Great to see you here!

I was telling my husband last night that I wish October were eight weeks long, and perfect fall weather the whole time. We've been summertime hot in TN, but they are *promising* us that fall will arrive in earnest this weekend and stay.

Prepare for death & follow me.

It's starting to look like October around here.

Here is the view from my Cemetery with just a blush of autumn starting to show down in the valley.

20 days out from Halloween and the first cool front of the season finally came in. Got the pumpkin candles lit and the pumpkin beer out and the windows open. Now this is fall!

Thanks.

In about 2 weeks it should be just drop dead gorgeous up here.

Pun intended.

this weekend was the first truly fall-like weekend around here in STL, we spent a completely perfect afternoon with the boys at one of the local pumpkin patch fall festivals - it was overcast and about 55 degrees, with a chilly breeze blowing around while the boys played in the hay maze forts and "corn boxes" and picked out big ugly gourds & pumpkins :) I'm not sure who was more in heaven, the kids are us, haha.

I just bought 3 pumpkins at Kroger. Haven't been to a patch in a long time, alas.

It was an exceptionally rainy summer and September on the east coast, and I think it affected the pumpkin crop. It seems like there is a lot more rot in the bins. Still some nice ones to be had around here.

It's nice to see familiar faces; thanks for the welcomes. Ciuin and the kids are doing well, thanks, Witchy. The oldest (11) is trick or treating as a killer squirrel, and the little one (4) has her heart set on being Michelangelo. Bizarre how things like TMNT and Mario are still popular all these years later.

Andy, that farm looks straight out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Or is that the California Hedge Trimmer Butcheries I'm thinking of.....?

I hope everyone is thoroughly enjoying their Halloweenmonth. Has anybody seen the new Halloween movie yet? What did you think of it? We're hoping to catch it sometime next week.
