    Today I learned that gizmo pumpkins exist.

    This showed up on my local grocery store's (HEB) weekly ad. What's that quote? You were so preoccupied to see if you could, you didn't think to ask if you should?

    EDIT: Apparently these are not edible, technically being a gourd and not a true pumpkin, which I guess kinda makes it better. Sorta.

      Yeah….I am sure my neighbors will be thrilled to see this rotted pumpkin like thing on my porch. I guess if you are doing a whole house redecoration it can work..

      A centerpiece for the dinner table.
      Question if you are not in it, Are you out of your "gourd"?

    I am actually going to go to HEB tomorrow. If I see them, I'll take photo. If I buy them, please yell at me.

      Well, there’s a good possibility that I might be in central Texas before Halloween…
      If so, and if I can find the time, I might pick up a couple and have at ‘em with an airbrush. ;-)

        Mr. Bones I have Badger, Paasche, Iwata, Tamiya, and Thayer & Chandler airbrushes. One might think I was trying to “collect the whole set.” LOL

      Not trying to steal your thread, but not being from Texas I have no idea. Does HEB stand for something? And how do 'y'all' pronounce it? Like the e in bed? Or just the letters?

      Curious non-Texans minds want to know.

        Named after Howard Edward Butt…son of the founder Florence Butt. His initials became the name sometime after he took over…shortly after WWI as I understand it. I’ve always heard it pronounced as separate letters…as it’s used on their signage & other “propaganda.” H-E-B

        Being a non-Texan myself though…I could be completely incorrect. LOL

        You're correct. It's a grocery store that started (I think) in San Antonio and started expanding throughout most of the state in the early 1990s. They have effectively destroyed all of their competition (with the possible exception of Kroger) in the past two decades and have a very strong following. The store name is pronounced as the initials, H-E-B.

        Actually it started in Kerrville, a bit north of SA, and then expanded (as my M-I-L proudly tells me all the time). My S-I-L worked for their charitable arm for a bit.
