Monday's critters and cartoons


Sweet and savory September is winding down and while we were on a [rather cold] motorcycle trip east toward Wisconsin yesterday I noticed that more and more trees are turning color. The hills are covered with a patterned carpet. We were at an event at a farm called Hope Glen which was an appreciation lunch for those who had attended or supported a bike washing ministry at the annual motorcycle week in Sturgis, South Dakota. This was one of the four dogs (note the blue eyes and sandy paws!) that were part of the farm and below a beautiful pinto pony for childrens' riding.

Visit Misty Dawn at her meme, Camera Critters No. 25 to see more wonderful creatures.
Call me redundant, but it seems the autumn theme appears everywhere.

My first car was a '51 Ford. At night, I parked it on an incline.
To get the pistons firing, I had to put it in second gear, depress the clutch, release the emergency brake, roll down the hill, and pop the clutch.
Bingo.
Maybe if I end each day on a mountaintop, I can roll out of bed in the
morning, release the brake of fear and confusion, and jolt that old engine into
joy.

Enjoy this Monday!

I do love autumn and am sorry to see September ebb away. I can certainly feel the chill in tonight's air......October is wasting no time in turning down the temperatures!
