Burrrrr.... ~ Scarecrows ~ Elks ~ Pasta Day

Good 28ยบ morning. Burrrrrrr.......... In the night I heard what I thought was an airplane .... but it kept up.... then I went back to sleep, not even figuring out it was going to be freezing out there and the vineyard up the road had kicked on their "frost fans"
  to keep the grapes from freezing.
Realized what it was when I let Maggie out this morning. It sounds like a helicopter is trying to land out front!

Yesterday was fog...
Today is clear....
...but you can see the ice on the barn roof, the grapevines, and the crossbar...

Guess this means Fall is here!

Yesterday was errand day.. ran into Nancy and PJ at the Post Office. We have made a date for wine on the porch on Thursday! To Safeway for specialty candy for Halloween and my green tea and some Dunkin' Donuts Cinnamon Spice coffee, my fav. Then to take Jen's Halloween earrings to her I forgot to give her on Sunday. Jean is still hard at work hanging wallpaper! Then to Ft. Vannoy School to take pictures of the "scarecrows" hanging on the school fence that the kids made.

I will follow up with these scarecrows later..... Then it was off to the Elks ... 
 to meet up with Bill and Jeannie and Joe and Joann for wine. We had a nice visit. Them home and dinner and a fire in the wood stove!
This applies to any number of people I know:

Historically this date....
1962Cuban missile crisis: Adlai Stevenson shows photos at the UN proving Soviet missiles are installed in Cuba.

2004Fidel Castro, Cuba's President, announces that transactions using the American Dollar will be banned

.... one of the worst things about Cuba being Adam Henry's is that the cigar smokers don't get to savor those awesome Cuban stogies!


We used to go to Rau's down on Beverly to get Jerry's cigars. Hand rolled with Cuban tobacco by Cuban ladies! And they had the wildest coffee they served us. It was only about a shot glass full, but it kept you pumped up the rest of the day! POTENT.
