A Breath of Fall

Sam enjoying the front porch on a pretty fall day

Ahhh...fresh air...freshly mowed grass...flowers...and no bears, stray cats, or marauding squirrels to BUG me!

Doing my best impression of a cat statue….not bad huh?  Actually it was a picture perfect fall day out here in the countryside and Mom was wandering around taking pictures – I thought I’d cooperate and let her take one of me almost PERFECTLY centered on the welcome mat.  You know me – I couldn’t resist being just slightly off-center….. 🙂

The weather gurus say we will have a return to more normal for this time of year temperatures later this week along with some arriving rain.  We’ll be in the 60s instead of the 80s.  I can dig it.

I see Mom and Dad haven’t polished the brass kickplate on the front door in a while.  Hmm…I need to remind them to do that.   I would look SOOOOOOOOOOO much more handsome with a shiny brass background, don’t you think???

Mom finished working on her cover for the new kids book yesterday.  It looks pretty swell.  If she can get a picture of it that I can share on my blog I will do that.  I know you’re DYING to see the final result after I teased you with that photo the other day.  HAHA  I know – I’m just a big tease huh?!

Happy Monday – and Happy Columbus Day from an explorer in his own right…………Sammy

  1. Ya big ham, ya. Just kidding,if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

    It about time for the weather to start getting colder, you are right. It has been nice down here in the swamp, but eighty degree weather is just unaccaptable in October, huh?


    • Hi Uncle J……..I think it’s confusing to Mother Nature when the weather is all over the place. BUT with the cool nights, my maple trees – especially the red and orange ones in the backyard – are SOOOOOO pretty. Soon they’ll drop their leaves I just bet – then the FUN begins!

      Hi Zoe!


  2. Sammy, lookin’ handsome posing there on the front walk!!
    The weather has been gorgeous, that’s for sure. I’ve been watching it from my window-seat!
    Happy Monday!
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae………I bet you’re happy your parents are back home even though your big brother took good care of you! It’s gonna be another beautiful day here……..Dad’s flying, Mom’s doing laundry, and I’m waiting for her to take a break to take me out on that front porch again!

    • Hi Miss D……….I’ll tell Mom you approve of her fall porch decorating. I think I add the perfect touch to the tableau……I aim to please! 🙂

      Have a beautiful fall day yourself there on the farm…………
      Kitty Hugs, Sam


  3. I love your picture today, Sammy! Your mom certainly has your front porch looking absolutely beautiful. I bet you are really enjoying these gorgeous fall days! I’m curious about the car video under your blog today? Love from Eddie (the JR), Simone (the collie) and Mattie (the foxhound)


    • Hi Terrell Gang! Hmm…..I don’t know about that car video – I’ll have to see what that’s all about cuz I didn’t put it there……I agree that Mom has fixed MY porch up nice. It’s a great place to sit and think and ponder the weather situation. Life is good.

      You guys have a super day too!!


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
