    Real nice looking helpers you got working the orchard with you.

    Is it me or do the apples seem to be a bit under sized?

    How many bushels did you pick? Whats the plan, hard cider?

    Wasn't that a .50 Gunny used, or was it a .308?

    Come on by! I'm in charge of "refreshments" for our NRA First Steps Pistol classes on Saturday, so I'll be bringing some appliciousness to the classroom. (It'll be my 1st class as an instructor, I'm hoping to make a good impression.)

    JAT40 -- EVERYTHING looks undersized when there's a Great Dane and a Spanish Mastiff there for comparison. I think GSDs look "fun sized" now. It's all in the perspective, maybe? Next trip, I'll grab my sister's chihuahua...the apples will look gargantuan! lol

    Thumbs up It's Fall



    It's Autumn or Fall -- methodologically!

    Meteorological Seasons are defined like this:

    Winter: December, January, February

    Spring: March, April, May

    Summer: June, July, August

    Fall: September, October, November

    See: National Weather Service Forecast Office - Philadelphia/Mount Holly - NOAA Weather Radio FAQ

    near the bottom of the FAQs

    What are the meteorological seasons, and how do they differ from “regular” winter, spring, summer, or autumn?



    The astronomical seasons that people are most familiar with begin and end on the solstices and equinoxes (which normally occur around Mar 21, June 21, Sept 22, and Dec 22). But, since the dates of the solstices and equinoxes vary slightly from year to year (because the earth takes about 365 1/4 days to go around the sun), meteorologists use whole months to define the “meteorological” seasons. The three normally coldest months in the Northern Hemisphere are December, January, and February, and are called “meteorological winter”. The three normally warmest months are June, July, and August, and are called “meteorological summer”. “Meteorological spring” includes the months of March, April, and May, and “meteorological autumn” includes the months of September, October, and November.

    Glad to hear you had a successful apple trip. I am waiting on picking my apples in my front yard until our first freeze. They get SO sweet after!!

    But, at little sour apple may be good for a pie or two!!!

    I am getting hungry at 12:30 in the AM!

    This oughtta be interesting.

    I have two questions.
    Did they have the last laugh?
    If so....WHY??

    Yes.

    Now I'm hungry.

    Well after wearing your sweatshirt concealment garment in the sunny 83 degree weather you had today in the Charlotte area you probally dropped a few pounds so you should have plenty of room for all those goodies you are going to make this week.
    To all you current and former military ... thank you for your service! Let no one forget that the sacrifices you have made allow us the freedoms we enjoy.

    Question

    I'm still waiting for the fell-out-of-the-tree story.

    So you "stayed mostly on the ground" but where is the "and now for the rest of the story."
