11-30-10 The Crossover Season

Fall is the crossover season. It's the only season that allows trees to have more than one color of leaf. It's the season where we get used to wearing short-sleeves, then Mother Nature reminds us that She is "in charge." Fall is the colorful season. What other time of year can we see yellow, red, gold, tan, and all shades in between?

11-29-10 Falls Brilliant Colors

The one red leaf, the last of its clan,
That dances as often as dance it can,
Hanging so light, and hanging so high,
On the topmost twig that looks up a the sky.
---Samuel Taylor Coleridge

11-21-10 Choppin' Wood

Last summer, our neighbor chopped two of he trees down and gave us the wood. However, some of the logs needed splitting. So when Tim get's the urge, he goes out and splits wood. Today was one of those days.

11-14-10 The Daily Shoot Turns 1!

The "Daily Shoot" turns 1 year old today! It has been a source of inspiration for me as I work on my photography skills. In honor of it's birthday, it suggested to make a photo with a calendar theme.

11-12-10 Veteran's Day Tribute

(Meant to post this yesterday.) In the town I work in, they have a Veteran's Memorial. Last Saturday, they had a parade that ended at the memorial. Lots of people showed up, including members of the Patriot Guard. I was conducting a training across the street, when they fired the cannon off. Both days, Saturday and Thursday, actual Veteran's Day, made me say "Thanks" to
to those that have helped and are helping to keep this country free.

11-10-10 Coloful!!

I know I keep going on about this year's autumn colors, but they are so brilliant. Soon the colorful leaves will fall, and the harsh reality of winter will be upon us. So I'm going to enjoy the splendid color while I can.

10-8-10 Kansas in the Fall

Keilo and I went back to our favorite park, Swanson, to see what fall colors we could find. On our way back, I saw this tree with the flag flying. Although today was windy, it was a good day to be outside.

11-1-10 Waiting for Goblins

(Keilo's thoughts...) "Where are they? I know they're out there. They come to the door, Mom gives them something, then they leave. Why don't they come in?"
