Hello and happy Sunday greetings! The air is crisp and the leaves, they are a-changing. Pumpkin season is here, I like it!
I snapped this pic this morning as the peak is covered with its first official snow of the season. We've had some dustings in the last few weeks, but with this, it's moved officially into "snowed upon". It's prettier when not looking at it through a dumb phone.
My P.E.O chapter hosted a local Oktoberfest fundraiser yesterday. I haven't heard the final numbers, but I think we made a pretty good haul. Beer and brats, what's not to like?
As for us, we actually weren't in attendance. Magnum, Meego, and I decided to spend a day in Denver. The zoo has added some nice big habitats since we were last there a few years ago, so we decided to check them out.
It was a great day for it, perfect weather and the summer crowds have passed. I, for one, still enjoy a visit to a nice zoo, and it was nice to see plenty of others of all ages enjoying it too. However, it did serve to remind me of the uneasy state of my aquarium...
I remember visiting that zoo nearly 30 years ago with a guy I was dating at the time. Seems we just went in the afternoon, walked in a loop for about an hour or two, and that was that. Now the place is huge.
Another good push to get out was the fact that we've been having intermittent problems with our internet service. It's probably from our modem being about to die. The bright side to that is that we've seen plenty of Chaco this week since talking to the official "Tech Support" only seems to make matters worse if anything.
So for that, I'm grateful that Chaco lives so close by. I told him, "shouldn't you just teach me all of this?", but I guess he'd rather just come over. Surely it has nothing to do with my own computer tech savviness. Or lack thereof.
And that reminds me, the feed died while Magnum and I were in the middle of watching an episode of "The Walking Dead" - Season 4 just released on Netflix. We're gonna have to hook in and catch the rest of that episode before the modem zombies take away our streaming capability again!
