Oktoberfest was a fun event you can thank the Grangeville Merchants for. From the Flamingo Fun Run and Shirley’s dancers to the wiener dog races and bands, and everything in-between, what a good day. I regret to inform you all that our little chiweenie Scout did not win any prizes in the weenie dog race. In fact, she lost twice. However, it was still a lot of fun. Maybe next year ….
Now I am going to tell you something you probably don’t want to hear. I heard this on the John Tesh radio show last week and then I looked it up to confirm it. You know the pumpkin pie you eat every Thanksgiving and Christmas? Hold onto your shirts — it’s not pumpkin. You are eating squash. Apparently squash has more vitamins and is less pithy and stringy. FDA rules are lax on labeling on this as a pumpkin is a type of squash so the cans can be labeled “100 percent pumpkin.” I feel free to say this because I don’t care for pumpkin! You, on the other hand, may be saddened by this news .... or completely unaffected as you shout, “Where’s my pumpkin pie?!”
