I'm getting very tired of all the bad economic news, falling stock market, etc, etc. Everything is so gloom and doom. So I decided to make note of those things that make me laugh, smile, thankful, or just happy. Today we were raking leaves and I saw that the squirrels had started on the second of our three fall pumpkins. Clearly we must not be keeping the bird feeders full. At least they were considerate enough to not touch the side of the pumpkin facing the street.
