Flotsam and Jetsam

I was down at the ferry landing yesterday afternoon with my mom, Asha, and one of her friends, taking a look at the floodwaters. After eight days of rain, the river is up at least twelve feet from normal, though it is down three feet from its mid-week peak.

As we were marveling at the sights -- how little of the ferry slip's normally sixteen foot-tall pilings we could see, the speed of the current, how high the ferry and it's tug were relative to the landing on the Rocky Hill side -- we spied in the flotsam and jetsam the most amusing things: pumpkins.

click me!

Yes, pumpkins, about one a minute zipping along in the current. Ain't life wonderful-odd?
