    END OF OCTOBER. Can you believe there’s only one more day of October? The weather just can’t make up its mind; it’s warm for a few days and then colder. A lot of people are sick with head colds, flu and pneumonia.

    The leaves on the trees changed colors really fast this fall, and they are falling. Time to get the rake out. I loved jumping and playing in the piles of leaves when I was a kid. Wonder if kids still do this.
