Thanksgiving weekend is upon us. Ladybug and partner will be arriving tonight. We'll be doing the big fixins tomorrow before heading off to Riverwood on Sunday for a few days, and after that we're expecting company back here in Mills. What I'm trying to say is that I may not be too active in this space for the next little while. I know that's a grievous pill for you to swallow, but there it is. :) Seriously though, you never know what time I'll either find or make between now and then, but I'll leave you with a few pics of Mills before I bid you a temporary but sweet farewell.
The first is off an out-of-the-way street that runs under a little railway bridge. In fact, a train had just gone by when I took this, but I was too late with the Canon Rebel. The old building in the background is now being used for a modern business, but I forget exactly what business at the moment.
The next two photos are both looking across the Mississippi from Riverside park. The first is a stand of birches, and the second shows a house. I have tried to frame both views with a tree and its branches. They both show that autumn is beginning to gallop apace. Last weekend, there was only a little colour, but, even early this week, we began to notice the acceleration. Overall, we're not at fifty per cent colour yet, but some stands are getting close.
