that the carvings were all new. In fact, all three years I’ve been there, they’ve changed it up every year. You can see pics from previous years here (Jack-o-Lantern Avengers) and here (Big Bang Theory pumpkins). Be on the lookout for some Modern Family pumpkins in this assortment.

Thanks to Allan Keyes for allowing me to use some of his pictures.

 

Imponderable #121: A Parking Lot in Yelm, Washington

In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. – Alfred Lord Tennyson 

All human males were as fascinated with cars as they were with breasts. – Anita Clenney 

You don’t know the half of it. – Mr. Blog.

*Sigh*  Aren’t you glad you subscribe to this blog?

Anyway, this really is a touching story, somehow, I think. Consider other tales of man/car love: Michael Knight and KITT, Al Bundy and his Dodge, the Duke boys and the General Lee. In not one of those cases did the car reciprocate. Bo and Luke never got flowers from their car, no matter how nicely they polished the bumpers. But this guy? “When I hold Vanilla [his special lovemobile] in my arms there’s a powerful energy that comes from her in response to that…” Really? Somehow I doubt that. Personally, I think he’s inhaled too much exhaust.

How will Cinnamon and Splash, his spurned lovers, deal with this?
The question is Imponderable.
