As I was out and about I noticed some trees had completely dropped and others hadn’t even started to change. Others are changing quickly and getting thinner.

What seems to slowly take place over weeks sometimes in looking at an individual tree, can change in a day or two. From colorful to naked.

The privacy provided by our summer lushness is disappearing. Soon to be replaced by the greyness of winter till the snow makes everything beautiful again for a few minutes till man grinds it back into grey slush.

But between then and now I hope to get out each day and attempt to share some of nature’s colors with anyone stopping by. But first, the leaf blower is out and ready to be fired up to clean off the decks which are already covered from a few oaks.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • When old neighbors move, so does part of the neighborhood history.
  • When something seems fishy it usually is.
  • Little things become more important the more they are ignored.
  • Our bedroom is getting a fresh coat of paint today. At least it’s warm enough to air out well.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
