Other than that it was a pretty good evening, saw lots of cool Halloween stuff last night,
I hope Harper gets feeling better!

I'm jealous that you saw Halloween stuff! Where at?

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I have to leave work early today and tomorrow to take Elizabeth to ballet practice and play practice. I'm using a couple hours of vacation time each day, but it's ok. I've maxed out on accrued vacation time, so I'm actually not earning anymore until I use some of what I have banked. I plan to burn a week in early August with a trip to my beloved Smoky Mountains, too!

It looks like rain again. We could use a couple dry days, but I hate to complain about the rain. We went so long a couple years ago without any, it's hard to complain now.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Have you been to Turner Falls in Davis, Oklahoma? I have been going there for nearly 30 years. Wayne and I spent our honeymoon in a cabin there. They use to decorate the park during Christmas, play Christmas music throughout the park and we use to get a cabin overlooking it all. They quit doing that many years ago and I sure miss it!!! It's only about 2 and half hours from us.
Hello CAH. Yes, we've been to Turner Falls. It's a lot of fun. Not sure the last time you've been, but we went last summer and the park hadn't been kept up as good as it had been in years past. It was still fun, though. The Falls Creek Baptist Camp is right around there too. It's always so hot there in the summer!

Of the two areas, Turner Falls and the Wichitas, I prefer the Wichita Mountains. They're strange because they just sort of pop up out of nowhere on the prairie. It is also a buffalo preserve, so herds just roam free around there. They don't mess with you though, but occasionally one will lay down in the road, which makes passing them in a car hard!

On a side note, Geronimo is buried out there at the old Fort Sill. It's an active military base, but they'll let you on to see his grave, his old jail cell, and the historic frontier army post. Let me know if y'all ever make it up there!

Costco is usually one of the earliest to get stuff out. I know from reading a Halloween forum quite a few people have seen it at cocsoc in different states.
