Thanks to PrairyErth we've become monarch tagging enthusiasts. The monarchs have been migrating for several weeks now. I've just started tagging with some success. The butterflies roost in trees overnight and while they are warming themselves, pre-flight in the morning, they are pretty easy to catch.
Clicking the above title should take you to a youtube about the monarchs' migration.

I feel a little like Rip Van Winkle must have when he awoke from 20 years of sleep. Maybe I've been dreaming or maybe the allergy meds have just curtailed my brain's activity. Whatever the case, I feel like maybe I'm waking up and beginning to smell the coffee. Hope to have some interesting posts in the near future. Hope everyone has been keeping up with Brandon's trail journal (he's nearing the end) and hope all is well in all the family camps!

It does feel like fall. I love the full moon on the mornings i'm walking/jogging. it lets you see the skunks waddling across the road. Wish i would have planted a fall garden - but the weeds would have gotten in the way a bit :) I need to get some manure from your stack! anyone have a fall garden? we did have pumpkins growing in the compost...but i got over zealous and mowed over enough to make them wither. just wanted to say hi to everyone. ot at work is over (for now) so i feel a bit like i'm back in the human race. We will be grilling some burgers and playing some outside games on saturday sept 27, and you all are welcome to come. just to relax in the gazeebo if you wish. Around 1 in the afternoon. love you all. MO

Not just a great Neil Young song... it is the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox. So I think it is the moon that heralds in crisp days, hot chili bowls, football games, shuffling walks through fallen leaves, fuzzy sweaters, open windows, and of course, the final harvests of the season.

Julia Chen, an exchange student from China, will be with us for the next few weeks! It's a wonderfully small world, we are learning. Julia enjoys board games, likes spaghetti and pizza, gets frustrated with bowling and speaks better English than most Oklahomans (present company excluded, of course!).
