    I grew up in New York State, I remember some pretty chilly Halloweens but never snow! If I never saw snow again I would be happy!

    I don’t have a clue! I spent the afternoon making White Chili for a cook off at church tomorrow night. Got it all put together and in the fridge, tomorrow it will go into the crock pot to cook. Maybe a grilled cheese sandwich.

    I used to do things like that but where I am now I would be the only one to see them. I don’t even decorate for Christmas any more since I am totally hidden back here. I love the pictures!

    Gayle I have two different varieties of them and they both stay in the ground all winter. In fact they really should be divided but I doubt I will get it done this fall. I don’t even cover mine except for what pine straw drops on them.

    Better late than never but I finally made it here. I slept late and had 4 dogs and a cat crazy because they didn’t get their breakfast on time. I am trying to do what the doctor says about sitting, standing, bending but sometimes I revert to my old habits. I need to get outside soon and get some more things cut back. Like it or not winter will come and I hope I can be ready for that. Since we live on the main road going from one county to ours kids don’t trick or treat here, instead most of the churches have parties for that. Ours will be tomorrow night so I will be there for that.

    Good evening all..I spent some time in the yard this morning, it was cool but sunny and comfortable. Then I had to come in and get ready to go to the chiropractor this afternoon. She really did a lot to get my back straightened out, it feels good tonight for the first time in months and no drugs! I do have to go back twice next week then it should be all better…if I don’t do something stupid.
    Had some supper and cleaned up the kitchen. Will watch something on tv before I go to bed. DD#3 called tonight to say good bye..she leaves at midnight for a 14 hour flight to Dubai where she will do air traffic control for at least one year. I am not happy about it but she is a grown woman and has always tested her limits so all I can do is pray she is safe.
    See y’all in the morning.

    On my way into town the leaves were beautiful. Yellows, oranges, reds! Of course I didn’t have the camera with me but I was surprised they had turned so quickly since they were all still green two days ago. And we haven’t had a frost yet but I guess they knew it was time.

    Charlie trust me I couldn’t make up some of the things that I have seen or done in my life. I hope you start feeling better soon.

    DD shared some of her Shepherd’s Pie with me so I didn’t have to cook. It was good. Later I probably will have some Mint chocolate chip ice cream if there is room for it.

    I did see that on the news tonight Gayle. And they said that the debris could be hazardous to anyone who touches it. All of the chemicals would make your skin peel off or worse.
    It will take a long time to get all of that debris found and picked up. I also heard on the noon news that it was deliberately detonated because the launch manager realized in the beginning that there was a problem. Much safer to blow it up where it was than to have it explode over inhabited areas. What a shame, so much money and all of the school kids experiments that were on that too.

    When I was in college there were animal sciences classes there too. One morning we opened our walk in cooler to find…a dead horse! The vet came later and did a necropsy in our cooler, then they came and hauled the horse to…the dog food plant!!! When the wind was right there was no way to escape that smell. We had to clean the cooler up before we could use it again…not a pleasant thing. This plant was one of the better known dog food makers.
