First the weather, now the leaves. I was on the way back from home from Asheville and noticed that the leaves, especially in the higher elevations, like Asheville, have begun to turn. There are even a few here in Charlotte that have gotten the message, too. I imagine that by the end of next week, it will all pretty much be done. I noticed, too, that there were a number of Florida license plates to be seen. Damned leaf peepers…

The other day I had a chuckle when I saw this sign. Why? Because Pedro and I are silly when we get together, quoting movie lines, saying silly things and this was one of our favorites. Of course, we knew the function of the sign, using the word “slow” as an imperative. Without punctuation, we decided to use it as an adjective. Therefore: Slow children at play. 🙂 We imagined watching them as they moved in slow motion … “Thrrrrrrrrrooooooowwwwwww…

Last week, I ordered another rental camera, this time a Panasonic Lumix LX 100. I’d read so many good things about it that I just wanted to try it. It’s a rival of the Sony RX 100 IV, though a bit larger. Anyway, my rental period was to be 7 days, Monday to Monday. I placed the order on Thursday, Lens Rentals shipped on Thursday night. On Saturday afternoon, as I was about to head to Vanessa’s house, I heard…

As the rain fell from the far reaching tendrils of hurricane Matthew, I was taking my sister to the Greyhound station at around 1:30 AM, this fine Saturday morning. Rain. Rain. More rain. We arrived. She checked in; I picked a spot as far from the TV as I could, in the row behind this gentleman and his dog. My sister, however, wanted to sit closer to the exit door, so we moved. This put us almost directly in front…
