Natural holiday decorations

It's been a busy week as well as a cold and snowy one here.

We've had wonderful visits with friends as well as great food over this holiday weekend. Much to be thankful for.

Change of seasons

Now it's the cold and snow of winter. But each season has its marvelous beauty. As I drove to work this morning, the sky had cleared a bit (before the next storm rolled in), and I was surprised to see a big, full moon edged by mauve and pink clouds. I couldn't snap a picture because I was dealing with a slick road. But the image remained all day, even when the skies turned gray again.

Fall flashback

This was taken on a lovely day in September during a walk by the river. It's cold and gray now, with rain and snow mix, and an arctic front is moving through, which is predicted to give us a very cold blast next week.
But the morning clouds have been gorgeous this week (as seen while I'm driving to work and not able to snap a photo) and occasionally a V of geese fly overhead.

Happy weekend to you all.

Aerial crossroads?

Or X marks the spot?

I went down to the crossroads 
tried to thumb me a ride
I went down to the crossroads
tried to thumb me a ride
but nobody seemed to know me
they just passed me by.

Two views

Another take on "the corporate view".
(No, this is not where I work) :)

Last hopper

Taken a couple of weeks ago right before it turned November cold.

Some hopper humor:

-Why would you swallow a grasshopper? So you could have internal locust of control.

-A grasshopper walks into a bar. The bar tender says to him, "Hey we have drink named after you." The grasshopper replies, "You have a drink named Murray?"

In honor and tribute on Veterans Day

My grandfather fought in World War I on the front lines and in the trenches. He was very proud of his service to our country.

In honor of all those who have served our country. In remembrance of all those who lost their lives.

Old timer

As discovered during a walk a few weeks ago. I'm guessing this is a Ford Model A; anyone out there who knows for sure?

Late morning.

Lovely fall day out, even if it's a bit warm for November. Tomorrow the weather is changing and we'll probably see the shimmer of rain on the red and golden leaves.

Have a blessed weekend.

Got mail?

As seen during a walk. How many of them can you name? :)

Red glory

As seen during a walk. I was taken with how brilliantly red the leaves were. Happy November to you :)
