Pumpkin Show #3

Today is our FUREND   BARB's Birfday....  she lives in OZ and does not have a blog... butt she DOES read ours... and ROXY's...   (and Dui and Bella's).       HAPPY BIRFDAY BARB.


Now today we want to show you the GIANT Pumpkin that took the BIG   KING Prize this year..


 We get our pics taken with this sign every year...     Remember it Ernie????       OF COURSE I do Frankie...  
 They have huge wagons with every type and COLOR of pumpkins... and Gourds and Squash
 And every SIZE of each you can imagine...

 Every year they put up the PUMPKIN TOWER... we love that...
 The Circleville Pumpkin show BEGAN in 1903    and took 3 years off during the war...
    THAT makes this the 108th Year...
 The biggest pumpkin ever... was in 2009   and it weighed 1,636 pounds.... butt THIS YEAR....  they had an even BIGGER one...  
     LOOK AT IT FRANKIE.... the thingy is HUGE...
  It surely is Ernie...  it weighed in at a WHOPPING    1,964 #'s... which is 328#'s Heavier than 2009.

Mom could make a LOT of COOKIES and PIES with that thingy... FUR SURE.
 HEY DAD... your SHOE is Photo Bombing US...               The Second largest pumpkin this year weighed 1,714   and THAT was even bigger than the OLD '09 record...       Must have been a GOOD year fur Pumpkins.              NEXT year they will be selling the SEEDS from THIS big guy...  They do that Every year also...    
     We wonder how many seeds are IN there.
 Here are some more of the Pumpkin CRAFT THINGYS that were fur sale along the way...
HEY..... we have been getting comments from NEW FURENDS and when we click on their names... so we can go and find and FOLLOW their Blogs...  we get this STRANGE SCREEN that does NOT seem to actually be their BLOG and has no way we can FOLLOW...    
    Anybuddy know what to do about that?          The other day a new commentor  asked fur the RECIPE fur Pie Crust...  and we could NOT find a way to get in touch with them...  
     We like the OLD Blogger where you clicked a comment Name and it took you to where you could find their blog... EASY PEASY...      JUST SAYIN...

PUMPKIN !!!! Can't miss those beauts eh? Thanks for standing beside them guys, so we could get a sense of scale...

Now, I think you mean that the name takes you to the Google Profile which ought to show what has been posted. It doesn't go directly to the linkys and bio page, which IS a bit of an irritation, but minor once you know that all you have to do is go to the 'about' tab under the name banner and down the page you should find the active blog links (and tubular and whateva...)

Something I find strange is that some folks when the comment, come through with their email reply in place (like yours) so I can respond, when appropriate. Many though, come through as 'noreply blogger' and yet I suppose they have come through the same way as everyone else... can't figure it out. Hey ho... Hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

You boys look great w the great pumpkins! Your furs are very complimentary...BUTT...your Dad needs to better coordinate his paw wear.
Our search engine is Google chrome. The Google plus circle is probably what you are getting. When regular folks sign up to be members this happens! Mom always turns down the request to join the circle.
Hugs
Madi your bfff
