Random Five Friday

Five random thoughts for October’s final Friday:

1.) An unknown (to me) waterfowl during a recent trip to the Outer Banks. What a life: hanging out at the beach all day.

2.) This month’s Harvest Moon a couple of weeks ago rising through the clouds:

And just three minutes later:

3.)  We discovered a couple of weeks ago that Miss Gypsy, unfortunately, had a bad case of fleas. How that happened, we aren’t sure, since she never goes out of the office.  Perhaps someone inadvertently brought them in to her?  We hadn’t seen her scratching, but she began acting strangely. So we took her to the vet, where she was given a flea treatment.  We sprayed the office that evening, so she had to “camp out” in another part of our shop, Motor Man’s “dyno” room. She was a little trouper through it all, though, and is all better now.

4.) Tomorrow, my friend, Donna, and I are planning to go to our local Farmers Market.  It should be fun to see all the little ones dressed in their costumes. Will Donna and I dress up?  Tune in next week to find out.

5.)  The deadline to enter the Corolla Wild Horse Fund calendar is Monday.  So I will, once again, be submitting photos.  And I’ll have a contest here on These Days, so my readers can select which photos they think might be featured in the calendar.  Three photos are allowed, and I’ve narrowed my choices down to….oh, about twenty.  Will this be one I choose to enter?  I’ll let you know next week.
