Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

Punkin Chunkin

Giving Thanks Day Number 4

I'm Thankful for fun weekends
where we do something different.
***************************************
We are about to start one of the those fun and different weekends today.  Ever hear of Punkin Chunkin?  It is held in Delaware and it's a contest to see who can launch a pumpkin the farthest on some kind of a launcher that people have made throughout the year.  Check out the link to learn more about it.
We are leaving in a few minutes for a weekend of fun!!  We will camp out in the FJ and tent Friday and Saturday nights.
I'm hoping to have some photos when we get back.
Enjoy your weekend.
Happyone : )

  5. YES! Of course I've heard of Pumpkin Chuckin'! Hasn't everybody? ,-) They do a program on it, on cable tv.

    What fun! Enjoy! Of course you will. And wishes for good weather, for tenting.

    Hummmmmmmmmmmmm....... "Tenting tonight... Tenting tonight... Tenting on the old camp grounds."
