Fall

ABOUT TO FALL
A leaf and a water drop have a conversation
With both in a precarious position on the branch of a tree
Leaf – “I do not want to fall”
Raindrop – “Its our time
Gravity will return us to the earth”
Leaf – “Gravity sucks”
I just want to be green again”
Raindrop “To recycle is to be green”
Leaf – “Too profound for me!
My be-leaf is that life is too short to worry about gravity.
Please God Fly me to the moon.
I do not want to fall”

WHO DISCOVERED PIZZA? – “Egyptians made a flatbread, the Indians baked naan … neither of these had toppings. The Persians had toppings, but was it pizza? The ancient Greeks had a flat bread called plakountos, on which they placed various toppings, and we know also that Naples was founded (as Neopolis) by the Greeks. And Naples is the home of the modern pizza”
But in all honesty mushroom pizza was created by NATURE herself by the mushroom family. It was so delicious looking I nearly ate it!! Anybody know what kind of mushroom this is?

WILD TURKEYS IN NEWTON with SUNRISE
A QUESTION???? One Male One Female or 2 Males?
September 23 2016
132
2 Males What I learned was that the males have a beard (ringed in red).
My first guess Male with splayed feathers had his eye on a female
Subsequently learned that the “beard” is another distinguishing male feature

ITS THE FALL AND THE TRUMP HAS FALLEN FLAT ON HIS FACE – NO HUMANITY WAS FOUND –
That is exactly how he was lying – yes –
he was found lying, he lies all the time
He lies, his wife lies, he lies with his wife, his wife lay him, and lie him, he lies to women, he lies with woman, he lay women, he lies about being with women, he lies without women, he lies with women, he lies about women, he lies to himself, he lies with himself, he lies to people, he has become (and probably has always been) a has-been, and an out and out, inside out, outlier liar

THE BATTLE FOR SPACE AND TIME
Observations of a dOG wALKER
Green vs Brown vs White.
Green has had her time and is a mere beautiful memory – and she knows it as she fades into the background
Brown has not yet given up, and rises above White.
White rests in quiet confidence She knows that time and space for the near future is on her side

BENJY”S WISDOM
Asked Benjy what lessons he had to give our family as we face a new season
He said “Read my body language –
PUT THE “BUTS” BEHIND, and the “ANDS” A-HEAD No “but”, regrets, or excuses for the past
– just go forward and accumulate all the “ANDS” of positive experience”
Hence his stance on this matter as he faced the fall season and the coming winter season

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU A COLD SHOULDER

Look at the bright side

And it will also be a little softer and warmer

ABOUT TO FALL IN THE FALL – a poem
Who shall live and who shall die?
…all of us! said the leaves with a sigh
Fall is a gentle remind Not to leave any dreams behind
Not to go to bed
With things left unsaid
And to live the day In the fullest way!

THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT
Lichen on a tree stump in the shape of an owl and a pussy cat
The Owl and the Pussy-Cat
BY EDWARD LEAR
I
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”
II
Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?”
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.
III
“Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
