I'm a little embarrassed (and, at the same time, a little proud) to say that we still have our Halloween pumpkin on our patio. At this point, it looks like a balloon that's about three-quarters deflated. I'm really starting to wonder: if we leave it out there, will it eventually disintegrate into nothing? How long will it take to disappear entirely? And are we really so redneck that we would leave it out there long enough to find out?
