Well, the #20 Georgia Bulldogs beat the #9 Florida Gators late this afternoon in football down in Jacksonville (Georgia Tech was idle in anticipation of a Thursday night game with Virginia Tech later this week.)
I have to commend both Georgia and Florida for providing a fairly exciting game, punctuated with the usual vulgar behavior of Young athletes that resulted in numerous penalties for things like "unsportsmanlike conduct" and "facemasking."
After the dust cleared here on our little island around noon with the fan's departure we snuck out to the grocery store for some last minute shopping prior to entertaining guests and cooking two of my soon to be famous pizza recipes for dinner. That event went off as planned and now I'm sitting around belching while trying to catch up on the evening's news.
The past week's grocery store visits have caused me to continue to be disappointed by the quality of the pumpkins available this year because of Bush/Cheney's maniac dabblings and the effects of Man-Made global warming induced drought.

Last year I acquired several nice pumpkins, including this 120 pound fellow shown strapped down in the back of my Chevy Suburban:
For those of you that weren't around as readers last year, here's Mr. Giant PumpKing sitting on a garden wagon in mid-carving at a local elementary school (the walls were over 4" thick and there was over 12 pounds of seeds inside.)
More exciting "PumpKing" reruns to follow unless I can find some new subject matter....
