Yes indeed...I am still ALIVE.. I just lost my password to this blog and took a little time off to find it again. Like everything else ...LIFE kept on moving day to day and all of the sudden TWO MONTHS went by .. SCANDALOUS!!! NO way.. I kept saying to myself.. NO WAY... but YES it did.

So what's been going on?? Ohh not to day grind doing what chores need to be done to get ready for winter. I finally got my air conditioner cover. Was a real job finding a real small one. Warm weather is still here so I will put off covering my  unit for awhile. Been watching critters around the property lately. Squirrels are gathering nuts off the walnut tree like crazy. Bad winter I guess, we will see.

Sad news that a neighbor of mine fell  twice in her apt. She is 86 and not too well.
Paramedics took her to the hospital and now she is in a rehab place. She has lived in this building for 25 years or more. Uncertain if she will return.

Good news that my niece is going to have her second child in the spring. We are all so surprised and excited. A part time job..two children under 6, 3 cats and a big german shepherd..I think my niece will need a vacation after the baby comes, I know I sure would.                
Well I sure will try to keep this blog updated, until then
                                                     TO YOU ALL

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.

HAD to update here on the progress for our old house. MY my..seems the neighbors that lived around there were pretty sore about looking at it.

  The new owner had really let the place be trashy and unkempt and it needed help badly.They started painting it and the color was well .. not great...It proved to be a real pain to finish the job. When the spring and summer arrived things changed. They picked up the yard and removed the trash and PAINTED THE HOUSE.They hired someone to paint it.. It was a big deal because this old house NEVER had a COLOR before. It's probably 140 years old now and was ALWAYS white. Now it is fresh and clean and looks like this..
There is still plenty to finish up but this latest photo is so very nice to see. I am very happy for the old place to look good again. I love the color and it is such an improvement. AS FOR HELL HOUSE next door.. it is still standing and up for public auction and everyone is wondering if they will get any buyers for it. As a refresher.. Hell House was a home that had three or four apartments and left for the critters to inhabit. It had seen drug dealers and numerous arrests and fights and police visits in its past. The whole neighborhood would rather it be razed to the ground than bought and fixed up. It was gutted after the last tenant left the water connected in the winter and the whole place flooded and then black mold grew inside. It is nasty. Just glad our OLD HOUSE...looks good again.. Mom and Dad surely would approve!
