Luckily, he came out of the house when he saw me and my camera; he loves to talk about his pumpkins. The big one in the sling is over 800 pounds. It won first prize at the N.C. County Fair, netting him over a thousand bucks. He built this pulley thing in order to move it. Some of the others are 600 pounds. He belongs to a pumpkin growing club. SO, that is his story! He will be on our T.V. news this week!!
“This Absalom…When he cut his hair—he always cut it short in the spring because it had grown so heavy—the weight of the hair from his head was over two pounds!”
