They seek him here, they seek him there...

POLICE NOTICE
Inspectors are looking for the thief who stole Mr Pumpernickel. Taken from the front doorstep of a London house at approximately 1900 on October 31st, after just 20 minutes in the public eye.
If seen, Mr Pumpernickel has a distinctive greeny orange birthmark over his cheek, due to the wet English summer. He has one arched eyebrow. If found, inform interpump.

Yes, Mr Pumpernickel had a very short spell as our Halloween pumpkin. Such was his appealing face, someone decided to steal him minutes after we put him out on the doorstep. Or maybe he has made a bid for freedom...any sightings, let us know. Just to let you know that next week's vegetable will be the potato. And I won't be leaving out any on our doorstep. ( All those Five a Day thieves feeding their vegetable habit....)

    That is true. And as Freddie said, "Well at least we ate its contents."

  3. Poor Mr. Pumpernickel!!!Years ago my daughters elementary school would have a pumpkin making contest. My daughter won 4 years in a row. She was devastated and ran home crying when Henrietta was found on the roadside on her way to school.

  4. Rather than neighborhood veg junkies with their 5-a-day habits, I like to think Mr P was struck with a lust for adventure and wandered off...

  5. That is rotten! We lost a purple bat lantern, but I didn't mind too much as it was a fun night and the children all enjoyed visiting! I will keep an eye out for Mr Pumpernickel, just in case he has crossed the border!

  8. Now you see I'd have been more than a little cross about that so good for you for being gracious and having a sense of humour about it.

  9. Someone stole your jack-o-lantern? Sometimes, the idea of what constitutes a Halloween prank makes me rather cross. I'm sorry yours was taken (or decided to make a run for it rather than be roasted for dinner once his duty as a lantern was done).
    And, sadly, jack-o-lantern kidnappings rarely end well for the victim.
