This is getting taken a little out of context - the context of my original comment was that in New Zealand adults don't get into it, as it is not a kiwi tradition, but that is changing. I in no way dispute that this is the case in the US, as I already know that to no be true at that many adult do get into the spirit of Halloween over there. :D

 

Please take this completely tongue in cheek....Whats wrong :D with adults in NZ? :)

 

Seriously though maybe the Great G-P will make a stop there for you and maybe at the Cachetoberfest Im going to this weekend. :)

 

LMAO...

 

:D We take our selves seriously! :D:):)

 

I'm hoping he will make a stop here and drop one of those cool coins off! :D I have my pumpkin seeds in hand. Baby Bear... too small... Peek A Boo... too small... Jack Harverst... better... Atlantic Giant... Now THAT sounds about right!!! Shame I only have seeds of the other ones :D

 

We just never grew up with Halloween, but at least our kids are, so there is hope for future generations of adults! :D:laughing:

 

I'm going to start looking around to see if I can find a "real" pumpkin - ie. an orange one - as I am determined to make a jack-o-lantern... and not out of one of the greeny/grey ones we usually have here. I'm not sure I will have much luck, but I'm going to try!! Failing that I may have to make a flame proof paper mache one! :)

I believe! :D

 

I too believe!

 

The pumpkin crop here in MIchigan isn't very good this year because of the weather. I sure hope that it doesn't keep the Great Geo-Pumpkin away.

 

I believe, I believe, I believe. Oh Great Pumpkin please don't leave me sitting in the patch again this year.

 

Congrats to all the recent recipients. I love the idea of all the mystery geocoins.

They sell foam ones in craft stores here, I'm not sure but you may be able to carve one of them, I can look around and see if you want! Plus being foam they would be very light to ship!

We were at the GeocoinFest in Texas, and I am so glad the GeoPumpkin gifted MustangJoni with his/her special coin. She and MamaCache worked very hard and put on an awesome Event!!

 

Thank you GeoPumpkin, for treating them to your beautiful coin! I am sorry we didn't see you at the Event (or maybe we DID see you, but you were in costume, so we didn't know it was you!!) lol

 

Oh well, we will cross our fingers and hope you find your way to Abilene so that we may add you to OUR collection!!

Maybe……..Yes, maybe…Oh, Some day. I see a time when Humans will no longer partake of the flesh of our Orange brethren. Especially during this time of Harvest. When millions of our Pumpkin friends are savagely removed from their homes. Gathered, “No I say,” herded like lowly beasts. Barbarically displayed outside local markets in their cardboard prisons. Brothers and Sisters, did you know within your own Towns and States parents, far and wide, still practice the primitive ritual of……. STEMMING. “SHAME”, I say. Can you imagine parents leading their children through the Pumpkin Patch stalking their prey. Ready at a moments notice to twist, snap, and cut “THEIR PUMPKIN” from the Orange Collective. Brothers and Sisters…. I cry knowing the fear our round robust friends must live under, “EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES.”…….. Oh, Please Brothers and Sisters is it possi………………

 

Live to serve The Great Pumpkin

~ FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS SITTING ON A GATE ~

 

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,

The first one said,

"Oh my, it's getting late."

The second one said,

"But we don't care."

The third one said,

"I see witches in the air."

The fourth one said,

"Let's run, and run, and run."

The fifth one said,

"Get ready for some fun."

Then whoosh went the wind,

and out went the lights,

And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

Dashing through the streets in our costumes bright and gay

To each house we go laughing all the way

Halloween is here, making spirits bright

What fun it is to trick-or-treat

And sing pumpkin carols tonight!

 

Oh Pumpkin bells, Pumpkin bells

Ringing loud and clear

Oh what fun great pumpkin brings

When Halloween is here.

