I'm not sure exactly when it happened. While we were in Florida, it was quite warm. It felt a little like summer, because humongous tiger mosquitoes feasted on us day and night. (Some of them were so big, they could've hauled us away to enjoy a bit of carry-out dining if they'd preferred.) In Alabama, it was warm, too. And windy. Now that we're home, I can't help but notice that fall ... has fallen.
Sure, a lot of trees are still wearing green, but there are new splashes of color everywhere. Colors that weren't there before we left town. Gasp-worthy colors. And there's a definite chill in the air, too, and a certain musky scent. Tendrils of smoke curl from a few chimneys in the neighborhood, and crunchy leaves languish ankle-deep in our front yard. Yup, no doubt about it. While we were gone, Nature started donning her finest duds, and now she's doing a slow strip tease. Just for us. Amazing, isn't it?
Year after year, it's a display that never fails to thrill. Except for that whole ankle-deep dead leaves in the front yard crap. Oh well. As soon as I finish this post, I reckon it's time to haul out the ol' rake before they reach the ol' patellas.
In the meantime ... when you're on a road trip, do you pay much attention to the billboards at the side of the highways? Some of them are pretty cut-and-dry boring, but others are kinda eye-catching. I especially liked the white lettering on black background ones that were supposed to be messages from God. Said stuff like, DON'T MAKE ME COME DOWN THERE. Very clever.
But, ladies and gentlemen, I'm gonna share some billboards with you now that are like none you have ever seen before. They come to us courtesy of the clever folks at dribbleglass.com, who graciously granted me permission to use them. Let's just say that if these billboards were at the side of the road ... we'd definitely notice.
Okay, that's about it for now, blogsters. Let's save some of those billboards for another time. (Always leave 'em wanting more!) Leave. Crap. Better go find that rake ...
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
