The Halloween Moon was amazing

Adding something just right

Brightening the sky

But the above photo is just amazing! It appeared in my email Sunday morning:


“Full moon Halloween in northern Illinois:  In the pic above, that little dot in the upper right, in the break of the clouds, is Mars. I got lucky with the timing of this one.”

 

WOW! Is right!

Thank you ever so much for that Northern Illinois Moon and Mars!  A Perfect gift in email form.

In the Full of Night—Harvest Continues, Thursday, November 2, 2017

Joe Cooper, a long-time reader and delightful contributor to this little blog, sent the following email and photo–

“Hi Linda.
Hope all is well.
I went to pick up my daughter tonight from a friend’s house after trick or treating.
9 o’clock and they are harvesting the soybeans.

NW corner of Stewart and Simons Roads

Just thought I would pass it along.
Thanks for giving me a good read every day.
Joe”

Harvest going on long into the night!

Thank you, Joe!

From the farming world to your heart,

Linda

Theater

This 1954 view of Delta’s Egyptian theater shows one of the three marquis changes which the theater has had over the years. The street lamp in this photo has long since disappeared, and now there are two street lamps, one on each side of the theater. There are a few other differences, as well. You won’t see bicycles parked like these any more.

Thank you all —Late Autumn—Sunday, November 2, 2014

Falling-Leaves-2A storm blew in yesterday…although the temperatures were warm…75*.  The weather people are saying there is a strong possibly of (lots of) snow around the 8,000 feet by this evening and Monday morning.

Falling-Leaves-4  (Which is good) it’s good to be busy.

I got the house completely finished painting on the inside of the house…HAPPY DANCE!

I will start on the trim on the outside of the house and the fence.  Also, raking of the the leaves.  The work is starting to end down there…(which is another good thing)

13Tuesday Terry will check the corn again to see where the moisture content is…the ranchers are already combining their corn. They feed up the corn, as they combine, so they can use high moisture corn.

I wish to thank each and everyone of your for your heartfelt condolences about my Fuzzy. I hope to get each of you answered as time permits.  Please know that I appreciate your thoughts and kind words.  I know he was ‘just a dog’ but what A Dog he was!
