I was supposed to post something. And I completely forgot. We got into going to get the long-lost car key — not like just getting your key copied at the key store anymore — and then I stopped to take some pictures at the dam and continued on to the grocery.

Then I unpacked the groceries, started the chili, decided to process the pictures … and realized I never got around to posting anything at all.

So here are a few pictures from the Mumford dam in the middle of town. It’s pretty. It’s not the kind of bright and colorful you might expect. So many leaves fell off during the past three days of pounding rain — bright green leaves falling — so even trees which are changing are doing it in pastels. Not going to be a great autumn.

By the time the leaves change, there won’t be any left on the trees. Tonight, the weather is supposed to drop into the 40s — which is normal for this time of year. But after all this prolonged warm weather, it’s more than a dollar short and weeks rather than days late.

Meanwhile, the chili tastes weird because I put in the wrong beans. I don’t believe I did that.

I think I am mentally on “off.”

    1. It’s pretty. It looks best along the river, but most places are still pretty much green. And a LOT of leaves came down over the last week — and most of them were also green. There are naked trees on which the leaves never changed. Which is a bit strange.

  1. Kidney beans? I’ve used and mixed a few. Boston brown beans, Refried beans …
    Don’t like those hard little black beans in there tho.
    My secret ingredient is a pinch of brown sugar – just enough to take the edge off.
    Gonna have to shoot you now.


      1. Ah I see … yeah that probably wouldn’t work.
        I used to go the the markets and get all kinds of peppers too and put them in. But nobody would eat it after that. Except me.
