10-11-14 Journal Entry-Miscellaneous Useless Information!   Leave a comment

It’s another cold and gray October day here in Maine.  It was a frigid night and this morning everything was covered with a heavy frost.  Since my better-half refuses to turn on the heat until later in the month I found it necessary last night to jack up my electric blanket to level six.  It keeps the bed nice and toasty but I also seem to wake up every few hours when I feel my face beginning to freeze.  I knew it was really cold in the house when the cat crawled into bed with me at 4 am and refused to leave.  Now that I’m fully awake and have had my first cup of coffee it’s time to mention a variety of items which could possibly bore you to tears.

Yesterday we attended the second birthday party for the better-half’s grandson.  It was a festive occasion for the family and friends who attended and we were surrounded by a gaggle of children who really were enjoying themselves. There were games for the kids, gift bags, and a pumpkin decorating session that was hilarious.  It was a great day for all of the kids and even for some of the adults.  I took over a hundred pictures that will need to be reviewed later today and that should keep me busy for a while.  I’ll only post this one which shows the aftermath.  The bigger the mess the better the party, right?

After saying our goodbyes to the birthday boy we left the party and decided to take a short drive through the woods to find some decent fall foliage photos. The entire morning had been cloudy and gray but as we pulled out of the driveway the sun came shining through the clouds.  I’ll always wonder whether it would have gotten cloudy and gray once again if we’d have returned to the party.  I hate coincidents like that.  Here are a few of the photo’s from our ride.

This is a rare picture of the seldom seen “Red Breasted Maine Moron”. That’s anyone who water skis in Maine in October.

Now that Fall has officially arrived most of our outdoor activities will be curtailed through the Winter months. I’ve been posting journal entries for some months now documenting our Summer activities and it’s been a lot of fun.  Since I’m not a person who enjoys frolicking in the snow my future journal entries may be limited. No snowmobiling, no ice skating, no skiing, no bobsledding, no hunting, and no ice fishing pictures.  I think it’s time to return this blog to discussions of politics and politicians, trivia of all kinds, and the continuing criticisms of all things Hollywood.  The celebrities have gotten a Summer pass from me and I feel the need to lash out at them once again.

I’m also in the process of setting up a Twitter page for this blog and will begin publicizing my postings there as well. I may even consider returning to Facebook sometime soon. I feel completely reenergized after a great Summer and I’m ready for the mid-year elections and all that that entails.
