The day began dark and gloomy, but the sun broke through mid-morning, and out came blue skies. We began our local jaunt with a quick stop for our senior java...I'm sorry, but that's the kind of host I am.
It's all about my caffeine fix, so there! Pink Baby wanted to order, and I told her she had to use her old lady voice, which she did, causing the corgis to giggle in the back seat.
This is the last blooming flower we have in the yard. We always have one die-hard October rose, and this one is a beauty. This one is directly out our back door, and PB wanted a nature shot for Kylie.
Our tiny town is home to Manchester College, a small liberal arts school, full of future CPA's, teachers and science majors mostly. The total population is 1200 students, and it's where daughter April got her undergrad. PB HAD to see the culture hub of our small town, USA. They do a lot for our community, and host the fireworks each 4th of July. We live just down the street.
In the center of town, this plot of land was donated, and delights the masses. It's deeply wooded, has concrete benches throughout for rest or meditation, and the paths are well mulched. It smells so good walking through, no matter the season. We're lucky to have it.
I checked everyone for ticks before heading home; no worries Kylie!
