As usual, I am very pleased by your photos. It was 42 here when I got up this morning. It's a relief down here. After this past summer it will take a couple of months before I bitch about cooler weather. And yes. I'm older than you are, so I just add more and more layers and hope we won't have a February like the one two years ago. Thank you for the flying flock information.

Thank you Judith, I've used up all of my mini-vacation pictures. Now I'm going to have to go walking around the neighborhood to see what kind of Halloween, and Fall leaf changing pictures I can find, since I don't have time for another mini-vacation, and what time I have left will be used in preparation for my imminent departure to warmer climes.

Although I am *much* younger than either of you <grin!>, have you introduced yourself to the glories of GoreTex? Very lightweight, rainproof, and miraculously keeps you warm. Oh yes, it's quite expensive. I'm very much enjoying your blog, pictures, and point of view: thanks!

I guess this will prove how old I really am. I've been using Gore-Tex since the 1980s. There wasn't much call for it when I was living in Miami Florida, but when I moved to Colorado and discovered that all land wasn't as flat and hot as Miami, the first time I walked up some hills when the temperature was below freezing and found my clothing both wet and cold, I quickly discovered Gore-Tex, it was that, or I was either going to freeze to death, or buy more ammo and move back to Miami. And even today my sneakers have a layer of Gore-Tex in them.

I now survive winter by simply not going outside. If I have to go out, I go to the car in our underground parking then mostly to attached parking garages. I have to go out in both November and December to places with only surface parking, though, so we'll see how I do then. I hope it doesn't snow since I don't own any boots. I know, it's dumb to live in Minnesota without boots but, hey, I am stubborn about some things.

It sounds like you've got it figured out Linda. For me it seems like the older I get the less I'm able to deal with the cold weather. I used to have a wide range of temperatures where I was relatively comfortable, but that wide range of temperatures has now narrowed down to, the temperature of Colorado in the summer, and the temperature of Arizona in the winter. Anything that varies more than that is too hot or too cold for me.

I had started your second paragraph and just spit out the sip of water I had just taken. I couldnt help it. I laughed. So now I have to mop down my screen and keyboard.

Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you, my family was out of town yesterday and it was my job to take care of what passes for the family dog. So I slept at their house last night, to keep the dog company.
