Saturday stuff


I just love these trees.  They are beautiful every year, and it is interesting watching their various stages of fall progression.  This photo tells the wordless tale.  The trees over on the L will soon look just as red as those on the R, unless we get more wind and rain…then we have piles of leaves blown everywhere!  There is a cemetery just behind the trees on the R, so the pretty leaves provide a perfect covering for that resting place.

Across the street from the cemetery is a former bank, turned library, that was eventually outgrown.  Grants are providing a new building, so this old structure is being torn down, making room for a modern, larger facility.  The only thing constant is change, right?


And speaking of change, it is time to change from a mowing mode to leaf-sucking mode at our RV park.  The leaves are far more problems to us than the grass is, another part of ownership that we didn’t know or even think about when we built the park back in ‘95.  So Dick is over playing in the leaves, and I am getting ready for a dinner party for 10 tonight.  No, I don’t want to trade jobs, honey.  I’m enjoying smelling the Cuban Pork that is cooking in the crock pot.  Yumm…folks arrive at 5.  Bring a non-meat dish and come on over. We’re stirring up some good stuff!

Halloween critters

Poor Dick. But at least he's riding, right? You dish sounds delish! I'm counting calories and fat grams. How many does that dish have? TOO! Enjoy your dinner party!

Big hugs :]

I love those trees also, and I know where they are. Thanks for you kindness.

Yes those leaves make things tough don't they. Yes they do.

I wish I was closer so we could bring a non-meat dish and enjoy some fine company, but we are here in rainy California. We'll see you in February though. Can't wait.

Have a terrific day and weekend honey. Big hugs coming your way. :)

We will pop in for some TREATS (as long as there aren't too many TRICKS) this evening in the midst of the kids' Halloween festivities. Granddad Ralph gets to rest in peace near those tress on the right. One more thing- I don't think the part of the bank/library that is still standing will be torn down. I think they're adding on/out from the big whole and remodeling the inside of the main structure. We're "frequent flyers" at the library, so that's what I remember from the plans on display. We'll see if memory serves me (or fails me as it is sometimes wont to do!)
