A Chill In the Air

It's autumn and it's getting cold here in New England. I don't like the cold. While 'A' and I were out for a brisk walk the other day, I made this comment.

"Maybe this winter we ought to find ways to enjoy the cold and snow."

Quite straight-faced she replied, "I don't think that will happen."

Okay, so maybe it wasn't such a stellar idea after all.

I haven't much news. Once again I am swamped with work. I realize that I am very fortunate to be able to say that during these economic times. I'm also debating calling about another local craft fair. I think I will. It's not too expensive and I do need to get out there with the stuff again.

Last weekend brought not only the USS Hall to Rockport, there were many festivities for the second annual Harvest Festival. Rockport shops dressed up and held a scarecrow contest. Interpersed throughout this post are some of the creations.Some were quite clever
Here's 'A' checking out one.Some were more ghoulish than others.Some were geared towards either our seacoast location or maybe our sailor visitors.And one was in keeping with our artsy side.Which is your fave? Bikini gal, hippie, farmer, fancy lady, scared-dead, sailor, or artiste?

(note: I haven't a clue what all this will look like when published. I'm trying a different layout mode for the pics, and well, who knows what will happen!)

I think my fav is the one in the jeans and anorak alongside the lady in the red dress!
The new format is very arty, Deb! You just don't know where to look for the text on each line! Very arty.
You can tell Mandy that you know when you're getting old - when you don't like the snow! lol.

She'd absolutely kill me if she knew I'd put her pic here!

I don't like what happened with the text vs. pics. Won't do it again.
