A WIN-WIN PHOTO SITUATION FOR ALL OF US

ALONG THE FRINGE OF THE HULLETT MARSH
An absolutely gorgeous Autumn day here in Southwestern Ontario Canada with sunshine and warmer 70F daytime temperatures despite a low of 37F overnight.  Truly, the nicest part of the year is upon us right now.

EARLY MORNING'S SOFT LIGHT AWAITS THE FARMER'S RETURN
SOUTHERN ONTARIO'S COUNTRYSIDE IS BUSY WITH THIS YEARS BEAN HARVEST
CORNFIELD'S ARE ALWAYS LAST TO BE HARVESTED FOR THE SEASON
Our morning wanderings took us over to the Hullett Marsh but we wisely stayed on its fringe.  With the amount of gunfire going on I knew animals were dying and it was no place for Pheebs and I.  I'm so thankful my hunting interests are done with a camera and not a gun.  A big thank-you to the powers that be which changed my mind on that whole gun hunting thing when I was a young teenager.

ALTHOUGH  I COULD HEAR GUNFIRE OUT THERE I DIDN'T SEE ANY HUNTERS
We meandered around a number of country roads stopping here and there to enjoy the scenery and bask in the ambiance of the morning.  Another very fine day to have the privilege of being outside.


AUTUMN CROCUS'S
Home again around 10:30 I again spent time around the yard doing some raking, trimming a few shrubs, and carrying a few more things to the sheds for winter storage.


Thanks for the Birthday wishes folks.  Had Kelly not reminded me Wednesday morning it might have just quietly slipped right on by me.  And I'd like to thank my readers once again for your continued kind support and comments regarding my blog's photos.  It's a win-win situation for all of us when you enjoy looking at my photos as much as I enjoy taking them:))

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Little Johnny and his family lived in the country, and as a result, seldom had guests. He was eager to help his mother after his father appeared with two dinner guests from the office.  When the dinner was nearly over, Little Johnny went to the kitchen and proudly carried in the first piece of apple pie, giving it to his father who passed it to a guest.  Little Johnny came in with a second piece of pie and gave it to his father, who again gave it to a guest.  This was too much for Little Johnny, who said, "It's no use, Dad. The pieces are all the same size."

  3. Just beautiful! I changed directions when walking the pup today too. I couldn't tell where the gunshots were coming from so we stayed on the main road. She missed having her free run, but her coloring is too much like a deer for safety.

  5. My first husband was a Navy man from Colorado. Our first fall together, he proudly took me home for deer season. The first day of the season, we headed into the mountains to hunt deer. We got out of the truck, looked around and immediately saw that bunches of hunters were watching me from the hillsides ... through the scopes on their rifles. I told my husband to take me back to the house. That season, a young man grabbed the barrel of his rifle and pulled it out of his truck. He did not survive. That was my first and last hunting season, Fall 1960.

    Love your pictures today.
