November (already)

 It seemed that, here in Texas at least, we went from summer to fall almost overnight. Suddenly (it seems), we're into the last two months of the year. Say good-bye (and good riddance) to Daylight Saving Time. The State Fair of Texas has come and gone already. The World Series will wind down soon, the football schedule is half-way over,  and they're already talking about the Winter Olympics. (Whether the US should participate in that is a topic for another time, although I have my opinion there).

For those who've been curious, my corner of North Texas celebrated Halloween in its own way on Sunday evening, and we had a few--actually, a very few--small children going trick-or-treating around our neighborhood in the twilight hours. Then, whether the grown-ups gathered around TV sets to watch the Cowboys or World Series or just to rest before the upcoming Monday, it was all over.

Oh, and if it hasn't hit you yet, Christmas is just around the corner--again. What happened to the rest of the calendar? Are you ready? That's what I thought.

We had a few trick-or-treaters. They were ridiculously cute. The weather has turned chilly and rainy here in central Virginia, good writing weather.:-)

Yes, the usual answer seems to be "a few."

I had two sets of trick or treaters and they were at least 12 or older. I was just glad to get rid of some of the candy I bought. lol.

I'm with you on finally getting our hour back they stole in March.

I have no idea where the year went, either.

Hey, everyone knows you give away the candy you don't like first, and save the rest for yourself.
