What lovely thoughts Shanna!!!
I could use some prayers, my DH is going to surgery for an Hip replacement, Nov the 5. We have Been married many many years,I was 20 and he was 23 years old and this will be the first time that he is going to an hospital,although that he worry about it, is relieved about the operation, because lately his pain is immense.

Bravo, klondike. I can hardly believe that all of these posts are for real, and yet I know they must be. It's wonderful to read descriptions of home soil seen through the eyes of travelers! Sometimes I think we look at our travel destinations with different eyes than we do the rest of the year. So here goes.

I commute to my teaching job by driving across the Atchafalaya Swamp Causeway and then through the sugarcane fields. The cane-picking tractors are like prehistoric creatures, and the white egrets flock around to see what they can scrounge from the black soil. In the morning fog, the cane trucks toddle around, and (unless you happen to be behind them on the narrow roads) their dark rickety frames look pretty against the horizon. There are a couple of tiny bayous to cross, and then, voila, we're in James Lee Burke country. This is the best I can do on such short notice. J.

Kismet - I?m sure you and DH will face this with courage. A friend of mine had both hips replaced and while the recovery was long, he said it was like paradise to sleep through the night without pain. What I remember most is the utter calm I could see in his face. November 5 will be day of good fortune for you.

What a delight to come home after several days with our children and grandchildren and find these beautiful word pictures of autumn!

Here in west central Alabama the leaves of our big oak trees are falling, falling, falling, and this year's acorn crop must be the biggest on record. Walking on the driveway is like stepping on ball bearings, and late afternoons on the patio are an adventure--when we hear the squirrels high in the trees, we know it's time to duck for cover. Here comes a fusilade of tiny bombs!

We've had one direct hit in John's wine glass, but this is a minor inconvenienc. It's a wonderful, beautiful fall.

kismetchimera, our thoughts are with you and your husband. I'm sure the surgery will be successful.

It has been a gorgeous weekend in Brewster on Cape Cod. Yesterday we walked out on the tidal flats under a clear blue sky, alternating between sand flats and fingers of water quite a way out into the bay. As the fingers of water got thicker and the patches of sand got smaller, we turned and came back in with the tide.

Thank you very much Shanna and Byrd for you thoughts and kind words. I feel much better already...
The surgery is planned for tomorrow morning at 7:30, is going to be hard for awhile for my DH, but it cant be worse than is now, the poor man is in constant pain .
