Here’s some photos of the last of the seasons butterflies and a praying mantis as well as some October facts that you may or may not have known.
Hope you enjoy!
Some important or maybe not so important dates in October:
And some quotes…
“Just before the death of flowers, and before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season when nature is all aglow.”
“Rain in October means wind in December.” – Farmer saying
“When birds and badgers are fat in October, expect a cold winter.
When berries are many in October beware a hard winter.”
– unknown proverb
“All things on earth point home in old October: sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken.”
– Thomas Wolfe
“October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks in. The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August, and February.”
Isn’t great knowing all this stuff…after the fact? Ah…better late than never, right? That’s the way it goes…now you know it for next year! And, actually, all these photos were taken in September, so it makes this so much better!!
And this, my friends, is what happens when you do something when you’re sick!! And life goes on!
“If ducks do slide at Hallowtide,
At Christmas they will swim;
If ducks do swim at Hallowtide
At Christmas they will slide.”
And a September quote for good measure…
“By all these lovely tokens September days are here
With summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.”

Hope you are having a great day so far!

If we are to have another contest of our national existence,
I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason's and Dixon's,
but between Patriotism and intelligence on one side,
and superstition, ambition, and ignorance on the other."
~ Ulysses S. Grant
The US right now is the perfect example of what can quickly happen to a prosperous business when you hire all the wrong people
Can someone update me on what's offensive today? It's hard to keep up!
Psalm 23 (KJV)
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Be thankful for the thorns and thistles which keep you from being in love with this world. ~ Charles Spurgeon
