Having grown up on a farm in Central Illinois, I always think of harvesting the crops when Autumn comes around. Brother Dave sent me these pictures from the current harvest. The first is of his gigantic combine cutting the soybeans in the field, the second picture is of loading the semi with the beans that will go to the seed bean company. Some of you will remember this truck from a scene previously posted with a deer hanging out of the passenger window!
Since we don't really have changing leaves in Texas until probably later this month or into November, I did find this Sumac growing along a fence row. I believe this is also poisonous, so someone correct me if I'm wrong. I thought it very interesting.
What do you suppose is the story on this unusual find, stuck on a fence? Was someone trying to dry it out maybe? Any other ideas?

Got to have my morning coffee, so this is in the corner near my refrigerator. I'm the only one in the house who drinks coffee, so I have to make one cup at a time. The mug is from the Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco, the coffee is San Antonio Cafe.
There are actually two card games, somewhat related, that we really enjoy. One is Hand and Foot, the other is Canasta. This automatic shuffler (six decks) is great and saves on the knuckles for shuffling. The carrier is for two sections...one for the cards that are face down and one for the cards that are face up. Any other Canasta players out there?
