(By the way, loving your answers!! You guys make me smile!!)

I am really excited!!

I am feeling a little nostalgic today and since it is now officially fall I will leave you with this beautiful image of The Albony Covered Bridge surrounded by the beautiful colors of autumn.

I love covered bridges, not sure why, maybe because my grandpa liked them so much, but there is just something so beautiful and interesting about them. Is it because you can enter as one person and may leave as another? Or is the image of crossing over to a place unknown but you know as you make your way you are sheltered?

I found a poem that kind of explains how I feel.

"What stories could these bridges tell
If they could only talk?
They'd tell us of the ones who rode
And those who had to walk,
The rich, the poor....those in-between
Who used their planks to cross,
The soldiers, farmers, businessmen
In buggies, sleighs, by "hoss",
Like sentinels these bridges stand
In spite of flood and fire,
Their rugged, stalwart strength remains
Our future to inspire.

Such a pretty bridge! I can't believe how warm it is here in New England. We just had dinner out on the porch. Love that Fall is late..., and winter maybe never (= wishful thinking)! Your stick project turned out great by the way!!!!
