    My fantasy is that I would have something clever and relevant to say about this post.

      I seem to be caught in the net of your fantasy because I feel you have added something clever and relevant.

    This is great! My favorites are Voldemort, Eeyore and Festin. This would certainly be an entertaining game to watch. No points for me—I didn’t get the Andy Griffith reference.

    P.S. I was just at Trader Joe’s and thought of you while I was there amongst all of the pumpkin products. (It’s strange that you can think of someone you’ve never met in person—the internet is wild that way). The most ridiculous item was pumpkin dog treats.

      Fantastic! After I posted this I thought it might be too far out for anyone to get. And now you know about Andy Griffith.

      P.S. I’m pretty sure all three of our dogs have had pumpkin treats and liked them. But I don’t think they’ve shown a stronger preference for pumpkin over any other kind of treats. It is good for digestion, but only in the form of whole pumpkin. And that can be hard to find when pumpkin is going into everything else.
