Day 130 - Fall Decorations

Guess we'll be posting Christmas decorations pretty soon. I took a ride around my neighborhood late yesterday and saw this basket (it's quite large) with fall flowers and scarecrow. So cute!

Day 129 - Sunshine

This was my view crossing the causeway this morning heading into work. Took the photo thru the windsheild (hence the spots) as it was too cold to get out and stand in the wind.

Day 128 - Wedding House

I took this photo before the leaves started turning and just found it (didn't go out today, so had to revert to something saved). This house sits on a corner in Guntersville and is the house my parents got married in on November 27, 1937. They didn't make 50 years either, my Dad died in 1983.

They had friends who lived there and it was just them, my parents and the minister. It was during the depression and both families lived way out in the country and no one had any money, so they kept it a secret from their families for a several weeks.

Day 127 - Sea Gulls

It was a cold, breezy morning and the sea gulls were going nuts along the causeway as I drove to work this morning. If you enlarge the photo you can see some of their antics.

Day 126 - Handsome Frosty

Frosty went to the groomers today and is now officially "handsome". He's currently resting in my lap - it was a rough day for the baby.

Day 125 - Cancer Clinic

The fourth floor of this building houses the Cancer Clinic in Huntsville (38 miles from my house) where I went weekly for a year and a half for treatments. Today was a 'follow up' visit. PET Scan was clear (BIG YEA!!!) and they didn't even draw blood today (another BIG YEA!!!). I don't have to go back for three months.

It's such a relief when he tells me that :)

Day 124 - More trees

I don't know what these two huge trees are. They sit next to a large pond (which doesn't show in the photo - I was in my car). In the summer time they look like evergreens, very similar to a cedar. But, this time of the year their 'leaves' (not really leaves though) turn a lovely reddish brown. The first year I saw them I thought they were dying - but they always turn green again.
