Good morning everyone!

It's Friday the 13th! Do you know what that means?! No, it's not some silly misnomer courtesy of a horror film.. It means that we are now officially two months away from the beginning of the Christmas Season! Yes, in two months from today - November 13th - we will all be gathered in this thread celebrating the beginning of our favourite time of year. A time when the entire world welcomes Christmas! Until then, let's keep enjoying these wonderful days ahead of us. Fall has plenty to provide!

I might be around a little today, but I will be heading to Rochester, NY later this afternoon for a tournament. It's my first time going in a couple years, so I am pretty excited. Rochester isn't a particularly nice town, but at it's an easy 4 hour drive. As mentioned, I will be able to wake up a little earlier than first expected to update everyone with the count. I won't be responsible for debuting any milestones, but we'll be oh so close to one!

I should probably get ready. I have a few errands to run this morning. Have a great Friday, everyone! I hope that it moves quickly. You all deserve a weekend!

Yesterday, she killed one at her neighbor's house...with a shotgun! Mom's getting pretty handy with a gun HAHA! Hopefully, we'll start getting some cooler weather soon, and the snakes will hole-up for the winter.

I cut grass till dark yesterday afternoon, but it paid off. I wouldn't have been surprised if the neighbors had stopped by to thank me for cleaning up my yard. LOL

Tonight we're all going back to Statesboro (about 30 miles from here) where the nearest movie theater is located. Jacob's buddies have all decided they are big and bad enough to watch a scary movie at the theater, so they all dared each other to go watch Insidious 2. I guess I'll wake up in the morning to find a 6 foot tall 16 year-old in my bed.

We're going to try out the new "gourmet pizza" place while he's at the movie.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Your mom sounds like an awesome lady, God bless her!

Whoa ... I only ever saw the sky that dark in the daytime once before. It was before a torrential thunderstorm in Florida.

I had a Louanne moment on the way to work this morning. For a few miles I was behind a Polar Beverages delivery truck, with a big, beautiful polar bear looking straight at me from the back panel.

I stayed up a little too late last night after a tiring day yesterday, so I'm not at full strength just now. Hoping the day doesn't demand too much! It's been a busy week at the office, and I have a few errands to run this evening. I would like it to be a lazy weekend (and I would like it to get here quickly), but you never know until it happens!

Good morning!
We are going to have sun and clouds today with temperatures in the upper 70's. I am finishing up a cup of coffee and then I need to get dinner started in the crock pot. We are having beef stew tonight. I have a couple of errands and chores to do this morning. I also need to write a menu and grocery list and hopefully get to the butcher. And I'm going to squeeze in a visit to my parents house. I hope everyone has a happy Friday!

Shotguns are great for killing snakes. I bought my wife a 410 when we moved back here. I've killed several copperheads but no rattlesnakes in the last few years. The old folks around here tell me copperheads are loners but rattlesnakes live in groups. Be careful out there.

Happy TGIF day. We hope to make it to the mountain fair tomorrow. We are expecting great weather here this weekend. Tomorrow's forecast is sunny with a high of 69 with a low in the upper 40s. We will be sleeping with the windows open. I am can't wait for the first frost. It is great to wake up to a frost covered ground. As always, I hope we have a very cold winter with lots of snow.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

My youngest is not well, he has a cold and a bit of an upset stomach. He is in good spirits though and trooping along.

Hope he feels better soon!!!
