Fall-Colors

Stepford Fall colors brighten the day.

Fall again here at Stepford and I am catching up on work at the office, trying to get enough exercise not to get fat, experimenting with a new camera, and managed to paddle last weekend even though that involved playing hookie from worship service Sunday morning.  I shot some video with the new Pentax Optio W30 while driving earlier this week, and I’ll try to get that posted later this week, but I’ve got some deadline work I must complete by the weekend.  Moses Santiago suggested on a social networking site that I am in need of a lifeline. 

Late April – Early May

Over the past three weeks I’ve been busier with deadlines than at any time in the past several years.  Usually so even-tempered that small furry animals seek me out to renew their spirits in the environs illumined by my radiant glow, I have lately been cranky and difficult to live with.  Lucky, then, for Caution-Lady and Seventy-Six that I was only rarely home in the evenings before eight o’clock.  I also spent most Saturdays and Sundays away from the house engaged in related activities.

On the Saturday the Nashville area flooded, I worked at Stepford, but the weekend before that, at Shovel.  Stormed that weekend, too.  I snapped some pictures on the way home:

We’re hoping the ditching and sump-pump will go a long way to resolving the drainage issue:
