Pumpkins cut out of the patch fool drivers on the San Diego streets into believing the shy stand inhelper in the local haunt is a familiar one. The October orange round starers, and winkers, turn heads.
The first long sleepy temptation in the Fall season waits in suspense.

Dare to yield to the silent settler.
This is a Passage for the Times.
