It’s always fun to go to Boiling Springs to visit my son and his family.
Scott is taking guitar lessons and sounds really good.
Alex put a Halloween scarf on Sadie.
Chris grilled some burgers for us.
On the way home we stopped by Benzette to see the elk and were surprised to find this bull and 5 females right near the road. He wasn’t even bothered that cars were stopping and people were taking his picture.

The table was set with the dishes that the girls gave me for my birthday.
I gave each of the girls a baking mix (blueberry, pumpkin or cranberry muffin), a kitchen towel and small utensil.

Welcome to fall in Bradford! We awoke this morning to the contrast of snow covering the colored leaves.
Sadie and I decided to go for a walk in the nearby Willow Dale Cemetery. She wore her new winter coat and jumped in the snow and pulled at the leash to get a sniff of some little animal who found shelter under a bush. It was so beautiful there with snow on the trees. Our first snowfall was spectacular!

This picture of the courtyard looks pretty nice, doesn’t it? Well, what you don’t see is all the fine snow coming down fast. You don’t feel the 31 degree temperature and the wind. Yes, it’s fall/winter in Bradford. It comes early, even before the leaves have changed and fallen. We are hoping for an Indian summer, but the forecast doesn’t look good..snow, snow and more snow. It was time to bundle up Sadie when she goes for her walks.
Here she is in her winter jacket..notice the fur collar. When we went for our walk this afternoon she didn’t even mind that she had a coat on. It kept her from getting wet from all those snowflakes.
And this is her sweater with a snowflake on the back. She actually likes this one. She is definitely a Bradford dog.
This is a picture Don took before I read the book, Leader of the Pack. Sadie, and Top Gun too love to sleep on the back of the sofa. Now I know that it was a sign of a dominant dog so she can’t do that anymore.
