I've had him for years, he has a bulb inside that lights up,... I fell in love with that face and my grandchildren all ask when "Casper" is going to come up from the cellar.
Happy Halloween, Casper!

If you aren't familiar with 4-H, here is the website,... http://www.4-h.org/ and the wikipedia page,... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4-H . My grandchildren are third generation 4-H club members. A great-grandmother, a great-grandfather and a grandmother were 4-H club leaders. I guess 4-H is a family thing!

Sunday morning dawned bright and clear,...
The maple leaves have fallen, but the sumacs still hold on,....
Tiny threads of frost cover the deck railing like a fuzzy white blanket,...
And frost beads decorate the chairs,...
The camper is at dealer's for winterization and service, my grandson has mowed my lawn for the last time, and he's helped me get some camping equipment stowed away in the cellar for the winter. It's nearly time to turn the page to winter,...

Freighters going by just off the shore of our site,....Canada Geese stopping to rest on their way south,...
A full moon rising,...
Sunset over the St.Lawrence River,...
A great campfire to end the season!

Some people here in the Adirondacks find anything that mars a ridgeline or view to be offensive. This sight, rather than offending my eyes, fills my heart with hope. I do not know about the quantity of production , the mechanics, or the merchandising of the power generated. But I do believe we need to explore more of this! I wish i could put one here on my hill!

Above is Dusty Miller, and below is a mix of several things in their last glory before heavy frost gets them.
This tree near the walkway to the restaurant is either Mountain Ash or Pin Cherry. I can't identify in this picture as there isn't a good shot of the leaves and how they grow on the stem. Any readers want to give a definitive answer here?
I posted these pictures "just because" I like them! I especially like the red berries.

Then he told me it was not photography! He lays his flowers and woodland items on the scanner and works in a completely darkened room. The results is amazing. As I am paying for home heating oil now I only bought a $2 bookmark. His larger prints are very reasonably priced and I will purchase one in the future. For a visual treat check out "Earthy Originals" at
http://www.earthyoriginals.com/ . I think you will like this artist's work.

I'm not sure of the mechanics of the steam engine, but you can see the steam coming out of the pipe.
The apples were pressed and the cider ran through the screening and into the pan. From there it was offered to the crowd for tasting. Mmmmmm.....good!

But this narrow bed does not look very comfortable!
