a small aside from the holiday memories. . .

. . .autumn is here already!!!!
yesterday I was waiting at a bus stop (for a bus) (y'all know that I don't have a car) and the bus wasn't coming (they never do) (and then, y'all know the "punchline" - three of them turn up at once) so I wandered about a little. . .

. . .and I looked up and saw a tree full of acorns

I do so like acorns!

I'm kinda betting that most everyone
has a soft spot for an acorn or two, eh?

more holiday photos tomorrow!

I like the little hats acorns have.

I, Like The View said...

I could knit you a hat like that - might be a bit girly tho

(mind you, I still have a scarf with your name on it, from the last time I knitted you something!)

Z said...

Our acorns aren't quite as big as that, but I agree that autumn is here. Al even had purple sprouting broccoli for sale - which means oncoming spring to me, but I'm old-fashioned.

I, Like The View said...

I think the seasons seem to be getting all mixed up together, Z; next year I think I'll take my holiday in May or June - the weather might be better

I used to think I was fairly old-fashioned

then I spent some time with Dave

Rimshot said...

I just think I'm fairly old. Old beyond my years. Old like ... erm ... something very not young.

I, Like The View said...

just wait until you're my age

Mel said...

Tell me he's not whining.....


I do, by chance, happen to like acorns! How'd ya know?!

And yup--some of the trees are starting up already.

I blame the full moon. :-/

Christopher said...

Bit worried about all this. Firstly three acorns (Lat. glans) have turned up at once, secondly there are certain overtones to make Horatio the Hamster blush, and then you've adopted a kind of Mel-speak that I find as confusing as it's attractive...but perhaps that's just me.

I, Like The View said...

oh Christopher. . . surely you know me well enough by now to know that I don't do rude!

how can someone (you) turn an autumnal nature table offering into something that would make a hamster blush? poor Horatio

tssk tssk


I forgive you tho


Rimshot said...

not whining, I meant old in my soul, old in my thinking, old in my intangible areas, not rings on a tree old.

I, Like The View said...

I kinda like rings in a tree old. . . and I must say, that when I think of you, I think of someone youthful


glad you're not whining - we try not to do whining, don't we

we do silver linings

don't we?

(with all the rain we've been having lately, one has to hope that there's a silver lining somewhere or other!)


mig said...

Acorns are a silver lining if you're waiting for a bus.
I do have a soft spot for acorns. It's on the lawn directly beneath the oak tree. They love it. Indeed if it wasn't for the man with the lawn mower we'd have a forest by now!

Mel said...

Oh!! She's got an acorn tree--otherwise known as an acorn tree! :-)

And I'm so glad he wasn't whining about his age, tree rings or not.

(only cuz I'd have to see his whine and raise him another....LOL)

Poor Horatio the Hamster--small wonder he's currently running backwards. :-/
