The Keeper

More from the apple orchard visit.  Not sure if this guy is keeping guard over the porta-johns to prevent rioting by the skeletons, or to keep the lines in order on crowded days, or to make sure everyone uses the hand sanitizer when they come out...but guard he does.

Drunk Duck?

Went to the cider mill a week or so ago...there was a great kids area including this duck race game.  You pumped the water into the trough by way of an old fashioned pump.  This little guy could not stay upright...think he drank too much hard cider...lucky he didn't drown.

Little Tin Soldiers... they aren't tin and they aren't little...but it looks like they are guarding the liberty bell, of course it isn't the REAL liberty bell...yeh yeh yeh..its ALL fake...

Back in July I was at Bronner's Christmas everyday but about 3.  Periodically you will be seeing scenes from there...After all, its only 103 days 'til Christmas (and somedays there is a dearth of photo ops).

PS:  I sat my bad self down on the bench, but those two boys totally ignored me...sigh...

Yesterday was the apple orchard visit..quintessential autumn activity here in Michigan.  We looked up and the sun was surrounded by what appeared to be a fact it is called a sun dog...Had never seen one actually surround the sun...Now I have to wonder...when there is a ring around the that a moondog?

Not Any More

These are no longer "standard" equipment, but I remember them a child, ours was wall mounted.  (Viv, I was ready to post this the other day and saw your dial phone...freaky)

I found some artwork I liked for my oh so long empty bedroom wall.  These are the tools I used to get them up on the wall.

So I colored my hair last night.  Anyone who knows me knows that we never know what color wll ultimately shine.  I was a bit concerned after it dried...swear..pinkish and orangeish but in the light of day, its mainly normal.

Date Night at the Depot

Had reason to stop by the Home Depot last week.  Homer, here, was the best looking dude in the place...well...I do think that guy in the paint department is kind of cute...but...
