Pumpkins and lots of things made out of pumpkin.
Like Sonic's Pumpkin Pie Shakes.
Which are very good, by the way.
Sorry, I don't have a photo of one.
Then a couple of weeks ago I had one of these.
A Dairy Queen Pumpkin Pie Blizzard.
Actual bits of pie crust swirled throughout the Blizzard.
I. LOVED. IT.
The following week AD and I took our trip to Branson.
There's an Andy's Frozen Custard in Springfield, Missouri.
Well, maybe more than one. But we pass right by this one on the way to Branson. You may remember because I've written about it before.
They had a sign that read: Pumpkin Pie Concrete.
We didn't stop right then but I knew we would on our return trip.
(Note that there is an Andy's in Branson too. It's just that I look forward to stopping at this particular one when we're over that way.)
Anyway - and this is just my humble opinion - Andy's Pumpkin Pie Concrete blows Sonic's and DQ's pumpkin ice cream treats OUT. OF. THE. WATER!!!!!*
There was a sign that said each Concrete contains a slice of pumpkin pie. I'm a believer too. Because:
1. The smell of pumpkin pies baking was coming from inside.
2. I saw one or two (small) chunks of pie in my Concrete.
If anyone has enjoyed an Andy's Pumpkin Pie Concrete, I'd love for you to leave your opinion in a comment.
If you haven't I'm truly sorry. But still leave me a comment. They'll be my virtual treats for the day.
Which brings me to Halloween.
I did buy Mikey a little get-up for Halloween but didn't get a picture.
So, I'll leave you with this picture from the late '70s of my two young'uns.
Son, this one's for you.
Next year maybe you won't tell me how sorry you feel for Mikey that I dress him up for Halloween photos.
He does get treats you know.
*Disclaimer: The only tie I have to Andy's (or Sonic, or Dairy Queen) is that I am a customer, period. They don't know me from Eve. And I would never turn down a Sonic Pumpkin Pie shake OR a DQ Pumpkin Pie Blizzard.
