Then Nicci out on the wing finds

Yesterday How about climbing aboard?

After weighing thier giant goards
and then scouring them out, farmers in
Ohio yesterday offered their fabulous
fruit as canoes.

Those who paddled in the pumpkin
regatta say the monsters may float but
they're not stable and are even harder
to steer.

Some contestants went so far as
to install a motor.

But most just paddled with all
their might and hoped for a stiff
breeze.
