Pumpkins, Geese, and a Slow, Gray Day

Sunday, November 8, 2009. Thanksgiving is less than a month away, then there's the Christmas/New Year double holiday: and then we'll be able to relax. It's also autumn. I've seen flocks of geese heading south in those shifting V formations.

Householders who make a point of setting up yard displays have been shifting gears.

Halloween's gone: Here's Thanksgiving. Christmas? That's coming. November 5, 2009.

Hey, who ever said we can't have Jack 'o Lanterns out for Thanksgiving? They're ripe pumpkins, right? November 5, 2009.

Some folks have both Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations up: not a bad idea, considering what the weather's likely to be, after the end of this month.

Getting ready for the holidays. That snowman is doing something - unusual. November 8, 2009.

No, I wasn't seeing things. That snowman is roasting marshmallows over a wood fire. November 8, 2009.

The 1st State Bank sign is announcing time, temperature - and Toys for Tots, along with other community activities. The sign by the Stearns County Fairgrounds is advertising storage space, instead of coming events. We got more rain this afternoon, so this wound up being another one of those slow, gray days.
