Well, the rain held off long enough today that we could get the Halloween decorations out. So there's one thing mostly done. Tomorrow I need to build a few things to put the rest out.
We also went to the Huntsburg Pumpkin Festival to have cabbage rolls. There's a food booth that makes some good ones. The local vendors were out, but not necessarily in force. Many of the vendors this year had the feel of "the economy is bad, here's a 'work at home' plan for you."
It's a nice little festival, full of local organizations. We did the usual stuff. Including purchasing a nice pumpkin (which, btw, just like peanuts are in short supply this year). It's now out there in with the cemetery and Grim Reaper inflatable, below the flying ghosts and glowing skulls.
The world grows colder as the veil grows thin. Leaves that miss the Earth fall to her loving embrace. Clouds skittle across the sky dreaming of white flakes.
A few weeks ago the buzzards left Hinkley. Seeing twenty or so turkey vultures in a single gyre is a thing to behold. One or two hawks will over winter, like the geese. Toads and snakes have gone to ground. The hemisphere beds down for its bear sleep.
