Monday Musings - October 1, 2012

1. A storm swept through last evening with strong winds to churn the still green trees and which dropped the temperature about 15 degrees accompanied by some cold rains--the first cold rain of the coming season. I wonder if it was September saying good-bye?

2. Don't look now, but the team some pundits projected to lose 120 games, just made the MLB playoffs for the first time since 1997. Go O's.

3. I have to admit, for the first time in a long whole, I don't have a good idea of what happened around the world over the weekend--I have been kinda focused on a particular stadium in Baltimore.

4. I used my new smoker to smoke a chicken and some ribs yesterday--although I have some more tweaking to do, they came out all right. Practice makes perfect, so I expect there will be more smoking in my future.

5. Here's an interesting thought--on this day in 1908 the Ford Motor Company unveiled the Model T. I remember what Henry Ford reportedly said about customers--"If I had asked my customers what they wanted they would have said a faster horse."  Truth is, he probably never said that, but that is a discussion for another time.

6. A kick ball, three boys, and bases equal about an hour of fun.

7. What is the best time of the day? Morning of course, because at dawn the day is still full of hope and promise.
