Farewell, Pond!

Buster here.  I suppose it was bound to happen.  Again!  Off we go, North to our little slice of Paradise, then very shortly, things start to disappear.  The dock.  The canoe.  The running water.  By then, I know it's going to be a long winter!

There's a certain chill in the air...and the wind is relentless!

Our green sugar maples are turning to red and orange.  But Mr. Loon still holds forth, occasionally unleashing his lonely cry.

Are they really going to take MY CANOE away?  Dang!  And I was just learning to paddle!

No one's around.  Except the Loon.  But I think the place is kinda pretty with no humans.

Moments like these make a gray-bearded dog kind of reflective.  I just can't remember what I was reflecting upon. 

The White Pine That Ate Cleveland is shedding its needles all over.

I think I'll take my human manservant for one last walk down the road!

Okay--Battle Stations!  I get the back seat for the trip home!

We pass the old arched bridge over the Ashuelot River.

 The recent rains have created a torrent!

Then, before I know it, I'm home!  I hope spring comes soon!

Your friend,

We're getting excited about all our friends getting snow. It's still warm and sunny where we live, but can the snow flakes be far away?
