This is the time of the year that I call the " inbetweens ", where it is still too warm here, but not cool enough where our winter birds will start showing up. Just about the only thing here is our regular all the time species, that you can find here around your feeders.

I was kind of hoping that we would have had a round of frost here to turn off the lawn mowing app in this area of Lebanon. We are planning to decorate the yard for Halloween, with a few tombstones and other haunted houses thingys, but to get all of the stuff out will require mowing around them.

I hope that everyone is enjoying this wet October. This is usually the driest month of the year. I would be safe to say that the good Lord knows more than us mortals.

It looks like we are fixing to get another dose of cooler weather. I remind myself of the period of time back in 2011 when I came down sick and was in a coma for 14 days. It was still short sleeve weather when I went in the hospital at U.M.C., on the 11th day of October.

Relief is on the way, no, I don't mean the kind you get with " plop plop fizz fizz", save that for stomach ailments. I am talking about the coolness in the air. Sure, it will probably get back to being stuffy hot in the afternoons, but I am going to enjoy the cooler temperatures while we have them.

Looking out my backdoor, this is not a song by Credence Clearwater Revival, but physically looking out my back window, I did notice that since Dove season has started that I seem to have a few more visitors to my feeders.

This past weekend marks the end of most summer activities, such as recreational swimming at most pools here in Wilson County. I am located just a hop, skip and a jump from the Jimmy Floyd center on Castle Heights Avenue North, where one can sit in the back yard and hear all of the excitement coming from the young people having their last hurrah's of the season.

Some things come and some things go. I am talking about the Wilson County Fair which scooted out of here this past Saturday night.
