Mo Rain ~ Dodgers ~ WWI Memorial ~ Mini Chicken Pot Pies ~ Pumpkin Cheesecake Day

Good 42º drizzling morning. Drizzled on and off yesterday and more rain last night. Got another 1/2".

Yesterday....  looks the same today!

It's really Fall!!!

.... and the deer were out munching in the rain.. 

Wow, the Dodgers did it! Going to the World Series for the first time in 29 years! The series game with Oakland was 29 years ago and one of the games my sister and I went to when Kirk Gibson hit the winning home run at Dodger Stadium!

OMGOSH. Looking forward to watching this series! That had to make 90 year old Tommy Lasorda happy and also 89 year old Vin Scully happy! 

Ok, this has pissed me off.... a dumbass Federal Court has ruled the WWI Memorial must be torn down!!! WHAT ?????
The American Legion erected a memorial in 1925 in Maryland to honor the 49 men who died in WWI.
Who in the hell are these dummies on the Federal Court???????????
