Yet another day passes and my todo list just gets longer. Oh well.
I did get a chance to spend time in a park with the warm fall sun this afternoon. The publisher and the editor of the local daily newspaper wanted to meet and talk, so I suggested we meet in the park. We all thought the park was a great idea. Killed an hour talking to them and then had to head back to real work.
Molly, our dog, and I got in our nightly 5 mile walk again tonight. We try to do 5 miles in the morning or at night. Gets a bit harder when the snow and ice of winter arrive. Someday I'll have to tell about how Molly came to live with us and how she spent a month in the penitentiary being trained by a multiple murderer, but for now it's enough to add her smiling face. Not one of her better pictures, but you get the idea. At least it's not her mug shot!
I'm still waiting for the first freeze here. The historical average here is for the first hard freeze to occur on or before October 10th. I suspect it may be later this year. Of course, this is Colorado, where the weather is unpredictable. One year it went from 73 degrees in the morning to 20 below and 2 feet of snow by midnight. I hated that year since it killed most of my apple trees.
BTW, for those who expressed concern for my lawnmower in my first post, there is good news I forgot to relay. Three parts costing a total of $6.25 and an hour of my time and the lawnmower is as good as new. All I have to do now is change the oil and drain the gas when the mowing season finally ends and it'll be set for the winter.
