Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater
October 9, 2013 —
Poor guy, that Peter, Peter. Had a wife and couldn’t keep her. Actually, I feel sorry for her, since (according to the nursery rhyme) he then resorted to putting the old ball-and-chain into a pumpkin shell “and there he kept her very well.” These words flashed through my mind while glancing at my upcoming events schedule (www.riverreporter.com/where-when) and sensing a theme emerging. Pie eating contests, hayrides and gourds are everywhere during this time of year as the harvest festivals roll on, and I soon realized that I had better make it a point to join in, in order to remain de rigueur.
