Seven trees produce plenty of leaves.
Twenty-two bags of them so far.
We still have plenty of leaves to fall, so the total number of bags is bound to possibly double.
After dumping the leaves we visited a couple of church bazaars. As we were leaving the one at Grace United Methodist we heard the organ being played. We found our way to the sanctuary and sat for a while as the organist practiced for tomorrow’s services.
Tomorrow brings the Bass Pro Marathon. We have had some runners come to Springfield since the New York Marathon was cancelled. The route goes through our neighborhood and I got a couple of shots of the mile markers.
Tomorrow also brings the end of daylight savings time. The morning commute will be a bit brighter for a while.
This time exposure was taken at Delaware and Grand.
About the most interesting thing I have seen on the morning commute was a skunk on Drury University campus. I said, “Hey!” to it and at once its tail shot straight up and he watched me as I passed by. I was a good twenty feet from him and he must have felt that I presented no serious threat. From that distance it was fun to see him in the wild.
A more somber sight is this ghost bike set up where a fellow was struck by a semi and killed a few days back.
Eric was riding at night, ignored the red light at a major street and was struck. A friend of mine knew of him and said it seemed he was the type of person who liked to live on the edge. R.I.P.
