What doesn't kill us

makes us stronger*. Right?

Geez that raking sure uses up prime stringplay time. But exercise is exercise I guess. One must do something to offset the M&M consumption.

I'd say the leaves are about 70% off trees. The hickory let go all at once after a cool snap last week. The oaks are still holding tight.

And just to show you what I'm up against, check out this photo

Doesn't take too many leaves of this size to make a load!

The yard is just covered with acorns this year. I've never seen so many acorns and many the size of pecans. Thanks to good old Google I was able to find out some information about this year's bounty.

Dull November brings the blast,
Then the leaves are whirling fast.

*At least according to Fredrich Neitzsche. Can't say that I agree with many other things he said, however.

Look at that leaf! It's a monster!

Want to come rake here when you're done?

You're gonna have to eat a ton of M&Ms to make up for all that calorie-burning. Yummm. :)
