Autumn...

... today's Quote comes from a "laid back low maintenance kinda gal"....

"Soon the Virginia creeper will take on a crimson hue. The elms show signs of gold here and there. Goldenrod is everywhere. Dogwoods are hinting at burgandy. Hummingbirds search for feeders that were taken in and cleaned weeks ago. Crows make racket over the bounty that is theirs.

The trek back up the hill (always harder) took us over the ditch and through the remains of a corn field strewn with free squirrel food to stuff into our pockets. More cotton. Some wild roadside asparagus that has survived the ages since it was a cash crop. We sat in the swing on the front porch listening to the leaves rustle on the redbud tree behind us. It was then that I realized that the story of this place must be recorded by someone before it's too late. And that someone must be me."

... beautifully written from Dyersburg, Tennessee...

Bullshit So Far

Whoa. At first I read, "Soon the vagina creeper will take on a crimson hue..."

And I re-read. Not sure where my mind has been lately...
