Wow, November 1st already. Where has this year gone?
I have no new pictures from trick or treating last night. It was cold rainy and I wasn't feeling very good all day so I just skipped the pictures and looked forward to settling in for the night.
Yesterday morning though my yard was a flurry of activity. The birds were happy little campers out there at the feeder. Me? I was a happy little camper inside with my camera taking pictures through the window.
I'm not very good at identifying birds but I'm pretty sure that's a female cardinal on the right. For you experts, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong
This didn't turn out as good as I had hoped but those blue jays are fast. They sure don't sit in one place for very long.
I just liked the way this one looked.
Before I go I have to tell you about one little trick or treater we had last night. Wade likes to sit outside and wear a really ugly scary mask to pass out candy. A car pulled up across the street and a man and small boy got out. The man stood by his vehicle while the little boy ran across the street. He came running into the yard and when he saw Wade sitting in the chair he slowed down. He took a few steps closer and got a look at the mask. He let out a scream, turned around and ran all the way back to his dad.crying. I heard the guy yell out "You've got to be kidding me" He put the boy back in the car and they drove away.
This may sound cruel but I found it rather amusing. Now if this had been my kid, I think I would have brought him back over, asked Wade to take off his mask and show the kid that it was just pretend.
Not one of the other little ones took off running like that. Some were very cautious and the ones that looked totally intimidated Wade did take the mask off. That first little one though didn't even give him a chance to do that. I wonder if that little boy will come back next year?
