It was under pleasantly cool cloudy skies Richard and I headed out for our country road coffee cruise.  It was my turn to be the navigator and with Richard driving we managed to find our way around the areas rural roads without become lost or having to stop and ask for directions.  As if either on of us would ever do that!!


How nice this afternoon to be outside again ticking off things on my ‘to-do’ list.  Cleaned up and re-organized our wooden shed so now I can begin gathering up outside lawn ornaments and things for winter storage.  It’s a busy time of year for us and yes indeed our Autumn routines are finally in full swing.  To date either I  have transported about 20 Frogs to the Park’s larger pond or I have transported the same 3 frogs about 7 times…………………………


GROANER’S CORNER:(( A farmer passes by an insane asylum with a load of fertilizer. One of the inmates calls out, "Hey! Watcha hauling?"   "Fertilizer."  "Whaddaya gonna do with it?"  "Put it on my strawberries."  "Gee. We put cream on ours, and they call us crazy!"


The village blacksmith hired an enthusiastic new apprentice willing to work long, hard hours.
He instructed the boy, “When I take the shoe out of the fire, I’ll lay it on the anvil.  When I nod my head, you hit it with the hammer.”  The apprentice did exactly as he was told, and now he’s the new village blacksmith.


Knock Knock
Who's there?
Teddy who?
Teddy is the beginning of the rest of your life.


  1. You are enjoying this cooler weather and getting things all wrapped up for the winter ahead, looks like t's not gonna warm up much any more this fall.

  2. Fall is finally here and the cool weather with no humidity is welcome. Like your first picture with Pheebe.

  3. I'm ready for some 70's weather in 3 or 4 days, according to the forecast. I laughed at the village blacksmith story, but I have to admit I had to read it twice!

  4. As I looked at a squirrel today I wondered if he had jumped tree to tree back to my home. I know your feelings on that subject.

  5. All the frogs line up for the "great bucket ride" before hopping back to the little pond :-))) Beautiful last photo. You'll be rolling before too long!
