Monday Musings - October 24, 2011

1. The pool has been closed a month already. Six more long, cold, dark months until we open it for the 2012 season.

2. Kids seem to transition very quickly from well to sick.

3. It is a good time to celebrate democracy with the demise of Qaddafi. The newly freed prople of Libya have a lot to celebrate and must be careful to avoid the forces of chaos and darkness.

4. Autumn trees are in full color and too soon will be bare waiting for the dark days.

5. Cats and dogs. They keep our house from being devoid of life when we come home.

6. Sunday: church, football, family and yesterday a stroll through a corn maze. We didn't even have to call 911 for help getting out.

7. "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our chidren." Native American proverb. I read over the weekend that global warming is rising almost out of control and the temperature in some places may increase by 2 degrees during a lifetime.

8. It is amazing how quickly the leaves have departed the limbs of the trees--almost as if they have an important event to attend.

9. Garbage. Have you ever considered garbage and how we never consider it until we have to clean it up our of our own yard?
