I got the firewood stacked, and I'm ready for November.
The Arborvitae has grown to be the green privacy wall I had hoped it would be. The Yarrow has found a home, too.
I had a portion of the concrete driveway sawcut and removed the summer I bought the house (2001).

These little visitors to my backyard are very much like the Chickadees: They're about the same size and very friendly. I usually only see one at a time, though, whereas there's a threesome of Chickadees (who seem to enjoy my company as much as I enjoy theirs). They love being upside-down and sideways.
Just the other morning a Nuthatch repeatedly came to the feeder and we were eye to eye like in the picture--about 18 inches. Moments like that are very rewarding.

I had a beautiful visitor to my backyard today...
I may have seen three females in the birdbath a week ago--I couldn't make a positive identification. Though subtler in coloring than the breeding male, the three of them were striking in the shadowy corner of my garden.

Jon Miller has a great home run call for those hit by Latino Giants:
You can hear him in this vid @ 0.41.
Miller has been quoted for his call (which I saw and heard) of three base-running mistakes in one play by Ruben Rivera:
"THAT WAS THE WORST BASE RUNNING IN THE HISTORY OF THE GAME!!"
Here's the clip.

O people of the world! Build ye houses of worship throughout the lands in the name of Him Who is the Lord of all religions. Make them as perfect as is possible in the world of being, and adorn them with that which befitteth them, not with images and effigies. Then, with radiance and joy, celebrate therein the praise of your Lord, the Most Compassionate. Verily, by His remembrance the eye is cheered and the heart is filled with light. --Bahá'u'lláh
