A Very Strong Lady

And what have we here? A woman with extreme strength hidden under that ungainly driving coat.

She is lifting that heavy pumpkin with ease. Mayhap she has a future in a grocery store produce department, or it's a diet pumpkin -- you know, "lite."

    Nice reminder of fall!


  • Anvilcloud

    I guess that would be heavy. Possibly neither I not perhaps the artist thought of that as she looks so at ease.

  • Dawn

    At last, the perfect pumpkin. I think it takes my kids longer to pick out a pumpkin than a Christmas tree!

  • ~~Carol~~

    It must be very light, or else she has some very manly biceps under her jacket! Love her purple stockings!

    I think maybe that's an orange balloon or ball. Or she's one really strong lady. Thanks for the pic. Smiles, Sally

  • Debra

    I think it is a "lite" pumpkin. I love that her stockings match her hat plume.

    Oh yes Holly, by the looks of it that pumpkins should weigh 4 kgs or 8 pounds. Quite a load to life...strong woman indeed.