 

Deck the patch with orange and black Fa la la la la, la la la la

Take along your goody sack Fa la la la la, la la la la

Don we now our weird apparel Fa la la la la, la la la la

Toll the ancient pumpkin carol Fa la la la la, la la la la

See the great one rise before us Fa la la la la, la la la la

As we sing the pumpkin chorus Fa la la la la, la la la la

Follow him as he ascends Fa la la la la, la la la la

Join with true great pumpkin friends. Fa la la la la, la la la la

 

I'm dreaming of the great pumpkin

Just like I do this time each year.

When he brings nice toys

To good girls and boys

Who wait for him to appear.

 

I'm dreaming of the great pumpkin

With every pumpkin card I write.

May your jack-o-lanterns burn bright

When the great pumpkin visits you tonight.

Jack -O'Lantern

 

The jack -o'lantern chuckled

Then winked his funny eye,

"I would rather be a pumpkin-face

Than be inside a pie!"

 

Jolly wolly pumpkin face

You're happy tell us why.

I'd rather be a pumpkin face

And not a pumpkin pie!

 

We have this one on the bullentine board at school. :laughing:

:laughing:

Thanks DD and AT. I don't know who's it by or I would have posted that too. Beky is starting to learn it in school. Would be funny to bring in the mystery coin for show and tell. (hint, hint, hint) :laughing::laughing:

I am sure my students would love to see one too! :laughing:

 

Here's another poem...

 

An orange pumpkin, fat as can be.

Carve a face so he can see.

Put in a candle, light the light.

A jack-o-lantern for Halloween night!

Pumpkins by the mouse.

 

Pumpkins by the fence.

Pumpkins by the cat.

Pumpkins by the scarecrow.

Pumkins by the hat.

Here other one :

 

Who's got the biggest

And who's didn't bust

Who's telling lies

And who can we trust

Who's keeping secrets

And who's helping out

Who's filled with confidence

And who's filled with doubt

Who used good seed

And who made do

It could be me

Or it could be you

The weigh-off is near

Everyone is tense

Remember the grass is always greener

On the other side of the fence

One day I found two pumpkin seeds.

I planted one and pulled the weeds.

It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.

A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.

The pumpkin was quite round and fat.

(I really am quite proud of that.)

But there is something I'll admit

That has me worried just a bit.

I ate the other seed, you see.

Now will it grow inside of me?

Yep...I Believe!!!!! I saw it happen!

 

It was Geocoinfest Norcal and it was supposed to be a wee spot of Orange and Black trash as I hear! As it was in the process of an event CITOing the lucky finder thought...Hmmmmm this feels like there is a coin in this here Orange and Black rubbish-YEP! This was the sight of the first Great GeoPumpkin that I heard of and it was found by Frivlas!

 

Great find of the Great GeoPumpkin! She even asked me if I had anything to do with it!!!!!!...I wish~ as for it would probaly ensure me one of my own in my collection...Untill then all I can hope for is a great Geopumpkin drop up here in Northern Cali!

 

No Pumpkin Pie...I promise!

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

 

The World's Worst Cacher manages to snag a Pumpkin geocoin from the Great One!

 

I took off early from work this afternoon to run some errands including getting food for the church potluck tomorrow. Just before heading out of my office I got a GC notice saying that the Great Pumpkin had visited this cache. I detoured from my errands hoping I would make it in time.

 

I was in luck.

 

I wanted to log sooner, but had to get my errands run and home before sundown.

 

Makes me for this day a little less worse than usual . . . . I guess! Though it took me a few minutes to find my own cache.

What a great looking coin, these mystery coins rock it creates such positive light on geocoins and this sport and such a great feeling for those who are lucky enough to get one.

 

I just want to say thanks, whoever you are.

Where can I watch to see where these cute coins are placed?

Congrats to all the lucky finders (So far ;) )

 

I have to be honest and admit the Halloween has only just become popular in NZ :P Which meant I missed out as a kid B) , well a little kid anyway :o . But never fear, Elmo's here :unsure: We have a stash of treats for all those that pay us a visit on the "Great" night.

 

You guys over there certainly know how to have fun :P
