The photographs that popped up in my mind was some that I took in Cheyenne , WY.
We just stopped over for a day or two and stayed for a month. While we were there they held a state pumpkin competition. We saw an article in the local paper and decided to go and watch. You could feel the compassion and the sense of community in the air. It was fun to see all these huge pumpkins that only have a 90 day growing season.
I decided I wouldn’t want to go on a pumpkin diet.
These guys are all competitors and everyone was jumping in the help each other with there measuring and weighing.
This grandpa and his granddaughters were real proud of there pumpkin that weighed in about 500 pounds.
All these people are waiting to have there pumpkin weighed. This was just a small part of the crowd that was there.
The guy on the right in the gray shirt took the championship.
This was the champion!
We had a good time and stayed for the whole show.
There is one other picture of community that I want to show and that is this little boys community of his stuffed characters that he so proudly displayed for me.
