Lynn's Comments: Friends of ours held a pumpkin carving contest every year on the porch of their big North Bay home. There were pumpkins of all colours, shapes and sizes, and the resulting array of faces and pumpkin personalities, which decorated their outdoor staircase, was something we'll always remember.
Lynn's Comments: This scenario is from a Little Lulu cartoon I read as a kid. Little Lulu had found a potato which looked exactly like her friend Tubby. When he found out, he went crazy and chased her all over town to get it. The story line ended with him eating the raw potato. I thought it was hilarious! Funny--the things you remember.
Lynn's Comments: One of the many things about Ontario that I miss is the fall harvest. Along with the spectacular fall colours were the outdoor markets with their piles of pumpkins, crates of apples, fresh veg and homemade items of all kinds. Getting the Halloween pumpkin meant a long ride in the country to a big family farm where we'd buy produce and pumpkins, ride the hay wagon, and have coffee with friends. A signature pastry the family sold from their kitchen was a raspberry turnover to die for! You haven't tasted heaven until you’ve had one of these. Reading this Sunday strip brings back all those wonderful memories.
