BROWN EYED SUSANS
It's one of those days that had a hint of early fall. Temperatures were cool under a heavy overcast this morning. As a rule the season begins to change about mid August with the coming of colder nights & cooler days. I have a feeling it may be earlier this year because we have not really had any summer weather. I have always liked the first stirrings of early Autumn in the late August air. There is a cozy feeling about it, a sense of quiet as the hustle bustle & stress of summer draws to a close. It is not only a change of seasons, it signals the coming change of mundane routine as well. And it's this change I look forward to. Time to shake off the lethargic summer & begin anew the plans for winter ahead. If you are RVing snowbirds like we are it is a time of excitement & anticipation. Still months away but to-day's weather reminded me of the coming change. A YOUNG ROBIN
I'm thinking we have a squirrel living in our china cabinet. Kelly keeps all her stuff in there & while looking for some brown sugar to put on my oatmeal this morning I came across quite a stash of nuts. Figured I'd better take a picture before she got home just in case the squirrel decided to re-locate it's stuff. Must be one very smart squirrel though to actually put the nuts in labeled cans. I've always said that animals are a whole lot smarter than we humans are & by golly here is living proof!! MUST BE A SQUIRREL IN KELLY'S CUPBOARD
Had an email this morning from fellow blogger JERRY in which he made mention of beards. Well, that got me to thinking of why I have a beard. No, it wasn't to try & look cool like Hemmingway or one of the ZZ Top guys. Not even to look like Harry Potter's Professor Dumbledore. I simply grew it.......to hide my face!! I've always had a jutting chin that tried it's hardest to bend itself up & touch my lower lip. A few years back I also developed a bit of a floppy chin waddle where my head is glued onto my neck. Figured the best way to hide those two problems was to simply cover those areas with a bunch of hair......walla, a beard!! It has worked so well that I am now in the process of growing my hair longer in hopes that it will eventually cover up the rest of me. And now you know.............................:)) AN OLD WOODEN FOOT BRIDGE IN THE HULLETT MARSH
