On the leafpeep trip today, I saw a number of “democrats for trump” signs and it was the least connected to party stuff I’d ever seen. I will not link to the site,as it is just a data harvest point and wouldn’t give them the clicks.
If you call yourself a democrat… how the devil could you support that guy? Just goes to show you, there are dumbasses and people full of crap on all sides of this race.
Assuming that is a legit group and not just a complete bowl of bologna…. what would cause someone to go over in that way?
I was curious and found this link https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2020/09/18/these-are-the-top-democrats-who-have-endorsed-trumps-reelection/amp/
From the signs –
“Coastal elitists and left-wing radicals have taken over the Democrat Party and are dictating everything from a sham impeachment process to the outright embrace of socialism. While lifelong Democrats no longer recognize the Democratic Party and feel forgotten by their party, President Trump has been keeping his promises to fight for ALL Americans.”
OK. To hell with trump, and that laughable noise.. If you agree with the quote above, please help me understand why I would, or should associate with you?
A little drive for leaf peeping caused us to find the cutest use of columns for Halloween decorations that I have seen this season! #tootsierollpopghosts #boo #cementspectres https://instagr.am/p/CGtKWI2AyKe/
Leaves are really starting to show change. For wedding anniversary this weekend (14th!) we are thinking about loading the inlaws into the car and going for a local leaf peep, maybe a few sugar maples will jump us into the autumnal halloween spirit.
Let’s see, critter counts were low, but I did see Panda cat, about a half dozen squirrels, a v formation of maybe 20 geese (not as large as last night’s 32)
Three black vultures, but no sea birds. Where are the osprey and the gulls?
So many spiders today. I would guess that I saw at least 4 varieties, maybe a total of a dozen before I lost count. Mostly the fuzzy little wolf spiders but a couple of weirdos in the mix, too. (See other posts from today)
No neighborhood dogs in the yard either, weirdly quiet.
Saw my first carved Jack-o-lantern on my block, a batman logo at the kettle bell family’s place. I wonder if the eagle is still behind that house, I have not seen or heard from it in a while.
The gas station up the road opened last Monday, after being closed for renovations since last December. I wonder how it is inside, but I don’t think I will break my streak of only being inside two building streak (my home primarily and the inlaws once or twice) and risk catching anything for the sake of a milky way bar and a glance at what they have on offer at the newly set up hot food counter. I wonder how long the renovations would have taken in noncovid times? Even dec-March seems like a long time, but they did literally knock over the building and replace the gas tanks and pumps.
I need to get a picture of the chicken chef sometime on walkabout. Maybe next time I will head to the bay for my morning leg stretch.
Another spider from my #swampwalk, this one was a beast. Web was immense and the round part was maybe 75ish% the size of a dime. Very spindly legs too… translucent yellow – orange with very little visible hair, made them look like it lived in a smoker’s house(I prefer fuzzy spiders)

Trying not to walk through the spiderwebs was tricky this morning, thankfully sunlight and dew helped to spot them for the most part. https://instagr.am/p/CGpdHK5AyNE/
from @paula_schultz 21. today’s word is yokai. I had a hard time choosing which yokai to draw because there are so many amazing options. I chose the Gashadokuro because its a giant skeleton which wanders around in the countryside at night and i love drawing skeletons and i loved visiting the japanese countryside! had to include a train in this one from all our times training around Japan.
