SOMETHING STRANGE
IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

There's a delicious new addition
  in our town . . .
Strange Donuts!

It's no ordinary donut shop.
 They offer donuts that are, well . . .
STRANGE.

Flavors like:

Gooey Butter Coffeecake 
Maple Bacon 
Raspberry Shortcake
The Elvis (banana & peanut butter)
Chicken & Waffles

They're new to the 'hood, 
and already busy.

They open at 6:00am until
they sell out.
And re-open at 9:00pm
until Midnight.

Their motto:
"Be nice.  Stay strange."

(We will.)

6:16 A.M.

Early morning sky.
Kirkwood, Missouri.

(Painted in reds.)

Reminds me of this weather warning:

"Red sky at night,
sailor's delight;
red sky in morning,
sailors take warning."

And sure enough,
the clouds came rolling in
an hour or so later.
And took our sun away this day.

WHEN WITCHES PARTY

As Halloween approaches
(and it's getting close)
there's a group of "ladies" in the 'hood,
who gather together
for a Witches Party.

This coven assembles
to mix their potions,
agree on their hexes,
and celebrate the season.

And the neighbors understand.
Mostly.

So, watch out.

 EVERY MIGHTY OAK . . .


STARTS WITH ONE OF THESE


I picked up a handful of acorns
while walking in the woods,
and noticed some were already sprouting.

I think I'll plant an oak tree!

FINAL HARVEST

Summer's over,
cold weather is around the corner,
so it's time to get our veggie garden
ready for winter.

Maggie and I cleaned out the old plants,
added lots of compost, and
harvested lots of chard and kale,
beautiful red and orange carrots
and a surprising bounty of green beans.

So much food came from our tiny garden.
(Lots of health, too.)
