Here is part two of our fall decorations.
“Autumn breathes in golden sunshine and breathes out a frosty chill.”
Time for my annual post of the fall decorations I have put out. I have so much that I will post the rest on my next post!
“If you stand still outside you can hear it... Winter's footsteps, the sound of falling leaves.”

We drove past this LOVE sign today, big and bold in the sun. A nice surprise.
“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”
Did you know there is a Bobblehead Museum & Hall Of Fame? And they are now selling bobbleheads of Dr. Anthony Fauci, in two different poses. They are unable to keep them in stock because they sell out so fast!
There is also a bobblehead of Dr. Birx. Although it is not as popular.
And also Megan & Harry, the royal couple.
Chinese nodding-head figures are documented in England and Continental Europe as early as the 1760's and 1770's.
This is the house about two houses down from us.
Q. What is the difference between a rock guitarist, and a jazz guitarist?
A. One plays three chords in front of thousands of people, the other plays thousands of chords in front of three people.
We drove past The Big Cat's house, and he is now all dressed up for fall. He has brought along some fall things with him, and he is rocking fall in a safe way!
“In order to keep a true perspective of one's importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him.”
Last night we went back up on the hill, but no hawk. My blog friend Anni, who is an excellent birder, identified it as a Cooper's Hawk. And I agree. Maybe no hawk, but there was a beautiful crescent moon.
“…the crescent moon hung white in the sky and the stars burned in the darkness above them.”
This evening we drove up to the hill again to watch the chimney swifts and the sunset. And what a surprise awaited me! A big hawk sat atop the chimney where the swifts go to sleep. He watched them all circle round and round, clearly hoping for a good dinner. Can you see him way up there?
“Only in silence the word, only in dark the light, only in dying life: bright the hawk's flight on the empty sky.”

It is just past midnight, and we still have power! Plus at least 7"of snow and some ice. Tomorrow is to be 60 M.P.H. winds, so we are ...
