It’s the Great Pumpkin, Norman Rockwell


I came across this roadside pumpkin farmstand in Hadley, Massachusetts. Or maybe it was South Hadley.


The $1.00 pumpkin pile needs some love.


The Great Pumpkin was to be found in Norman Rockwell’s hometown, Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Smooshin’ It Old School


At Herrell’s Ice Cream in Northampton. I stood in line for 45 minutes at the original in Davis Square some 35 years or so ago. The wait this night was only 30 minutes. The guy behind me insisted on repeatedly singing the Bare Naked Ladies song “If I Had a Million Dollars”. I wanted to put him in a real green dress and send him home with Kraft dinner. Nonetheless, it was worth the wait.
