Season's Greetings!
October 21, 2008

[BUMP from 10/13/07, which was bumped from 10/5/04] It's the prettiest time of year around Michigan. Our boy just had his birthday. During 'his' week the sassafras trees in the front yard light up like, well, birthday candles---roman candles, more like. Every year. They were lit up when he came home from the hospital. Light 'em! So here's our front yard---several pics showing the splendor. No half-measures for fall around here! OH YEAH!

In other news... these days I'm splitting firewood---getting my full 7 times warmed there. And Henry is learning the game now, too---stack it bark up.

I put the cover on the pool---I took my last swim of the year a few days ago.

It's finally getting cold. A friend and I are going to play one last session of tennis in our coats before they take down the nets.

But we haven't had a frost yet! ...And the raspberries were producing a quart a day up til last week. It was a full month of berry action!
