The falling leaves

Today's strong south wind stripped away any leaf that was on the verge of falling. Suddenly, I can see the field through the woods where yesterday I only saw foliage.

The Twins' season ended with a whimper. We'll have to just remember last Sunday when the Twins took over the division lead on the last day of the season.

I am shot from this week. Classes, four speaking engagements, one in Mankato--and Laural's funeral.

Aunt Olla's 95th birthday party

Well, Aunt Olla's long-anticipated 95th birthday party went off without a hitch. For some reason, I had gotten the idea that it was to be held at 3 p.m. Still tired from yesterday, I took a nap and got started getting the house party-ready about 1:30. I had no more than swept the garage floor when three cars pulled in the yard. The party was off and running.
