skytyping and pumpkins

I'd never have noticed the skytyping if a little girl at the Autry Farmers' Market hadn't been looking up with huge excitement - but there were six planes traveling in close formation across the sky, phutting out the letters that formed, I think, their own self advertisement.   It's kind of crazy to write across the sun - no way can one look up at this (I pointed the camera, and hoped).  This particular team of Skytypers have been in action since 1932 (as a concept, one presumes, rather than as increasingly aged aviators), when they first advertised Pepsi Cola. 

The pumpkins were fine, too, and did very well without any advertisement.
