An Old-Fashioned Christmas

Apples, oranges, lemons and limes lend color and natural "flavor" 
to Sturdivant Hall's Christmas Open House.

Signs, Signs: Bama's Back!

So, with a win over No. 1 Mississippi State last weekend, Bama is back
 to the top of the College Football Playoff rankings,
 and I imagine that craftsmen of signs like these
 will be selling even more! 

This sign was for sale at the Orrville Tractor Show.

The Maples Have It!

It's been an unusally short but gorgeous fall this year, and the changing colors
 of maple leaves were caught on camera by Christine Weerts.
 From green to yellow to scarlet,
 the maples may have won "Best of Show!"

Sadly, early freezes have claimed most of Selma's leaves already! 
 But I'll be posting more fall colors to help work our way
 through the hit of possible record cold temperatures this week.
