It’s the Great Pumpkin, Martha Stewart! (but only if yor probation officer says so)

It's the Great Pumpkin, Martha Stewart.jpgDrama! Suspense! Excitement! Just your everday ordinary Pumpkin Festival in Windsor, Nova Scotia up in everyone’s favorite northerly neighbor. This year’s festival promises to be a real hum-dinger, thanks to the promised presence of Martha Stewart, everyone’s favorite formerly incarcerated domestic diva.

Martha had big plans to raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation by rowing a pumpkin across Lake Pesaquid — until she was stopped by the long arm of the law. Seems that Martha needs special clearance to leave the country — even to go to Canada! — and any such trip needs to be okayed by her probation officer. She was actually supposed to go this past Sunday; now, all they can do is wait, and hope.

We hope she can go, too, not only because it would be good for Canada but come on, it’s for charity. We will keep you posted. As Drudge would say, DEVELOPING…

UPDATE: Developed! She’s coming! HOORAY!
