We suffered a detrimental fire in our home a couple of weeks ago. Everybody was safe, most of our stuff is wrecked; but again, everybody is safe. As of now, I don’t care about the singed wedding dress, charred antique study desk or smoke-damaged couch.
The month of October gave us its massive changes. Not only did we witness the fascinating foliage show early in the month, but we watched as wind and rain brought down the leaves by the middle of the month.
