Red leaves...

Autumn hesitates
to drop her blushing garment,
before Winter's cloak.

"They" said...

maybe a flake or two.
No more than a trace.
But, there are at least two inches on the porch right now. *sigh* 

I know, I know. It's too soon to whine.
I'm doing it anyway.

Let's talk about something else...

Like a good book...

I walked into a book store
this past August and saw
this book on a table all by
itself. One copy. No other 
books around it.
Something drew me to it
and I thought it might be
a great birthday present
for my friend, Jan,
in Florida. She's been a
lover of horses all her life. 

I bought it and mailed it
to Jan before her birthday.
She is thrilled with the
book, partly because, 
as it turns out, one of her
uncles was part of this mission. How cool is that?
I'd never heard of this story or the book. But, something called
me to it that day and I'm so glad it did. I bought a copy for
myself after I learned how much it meant to Jan. 

We also talked about a Disney movie made in 1963 that
we both saw and loved: Miracle of the White Stallions

It tells the same story as
the book 'A Perfect Horse'.

I was 12 when the movie
came out. I remember that
Dad loved the Lipizzans
and Mom loved Robert Taylor.
I might just buy the movie, too.

Ya know, I would've been a
much better student in history
class if things like this had been
talked about instead of just
long lists of names and dates.

Hey, Joe...

Congratulations, your Cubbies did it!
Geez. 10 innings, rain delay. 8 - 7. Helluva game.
If Cleveland had to lose, I'm glad it was to the Cubs. 

Now back to our regular programming...
