The sun has faded behind some clouds but look how pretty it is out there - this little pot of fun is set up out front near the driveway..........I love it! Do you see the goose neck squash? Interesting creature isn't it? I just love all the varieties of squash and gourds out these days! See all the leaves too? Mr.Teenager will be helping The Man's man rake these this fall - there are lots of leaves around!
This is the maple tree in my front yard:
And these are across the street:
All just at peak colors - beautiful!
Now on to more exciting stuff! My new furniture:
And finally - I wanted to show you my "blackboard" - because my friend The Zadge always writes these poetic sayings on her blackboard - and mine - well - it's kind of embarassing - go ahead see for yourself:
As you can see, mine is a catch all for various calendars, invites, pictures etc - it's a magnetic board as well and it serves us well - I wrote my first message in a long time because I ran out of chaulk - the kids came in from school and asked what the funny farm was! I said "well children - it's a place where parents go to rest"!
My Dad always used to say Dropkick Murphy's was the Funny Farm! It was a detox center - Jackie Gleason used to go to it when he needed to dry out. It was in the next town over from us in Acton, MA. My Dad said he always knew when Jackie was there because he'd call a local restaurant that my Dad worked in at night and order 2 Antipasto's to be delivered! Just a little trivia for you all! It's where the band "The Dropkick Murphy's" took their name from - really!
Back to the Funny Farm - enjoy your day! Or what's left of it!
