Hamden hamlet hides just outside
the college town of Delhi,
where you'd be making an excellent
scholarly choice to send your
academic bound brat.
There wont be a chance in heck
of them getting into anything but
an education here.
If they've been especially naughty,
their first winter will forever cure them.
There simply is no choice
but to study in conditions similar to
the frozen tundras of Siberia.
I'm not sure if it would be funny or cruel.
Anyway, as I was passing through,
I couldn't help but notice the Scarecrow on County Road 26
pointing to Donnelly's Farm full of colorful gourds and squash...
and... of course,
Mr. Tom Donnelly hauling huge pumpkins from his patch to the sales area,
where his lovely wife, Ginny, was attentively assisting several customers.
I enjoyed listening to in depth explanations concerning bees, pollination and
the demise of dairy cattle in the area due to education - not government !
I thought to myself that men are kinda like pumpkins.
It seems like all the good ones are taken
they've had everything scraped out of their heads with a spoon.
So, have a look at the mini slide show here and do your Pumpkin pickin at Donnelly's
where the scenery is gorgeous and the prices are ridiculously reasonable !
How 'bout their pumpkin totem that's lit up at night !
Very cool !
