Ok, let me explain the nickname… When I was about 8 years old my dad took me out in our back yard and showed me how to plant pumpkins. I am not sure why, maybe because that was what he called me. I never liked the color orange either until I was in high school. I always thought it was a horrible color. It grew on me, like the pumpkins which I loved to grow and still have a love for them, even more now than I did when I was little.
