And so it begins... our intrepid heroes, Reggie, Bertie, and Gussie have discovered that, due to a tragic mistake, virtually every pumpkin farm in the country is sold out ... leaving them stranded without a Jack o' Lantern for Halloween!
Maybe we could reuse last year's? Isn't it out in the garage still?
I don't think so ... It's looking pretty moldy.
No scraping it clean again, I suppose. But there has to be something available, somewhere.
And so, our heroes set out in search of an answer, scouring the countryside past closed signs and farms picked clean of produce, until ...
Wait a minute! There's one!
Do you mean it? A pumpkin farm that's not sold out yet?
Bertie pointed to the rather dilapidated sign, tangled with weeds and too-tall grass.
They're not exactly overwhelming the public with advertising ... perhaps that's why they're not closed.
Comforting themselves with that notion, our heroes set off for the pumpkin farm ... and into the arms of sinister doom!!!!!!!
