A lot of our trees aren't really turning yet, but this one I pass on my walks with Susie.

Love the blue frog!

While at the medieval festival, we watched a demonstration of how chain mail is made. The patterns were fascinating. Here's one designed to prevent flesh wounds.

Lovely MG Patterns fascinate me. We might have another patterns theme next month.

At the medieval festival there were lots of booths selling just about everything imagineable. Many of them were beautifully decorated. This one sold medieval headpieces, amongst other things, and I was lucky enough to find one made out of the exact same material as my dress! Dress and headpiece were black velvet with silver trimmings. Perfect match! Couldn't believe my luck!

Wellington Arch after I walked through it but before the Olympic triathletes rode through it on their bicycles. May be 2 years before but still before....

Played a round of golf today and on the last hole saw this mother duck and her ducklings. I didn't want to get too close, she was quite protective of them!

To continue with the "Exploring Space" theme that ClaraSue ended September with, this is a full-size replica of a Mercury-Redstone rocket at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord, New Hampshire. It was on one of these rockets that Alan Shepard (New Hampshire native), became the first American in space, on May 5, 1961.

Tortoise at local wildlife park, they think he is around 100, but as he's lost his birth certificate they're not sure.

*gasp* MG is visiting? That's wonderful - hope you both have a great time!


Here's a couple swans in the swamp. It's completely covered by that red weed now but the swans and the ducks don't seem to mind.

It's a year today since we lost my beloved Star to cancer at the age of 6. Although we now have Susie, who is a joy, and I would be devastated if anything happened to her, there hasn't been a day when some memory of Star hasn't come to me. This was taken when she was 2. She was a complete sweetheart in every way.

My heart goes out to you Christina. You never get over the loss of a lovely animal. That's a great picture showing her sense of fun for sure.

Love the photo Copago.
Hope you two have a great time, Ren and MG!
My sympathies, Christinap. I know from experience how hard it is to get over those sorts of things.

Thank you both. You're right Ren, you don't, they all end up with their own special place in your heart, and you love the next one you have whilst simultaneously missing the ones that went before. I once read a quote from Lord Oaksey, it went along the lines of "the worst thing about being human was the number of horses and dogs you outlived".

Awww, what a cute photo of Star. My sympathy to you, Christinap. I know how hard it is.

Such great photos by everyone! Santana, I especially like your lazy days of summer! I haven't been able to get out and about for a few days to get any new photos, so I'm still going back through some older stuff. This one, as my last few have been, is still in Kentucky.
