AUTUMN AT THE BLACKSTONE – GARRY ARMSTRONG

I wasn’t feeling well, but Marilyn was insistent. “Autumn is short,” she pointed out and urged me to take a couple of hours and come out. Autumn is a flash of color and then, it’s gone.

After all, tomorrow, it might rain. I agreed.

We both took pictures — enough to last a while. Autumn will be longer on Serendipity than this brief season will be in New England.

As a reporter for Channel 7 in Boston for 31 years, I was witness to most of the major events affecting the region. I met a lot of people ... politicians, actors, moguls, criminals and many regular folks caught up in extraordinary situations. Sometimes, I write about the people I've met and places I've been. Sometimes, I write about life, my family, my dogs and me. Or what might otherwise be called Life.

    1. I think was probably the best day of the season. I notice the leaves in my woods are all falling now. I suspected this was going to be a short season. It came so late … and until today, it was warm. I think the cold weather came too late … but at least we got a little bit of it.

    2. Slmret, it was perfect timing for the shoot. Yes, I was a reluctant shootist. I wasn’t feeling well and am still “under the weather” but I’m so happy we got out that afternoon. It was glorious!!

    1. Mrs. Swiss, it is chilly, gray and overecast right now. The leaves are falling everywhere. I’m glad we got out when we did for this photo shoot. Kudos to **Marilyn**.

  1. Beautiful pictures! We have trees that are turning, some already bare and many still green here in my woods. of course the rain will probably take all those that were turning. It has been a strange autumn it felt like I was back in Alabama instead of North Eastern Michigan.

    1. That one day — the day before yesterday — was I think as good as it got and it was only like that for that single afternoon. This is very much untypical of New England autumns. The leaves are falling fast in our woods. It was a 1-week autumn. I hoped we might get at least one more week. It has been a very strange year for weather. The earth is fighting back.

        1. Rebel, it’s the bug that never dies. It’s now Tuesday, just past noon and we’re still dragging. A little better than yesterday…… that’s something, eh?

          1. We tried everything to get rid of it. Nothing seemed to work until my husband read about leaving minced garlic in a glass, in the open air for ten minutes.
            After the ten minutes are up, add enough water to be able to swallow it. After a few days, it was gone. But still, it seems to come back every month or so.
            I really hope you beat it. So many people we work around have it too, six months later!

              1. Oh great! I am so tired of it. It depletes every ounce of energy I have. Thanks for letting me know. A guy at the hospital said something was going around the hospital but they weren’t supposed to tell anyone about it.

                1. I don’t even know what it is, but it sure is going around. Viruses like these spread like crazy and since they don’t kill anyone, they don’t bother to really analyze them. Now, if there was a DEATH toll, THEN they’d analyze it.

      1. “The River of No Return” …. I’m humming it now…. “There is a river….called the river of no return…Love is a traveller..on the river of no return….I left my heart…on the river…….and it never returned to meee….where the river..where the weeee….”

      1. Oh that’s early but about time in New England. I remember those nippy mornings and nights where I also tried to push the limits to the max. You know that when you start putting the heat on it’s for months.
