Boy am I behind... time was long ago I would make many blog entries every week. Now I make one once a month. I still get out in the world but not very often. Depending on the bus now days to get me around is fine but sometimes not in the budget. I managed to get a few photos on my last trip out. The fall is slowing coming to a close here. Trees turned slow and mostly yellow. I did manage to find some color here and there though.These were taken at a local apple orchard near town. Never have I seen a person deliver gallons of cider on the back of a 4 wheeler though. This place had a whole little house where you could go and pick what apples you want. Kids love it..temperature controlled most of the time. Fresh donuts being made were mouth watering. Nothing like them in the fall. Here are some recent photos
Delivering Cider       

I ventured into our downtown and found it celebrating a scarecrow contest. I began to see a theme start. I am not sure what the one above was supposed to be.
This was the spa.

Getting in the mood for the holiday here. Halloween was
always a favorite of mine in school. We would have
a whole school party in grade school and have cake
walks and fishing booths and a parade through the whole school.
I think they still do some of those things now too. As things got scary
out there in the real world, schools decided to have parties
like we did in the “olden” days and all the kids now either
have parties at school during hours or after and even
churches have parties here. The parties consist of cars in the
parking lot and each party has goodies in the trunk of their
car. YEP, almost like tailgating. Kids go to each car and pick up
their treats and when they are done maybe have a game or two
indoors or out depending on the weather.
Here in Michigan it is often cold, rainy, or snowing.This year it will be pretty chilly, some parts of the state may even have snow flurries..YES I said it!!

It amazes me at the talent and creativity that people have when carving a pumpkin for Halloween. This particular one just blew my mind. Such a neat design. The most creative I ever got was drilling holes in one and putting lights inside. This year I am still getting settled in my new place but have my fall decoration hung up in a place of honor in my apt. In our old home we had it on the front door of our house. It still looks pretty good despite being packed away for 4 years. I managed to buy some candy in case I get a trick or treaters here, I am not quite sure what our complex does for the holiday, but there are several families and quite a few children here. 
Did I keep some for me?? Uhh YES I did.. candy favorite, but those PEEPS ghosts and pumpkins are running a close second. However you celebrate, if you do, have a fun,safe holiday!

If you haven't seen this photo it is quite something.. I had to look twice as I thought it was a baby but it wasn't. It was a mom having one!  So creative and from what I see it must have been done in a hospital by some ingenius workers there. Cute!!
The next one, well what a waste of good decide.. it is different
for sure and must have taken a long time to do. This one is pretty elaborate in the carving but neat design. MEOW!!  Well whatever you do this halloween, I hope you have fun doing it.  Here there are parties and trick or treats by going to the local shops downtown and it all starts on Saturday and runs all the way until Monday. Three days of fun. Kids love it!  I am sure I will have some neat pictures to include here by Tuesday, weather permitting.
