Y’all may remember that actually happened… me falling DURING autumn. Like, for example, last Sunday I did it twice I loved it so dagnabbed much… the falling thing. My ankle and knee still hate it… and so do the 8 bajillion bruises I have on pretty much every square inch of my right hand side… all in the name of Fall!
Sadly, I haven’t had much opportunity to get out around the valley and take in some Falley-type things… like changing leave colors and PUMPKINS and rotted out wild animal carcasses and PUMPKINS and the smell of the neighbor’s chimney fire when it’s still 85 degrees during the day and did I mention gourds!? Oh yes… PUMPKINS!
I did get up early on a Saturday 3 Saturdays ago to drive up through Sardine Canyon. The picture taking wasn’t ideal since that was the week when the smoke was hanging out like it owned the place… and everywhere I found I could stop without getting flattened by a semi was littered with telephone poles and ugly wirey things. SERIOUSLY… GET OFF MY PICTURE, TECHNOLOGY!
The smoke haze gives it a muted effect… kind of like shoving a towel into a Tuba. Not that I’ve ever done that Sky View Marching Band… just hypothetically.
That puff of smoke/cloud formation looked like a geyser… it also made me thirsty… for booze! Stop it! 😛
Can I move in with your people?
The leaves have all probably fallen off by now.
More muted, stuffed-towel tuba effect!
I need to get out somewhere else and do some leave exploring… before the ghost of winter present blankets my soul into oblivion! Too dramatic?
Question of the Day: What do you most look forward to about Fall/Autumn?
