and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.”

It does. Of course because of the freak snowstorm, you never know it now. The snow is melting, but someone made a snowman with a pumpkin for a head. I wouldn't mind getting a picture of that before it melts.

I really wish I did, Karen. I can see something beautiful and appreciate it, but I can't capture it myself. How about you?

“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” ~ Stephen King, Salem's Lot

Michelle Gilmore | 3220 comments Yesterday I was helping my Dad rake up the leaves- the yard hass way too many trees- I started thinking "fall isn't so pretty anymore" LOL!!!!!!


message 35: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Awww! That is so neat, ✿M✿, that you dad is still alive. I miss mine terribly. Treasure those moments... even if they involved raking leaves.

I consider myself fortunate. We had a good time. The neighbors cat was supervising us the whole time, and since he looks that cat from Pet Cemetary, we worked really fast, LOL!!!
