There are still a lot of Jack O'Lanterns loitering around the neighborhood. I think that the selection will begin to thin out as the month elapses, but for now there are plenty. NCW and I took an expedition to see if we could find a good representative of what's left. We took a different route, crossing to the east side of Victoria and walking east on Goodrich and back on Lincoln. This Jacko was somewhere along the route. He's starting to look a little haggard, but so far the squirrels haven't found him.
On our walk around the neighborhood auditioning the remaining Jacko's for the blog, we encountered this piece of sidewalk art. It looks a little different with a garland of fallen leaves around it, but expresses a pretty good sentiment. It's one of several pithy poems that St Paul has included on some sidewalk sections when they get replaced.
It's time for a status update on NCW's recovery from ankle surgery. As you can see, she's standing and walking, but still is dragging around the walking cast that protects her healing ankle. There will be a doctor visit next week and we'll see how the recovery goes from there. She seems anxious to get back to normal.
Tennis at Fort Snelling today was especially taxing. We played with a quality sub and struggled for over 90 minutes to get to a 7-5, 4-4 result. Close enough and quite a lot of fun and exciting points. I'm knackered.
