It's Autumn...ya THINK?



Every year in October, Coupeville has a scarecrow contest and each business tries to participate, this year's theme was COWS I guess, because most of the ones were cow related. I only took this one which is Island Transit's entry, and the cutest by far.



Our one and only grocery store, Prairie Center had their display of Pumpkins out front and it just looked really fallish, so I took it.




My Sister's friend Nancy's Husband Al puts up a different theme every year also...this year it was a big black BAT!

When traffic is not so bad, I will try to get the rest of them for you. we only have one main street, and during the day it is too busy to get good pictures, because you have to stop in the middle of the road, and the tourists get really cranky!

The weather took a drastic turn too. It got COLD last night, almost freezing, but not quite. Donna lives on the mainland, and she has already had to scrape ice off her windsheild. Yep, one week of summer and now it is Fall. I expect Winter to be right around the corner. I saw my first wooley Bear, and he had a small brown stripe and big black ones, so that means COLD IS COMING...

Today it's 85 but tonight a front is supposed to come through with rain so I think they said the temps will drop about 10 degrees or so. Still Summer in these parts.

What is that bat made of?
Frost already, huh? Like Brenda said, 80's around here yesterday, but it did cool down today. Maybe it will remember it's fall soon!

We played in the sprinkler and pool today. Summer here still.

That looks like fun. I am trying to make myself enthusiastic about fall. It's not like I don't like it. It's just that winter follows so soon...

It's mild here but the thing that gets me is the evenings drawing in and when it's cloudy it doesn't get light until after 8.

I love that pumpkin display. Our temps are starting to go down and I think we might have our first frost this weekend. I love Fall and Winter!

Fall is okay but I don't like winter and it usually isn't very far behind fall. Some might say that we have had a day or two of winter already. Oh well, it is only six months or so until it will be getting nice again.

I'm glad to see that we are finally communicating even though it's only on your terms. Lighten up life is to short. Especially when your retarded.

If you are who I think you are, then you know that I vote the way I want to see it, I took 8 years of Bush beating from lots of people, and Obama pushed all the buttons I had on my list. I LOVE McCain, always have, but NOT Sarah Palin. If he had chosed colin Powell or Joe lieberman, then maybe I would be talking to him.

How is the book selling/ ;)
