It's a darn nice October

It was a very nice day for walking and also for just breathing the warm 70º air. There is a big red-orange maple on the corner of my block which just came into its glory. There are trees that are still holding back, but this maple just decided to go for it. It'll be bare in a couple of days - everything is temporary - but today it was a star.

When we got back from the walk around the neighborhood there was a package from Shutterfly waiting for me. We decided to use some northern Minnesota photography to decorate the new kitchen wall above the sink. The picture that I chose was one that I posted on September 25 when Santini was with us on the Mesabi trail just outside of Calumet. I cropped it and had it blown up to 10 by 24 inches, and printed on a suitable surface. I got it back and mounted it on the wall. I must say that I'm pleased with the result.

My own photo on my kitchen wall.

There was some tennis with the hard core girls and Jerry again tonight at Wooddale. It was a fun night and I again realized that playing inside is more fun than playing outside in wind and sun. The quality of play is better and the ball usually stays in play quite a bit longer.

I really, really like the photo art. And I remember the walk when that shot was taken. Nice.

Maples are in their glory this time of year, and this has been a good year for their color in your area. Amazing color.
