I missed fall when I lived in Ecuador.
I enjoyed fall all of the years that I was teaching.
But, I adore fall now, and particularly beautiful fall Saturdays spent with my Silver Fox. He’s such a fun travel companion. He’s not fond of traffic, but he keeps me laughing, and he’s like having a little bit of conscience sitting on my shoulder in restaurants. Mercy. He likes the air conditioner OFF. I like it on full blast. He’s a nature guy. I’m a unique things girl. We show each other sights and treasures we never would have found on our own.
Football games. Colored leaves. Mums. Pumpkins. Arts and crafts. Mountains. Crisp air. Bring it on.
Recently we made our way to Cullman to wander through the booths at the annual Oktoberfest. You’ve missed it for 2015, but put it on your calendar for next year. This website would be a great one to bookmark. They plan DAYS of activities. Not just a single Saturday. Take a look at some of the sights.
All of that wandering worked up our appetites. A good friend recommended Carlton’s Italian Restaurant on 3rd Avenue. It was wonderful. Beautifully decorated, scrumptious food, and a happy chat with the owner who is a retired veterinarian like my Silver Fox. I don’t believe you’ll be sorry if you decide to try it. Let’s see if I can tempt you.
