Menopause Pumpkins

You might think these pumpkins are men but they aren’t! They are Pumpkin Ladies who have pulled their hair back.

And guess what? Each one is in the middle of the Roller Coaster Ride-Menopause! You didn’t think pumpkins went through menopause? Just ask these women:

Hi I’m Paulette, the pumpkin on the left. I am in a BAD mood even though it’s Thanksgiving. GRRRR. Yesterday, everything had a happy orange glow but not today! Read my pumpkin lips, honey: GET OUT OF MY FACE! You go have yourself a Happy Holiday, but leave me alone.

Hi I’m Polly, the pumpkin in the middle. Life is good! Nothing can get me down. I just want to grin, grin, grin. Happy Holidays everyone! I wish I could pop out of the screen and hug you all! Since I can’t, I’m sending you a thousand winks!

Hi I’m Penelope, the pumpkin on the right. I don’t know if I’m in a good mood or a bad one. I was in a bad mood a minute ago, but now I’m in a great mood. Whoopee! Oh wait, now I’m in a bad mood. I could throw candy corn at the world! Oh hold on, now I’m as happy as a lark singing on a big oak tree in the fall. Oh wait, now I’m feeling like I want to kill a mocking bird. Drats.

See! I told you. Pumpkins go through menopause too.

The next time menopause makes you up, or down, or up and down, remember our Pumpkin Sisters! We are not alone.
