Now that the elections are over I feel it is time to take down my patriotic decorations which have been up since June. Flag day is June 14th so that is when I try to display my July decorations. Thanksgiving day is next week and I have grandkids visiting. I don't think it would be fair to confuse them with July decorations. Grandma enjoys each holiday and likes to decorate accordingly. I will be buying a pumpkin to make into a turkey to display in that empty spot on the porch. I sure hope there is a big fat pumpkins left over from halloween. Some years it is difficult to actually find pumpkins at this time of year. I think grocery stores quit stocking pumkins after halloween since few people actually make pumpkin pies from the original source.
