So I tried to get a picture of me and the pumpkin. Those of you who have been in my backyard can appreciate what a challenge that is - I have the patch surrounded by trellised tomatoes and pole beans. So, Bob did his best and got a shot of us through the fence:
The estimated weight is about 450 pounds so far. :)
I spent the weekend at the Endless Mountains Fiber Festival, where I got to see quite a few friends. Endless Mountains is a small event, which is nice and easy on the feet. If you haven't been there, you need to make a point of going, none of the hassles of the huge events, but enough vendors to get what you want and actually be able to SPEND TIME TALKING WITH THEM.
I give it two thumbs up!
