Heebie Jeebies

A neighbor came over to visit last week and this is what greeted her on our front porch.......

Mr. hairy, long legs, bigger than *@&#, creepy, crawley
He was about as big as your hand stretched out!

I have to say that our neighbor is an elementary school teacher and she was sooo excited!
  Yes, excited!
  I was blubbering and whimpering...but she insisted on catching it.  She could hardly wait to take it to school and show her students.
We were more than happy to get rid of it, but we did have to catch it first.
The first couple of containers were too small...then I found one big enough and with some manuevering and quickness, Mr. Barlow and neighbor caught it.
The picture above was taken through plastic wrap.
I don't know anything about taranulas.  I really don't care.  I'm just glad it's gone from my space.
This must be my personal welcome to Halloween.

"Fall"ing in Love

I Love Fall!

I love this tree.
It is just below my house on 2nd East.
It is beautiful.

This is the front north west corner of my house.
The burning bushes are spectacular!
See this one below...

Did I tell you?!
I love the warm days and cool crisp nights.
I love not having my A/C or furnace on.
I love being able to open my windows and let fresh air in.
I love to look at pumpkins.
We went to the Syracuse Pumpkin Walk last night with Kathy's family and had so much fun.

Rick, Tony, Connor, Cody and Lauren

I know these beautiful days will have to come to an end, but boy am I enjoying them now!

Saying Goodbye Again

My sister Sharry passed away last Sunday night. 
She courageously battled ovarian cancer for almost 4 years. 
She lost. 
Comfort comes because she is now free of her horrible pain and suffering. 
She is dancing and singing and leading music and probably looking around for Beethoven.
 She is reunited with Dad, Mom, grand-daughter Elizabeth and her sister Deanna. 
She will be missed.
