OFF TO JAIL AGAIN -- PUMKINS GALORE
Our destination. Can you find our jail, the Hotel California San Francisco in Huehuetenango, Huehuetenango, Guatemala? [Map courtesy of World 66 Travel Guide (link)]
We, Mrs. Jim is coming too, will be staying at the hotel when we aren't working at the orphanage. (link)
A pumkin patch for you
Pie pumpkins look like this. They are smaller and more tender so they make delicious pies and other desserts.
Pumpkin pie is my favorite vegetable!
Did you ever see a white pumpkin? Or eat one? I don't think they are good to eat.
Beneath that white rind is a bunch of orange pumpkin. (link to CBS News story)
Our Kroger store had this nice display for pumpkins and gourds.
Kroger also had a lot items for the trick-or-treaters.
Lest you think I'm partial to Kroger, here is what I found at WalMart. They are into the Halloween game too.
Pumpkin pie is INDEED a grrreat veggie!!!!!
Enjoy your immurement!
Take pictures! Bring back the interesting tidbits to blob about and share them with us upon your return. I can’t wait to hear about it.
Huggles and Love,
Have a wonderful week!

Love the pumpkin pictures.
you are a busy soul. Don't you ever need some rest? Or is it the golfing that keeps you in such great shape.
You certainly are filling your years with life. Give my best to your wife, she must be quite a trooperine too.
Halloween is strange to me, though the shops are selling plastic pumpkins and children dress up like skeletons begging for treats.
We have no tradition for the Halloween feast, and then it rather seems like a hollow in thing to me. Commerce only.
We have All Saints Day tomorrow, even though Norway has been a protestant country for almost five hundred years.
How weird is that?
