My Grandparents (on my Dad's side) were farmers and they raised chickens and sold eggs as their main income. The guinea hens didn't like my Aunt and would chase her around. I see wild turkeys once in a while when I'm heading out to my Mom's house and I know how big they can get. So this video really tickled my funny bone! I'm not sure if one of these big ones took out after me that I wouldn't run, just out of sheer reaction!

We are definitely into full-blown Fall! We didn't figure that we would have any Fall colors this year after the heat that seemed to cook everything, but some of the trees are going all out. The funny thing, tho: this ash tree in front of our store turned a bright yellow that just glows, but it's sister tree, also an ash, across the drive, is still as green as can be. Now the leaves are falling off and people are tracking them into the store. We can't keep it swept up! But better that they track in leaves than snow! I'm not ready for that at all!

I'm so excited about this! Across the bridge is Century Pop Resort, where we have stayed in the past and we could see that there was construction on the other side of "the lake". We just figured since Century Pop represents the 1950s through the present that the other side would be the first part of the Century. But really, other than the Roarin' 20s, what would you do? I mean, you had the Depression and WWII. Not much to build on, there! We are planning on going in December of next year. We would probably have to make reservations now to get in, but we will probably just stay at Century Pop again and walk over and visit. I know a new Resort at Walt Disney world is kind of a trivial thing, but with all the worries and stress that seems to be happening right now, it's so nice to have something to look forward to and be excited about!

It's been going on for years. Usually in August or September. This year I'm running a little late and doing it in October. What is "it"? It's a dream I have with a reoccurring theme. I'm going about my day and suddenly realize it's Christmas Eve. And somehow time has passed and I didn't even realize it. Nothing is done. No decorating, no baking, No Presents! So I spend the dream running around trying to get everything done. Total panic. But this time it was different. It wasn't Christmas Eve. It was Christmas morning. I hadn't really forgotten. I just hadn't bought gifts. (No money, no time--I'm not sure why.) I think there was one each for my husband and the kids. I was very upset and heartbroken. A little background here--my husband grew up in a family that didn't do much for Christmas. So, from the beginning, he liked to do Christmas big. There's always been lots of presents. We've never spent alot of money, but there has always been lots of little things and everything had to be in a box and wrapped. Even if it was just a box of crayons. I guess that's why I was so sad in the dream. I really don't like these dreams and I hope that's it for this year! Now maybe I can go on and get things started!
