Waiting for late work ... again. It seems like it happens when there are things I need to do at home! Doggone it! (imagine stronger language than that)

Good evening,

Why was it 80+*F on October 1? I spent most of my day outside doing my yardwork and now I have got an absolutely splitting headache from being in the warm sun. One of our 2 large maple trees in the front yard is almost barren of all leaves so I was able to clean those up so only one more tree to clean up as they fall off that one. I think the maple that all the leaves have fallen off of is slowly dying so it changes color and drops its leaves earlier than all the others.
I did run out earlier to Goodwill, found nada! Then I made a trip to Lowe's and they have almost all of their Christmas out.
Made, you would have loved it, they have an 18 inch Jim Shore Santa statue for about $49.

I would have taken pictures but I was being a wuss and chickened out on taking pictures for the Blossoms. Darn anxiety issues!

I hope you all had a great day so far, I will be popping in throughout the evening.

Day 2 before the Season (Nov. 11) = Ballcoach
Day 1 before the Season (Nov. 12) = - open -
CHRISTMAS SEASON 2013 BEGINS Nov. 13. (I usually post some parting thoughts.)

NOW. Question.
With so much interest and with so much expansion of the thread in recent years, should we add a Day 6 (Nov 7) or a Day 7 (Nov 6)??
This is my 4th season being here, I think I am ready to step up to the big leagues and take Day 1.

Hope your headache goes away soon, friend.

That Jim Shore Santa is awesome, indeed!!
