FALL IS IN THE AIR

Autumn

Don't you wish you could drive down this road.. I sure would. Now with the weather being so hot and humid still, it is had to believe that Sept. will soon be upon us.  Even Wal-Mart has their mums out now, so you know it is getting close. I was out in my garden picking tomato's and it just made me think of fall. When I think of fall I think of Apple picking , all the colors of the trees, the smells of fall, wood burning in our chimanay pot with a nice cup of  hot tea sitting out on my patio. I have to admit Fall is my favorite time of the year. Spring is up next  then Summer.

   We have a festival coming up at the end of this month, I is ACD, Auburn Cord and Duceinburge ? spelling my be wrong. Any way it starts on Thursday and ends the Monday after.  Out side of town we have a huge park called  Kruse Int. they are a big auction company, and they auction off all kinds of cars trucks and such, very old ones. People for all over the World descend on out little town. We have  a nice craft show around our Court Square on Sunday, it is so busy up town you can hardly walk. And out at the auction site they have a flea market with lots of old car parts and things women would like. I love to watch the auction going on and all the people bidding on the cars. They also have had some pretty famous cars also, The Batmobile one of  Marilyn Monroe's car, one of the cars the Pope used, not sure which one, and some others I can't remember,,,,,,  old age.  ha ha.

Oh on Saturday they have a parade of the old cars, and out bands march it is pretty nice they park around the square and you can get a better look at them they play old music threw speakers up town. I will be taking my camera with me so I can share it with every one of my blog Friends. I have learned that a good Blogger always has her camera with her. On my next post it will be our time for the Fair, and then other craft shows, so keep and eye out for my posts. I hope you enjoyed reading about our ACD festival.

I wish to Thank Every One of My Dear Friends for your kind and sweet comments. Some are new ones, It is so great to have some new friends pop up and read my ramblings. I made sure I bookmark them so I can visit them.  So until next time I Pray every one has a wonderful Friday.  God Bless;

Hugs;

Hi Alaura. We had cooler weather yesterday and I got a touch of fall fever!! I've been in my classroom a couple of times already starting to get ready for the big day.

Your weekend festival sounds like fun! I know my hubby and son would love to see those old cars.

take care,
Dawn

It's so odd for me to hear folks talking about fall. It's August and I live in South Florida, where it's still summer in September! We get fall weather toward the end of October!

Your picture of the beautiful fall leaves makes me homesick for New Jersey...we do not have a dramatic fall here in Florida, although there certainly is a change in the weather that I do look forward to! I have read some of your posts and enjoyed your writings and pictures!

I am loving that picture! You never ever see those kind of colors in California. Wow, love the change of seasons. I have to change the color of seasons in my house because you rarely see them outside here. Oh well. Enjoyed your post!
Blessings, Debbie
