Fall, Thanksgiving and Outdoor Wednesday

The trees are almost bare now.  Last Saturday the grandkids came over and we played in the leaves.  They also filled a leaf bag and my 30 gallonyard waste can full of leaves.  Then they collected a dollar each and played in the rest of them.
The Big C buried his sister

When I told them I was going to have
to cut this little oak tree down,
they decided to try to take it down
 with their bare hands!

For more outdoor wonders visit Susan at Southern Daydreamer!

Happy Thanksgiving to all.  The day after Thanksgiving, Alex's grandson Nathan graduates from boot camp over at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma.  Congratulations to him!

If you are traveling this weekend, be careful and safe, and take a moment to count your blessings, number one being an American!

Outdoor Wednesday - Fall trees

It's a strange fall this year.  Sunday we took a drive and the trees were just not in sync!  We have been having cool nights and warm, sunny days, which are supposed to be ideal for the trees.

So I took some pictures of the maple trees in my front yard which are doing pretty good this year with the colors.  Hope you enjoy them!

I haven't posted in Outdoor Wednesday in a while.  Join Susan at Southern Daydreamer for more outdoor shots.

See you later!

Voting Day

Today is voting day.  Its one of the most hotly contesed mid-terms I have ever seen!

Franklin Roosevelt said that in America, the only person who can deny you the right to vote is you yourself - by not voting. I think it was FDR...might have been Calvin Coolidge.  What DID Calvin Coolidge say???


And I'm talking the real vote - for those who make our laws at the polling place...not for Dancing With The Stars!

And they will give you a really neat sticker to wear too!

Go Vote!
