If that sounds familiar it's because it's exactly what I said last week – except that this week I actually stopped to take a few pictures.
Sunday, October 17th
Dr. M took a picture of this robin that sat very properly on the birdbath for a while.
And then he went to town – splish splash he was takin' a bath!
Later that afternoon we played bocce for a while. Our yard is a bit on the uneven & concrete-ish side, so instead of a game of skill it was a game of chance. The boy from next door decided that he wanted to try.
That is until the ice cream truck came by. It was funny – I was just trying to get a picture of the truck & here comes A barreling down the driveway to get his popsicle.

These days it's dark when Dr. M gets to school, so he often catches the campus herd in action.
On his way home he took a picture of one of my favorite houses in Yellow Springs – fall is when it shines the most – fits right in with all the foliage.

I love this picture of a squirrel on Dr. M's campus! It's just doing what squirrels are supposed to do this time of year.
Dr. M also took some pictures of seasonal decorations – and some really lovely flowers.
These trees are on the street behind our house.
Look! I took some pictures! Here is the Tax Time Pig – no longer a red devil. I think he's a ninja pumpkin this week. If you look in the background you can see that they've dressed their goose up for Halloween too.
When I left for lunch a medical helicopter was taking off from the lawn in front of my building – they use it because it's so wide & flat (remind me to take a picture of the lawn sometime!). In my effort to capture the helicopter (it's just in the top of the tree at the bottom of the picture) I got this great sun shot. Now this is the type of accidental photo I like!
Dr. M took a ton of pictures of the fall foliage this week – it was so hard for me to pick just a few! To see a couple of others check out yesterday's post.

Dr. M was finally able to get a good picture of the ducks at this dam – the traffic is usually too bad for him to be able to stop there.
Here are a couple of pictures just to remind everyone of where we live.
Seasonal decorations – love how the pumpkins look with the wagon.

Dr. M was drawn to the moon on Friday – here it is on his way to school. Love the low lying fog & how the frost makes it look like there's snow on the ground.
On his way home he took a picture of the river he crosses.
And here is the evening moon, taken from our yard.
Saturday, October 23rd
Dr. M got up at a ridiculous hour of the morning, as usual, and took yet another moon picture – I thought this one was really Halloweeny through the trees.
Here are our window decorations. We have two neighbors who take this holiday seriously, so we try to keep up appearances at our house in our own understated way. Yes, this is understated.
When I finally rousted myself out of bed I took a picture of our door decoration (I’m sitting on the floor, which is why he seems to be looming over me). We've just named him frankencrow because last year's hot sun caused him to start falling apart (the disadvantage of glue, I guess), so he's pinned together using various implements. Including my one year pin from my last job.
And here is Martha Goose in her October finery. Yes, that’s my fuzzy sock & croc shod foot in the corner.
