Enjoy Autumn

--Keep close to nature's heart . . . and break away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.--

John Muir said this many years ago, and it is so true yet today. Although you may have some trouble finding a real mountain in the Midwest, you can still climb to a high place and look over the countryside. Or just take a walk in the woods and smell fall all around you. A time of celebration. A time for thinking back to the season just past.

The Old Timer says: Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it is curiosity that keeps a person alive and thinking.
