The guest

I think I have writer's block. Nothing is coming to mind, so I'll show you photos of the guest that I mentioned. No, not Julie. A pigeon!

Well, the computer seems to have some kind of block, too. Pictures aren't uploading. So...I'll write about fall! Several of you have asked about the weather and scenery. The first is incredible! It's been "just right" for quite a while now. I think we're supposed to get down to freezing one night this weekend, but that will be the first time so far. It rains off and on, with bright sunshine in between. The rain is just enough to keep everything beautifully green, but not enough to make us feel trapped indoors. Other than the yellow ash trees like the one I showed you, there's not much fall foliage. We are collecting wonderful leaves, but they seem to change just a few at a time, so there aren't many brilliant trees.

Did I tell you that we went to another Zhatva celebration in a different village on Sunday? We have photos of that, too.

Hi! I remember when a pigeon flew in our upstairs window (Will's old room). Jared and Cindy Helms were living upstairs. Jared was a young child and came running downstairs, screaming, "There's an EAGLE in my room"!!! Somehow, that city boy did not know the difference and was SCARED TO DEATH!! We all got a big laugh out of that one! (including Jared, once we explained!!) Love y'all!! Julie

Oh, we had a pigeon once! Actually, we found him, injured, in the middle of the walking path at the park and brought him home with the intent of either nursing him back to health or giving him a nice, quiet, warm place to die. He chose the later and we enjoyed him while we could. We still wouldn't mind having a pet pigeon sometime! Enjoying the pictures of your cutie-pie kids!
