Monday Musings - November 5, 2017


1. November has arrived, but fortunately the weather has been wet it has been warm. Our first hard freeze is expected Saturday morning.

2. It was interesting to see the transition of autumn leaf colors during our trip to New York. In Maryland, the leaves are just past peak while in places north the leaves are gone form the trees. Orange and yellow are the predominate colors.

3. Winners and Losers: Winners: Cowboys, Redskins. Losers: Ravens, Penguins. DNP: Steelers.

4. I have noticed that some drivers are becoming more aggressive on the roadways. They are driving at unreasonable speeds and making dangerous maneuvers.

5. Traffic is more frustrating when tie-ups happen during a long trip.

6. Winter is coming. The deer are getting pretty bold. This one let me within 10 feet of her while she was eating.

7. It must be late-autumn, I have not played golf on two successive weekends.

8. With the return to Standard Time, the dark season has arrived! Ugh! I'm not sure what happened to the extra hour.

Ronald Reagan Quote of the Week


"Democracy cannot be imposed from outside and it frequently evolves only after patient, incremental steps. It must be the product of free institutions -- churches, labor unions, independent judiciary, and the press -- and its life-giving, rejuvenating process is a citizen placing his vote in a ballot box -- the subject of this Conference."
