I watched The Princess Bride for the umpteenth time again today.
(It came on TV suddenly; what else could I do?)
I was playing on Facebook and Twitter at the same , where I encountered a bunch of pumpkin stuff. This spurred a random thought —
Are there any Princess Bride pumpkin carvings out there?
As you wish!

About this time every year, I am amazed at the pumpkins that folks create.
Not the pies — although I appreciate those, too — but the pumpkin carvings that I see on porches, stoops and online. They just get more extreme and extraordinary every Halloween.
In fact, I saw one today that touched my inner gourd.
Girl! I hear that.

Halloween is a little more than a month away, and I’m already pumpkin’ed out.
Pumpkin Swirl cheesecake. Pumpkin cake donuts. Pumpkin Spice vodka. And of course, the granddaddy of them all —
Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte.
I hit the wall this week when I ran out of my regular shampoo and was forced to use a bottle in the cabinet of none other than…
I love the pie at Thanksgiving, but walking around as a pumpkin head?
No. No, thank you.

Did your Thanksgiving feast yesterday include pumpkin pie?
If the answer is no, it may not have been the result of poor menu planning. Your host or hostess may have been the victim of…
The Great Pumpkin Crisis of 2009
The what, you say?
The Great Pumpkin Crisis…the quietest food crisis since the Great Waffle Shortage just a few weeks ago.
Apparently heavy rains in Morton, Illinois — the Pumpkin Capital of the United States — depleted its pumpkin crop, and since Morton supplies Libby with 85 percent of its pumpkin, pie shells around the country were empty yesterday.
Not too many people, as it turns out. Like waffles, pumpkin is not a food stuff that incites screams of panic and outrage when it goes missing. No doubt yesterday cooks replaced the pie filling with sweet potato or pecan on their Turkey Day menu.
If there had been a beer shortage — well, let’s just say the football games might have been canceled.
I’m guessing only Linus cried…alone, in the pumpkin patch.
