  1. I like this time of year too. A surprise visit and gift from my daughter - small pkt of Candy Corn and I am transported.

    1. claggle -- yes, a visit from my daughter and a pkt if candy corn would transport me too. Didn't get children at my door on Halloween when I lived in KY -- lived to far out in the country I guess. But now I understand I will have them here in the apartment complex. Will be nice to see the costumed kids. thanks for stopping -- barbara

  3. My goodness, your two boys overtook your father in height, but he looks as if he doesn't mind at all.

    1. Rita -- Yes, the header and the first photo at the top of this post are from my Kentucky days. I took so many photos that never got published on a blog. I am going to include them once in a while even though I don't live in KY anymore. I now realize what a gold mine KY was for photographic experiences. My family photo is blurry but I liked it because my dad had his arms around my sons. Have a nice Halloween in your new home -- barbara

    I love your Kentucky photos, so rustic. Kentucky has so many vistas.

    1. Joanne -- Wish your brother a happy birthday. Thanks for the kind words about my KY photos, I really enjoyed getting out in areas around KY and taking photos and meeting all the folks I met along the way. I will be putting Ky photos on occasionally as the seasons pass. Thanks for stopping by Joanne -- barbara

    1. Michelle -- I do have quite a few KY photos that I will probably put on my blog as time passes. Ky sure has history and tradition that intrigues me. Looking for that in this area. -- thanks -- barbara

    1. Photos can bring back our past in so many ways. My dad was a good father and I feel fortunate that I can say this. The song -- yes, I think someone already wrote one :) -- thanks barbara

  9. Happy Halloween, Barbara! Loved the farm stand post -- we still have a few around here though I suspect that Farmer's Markets are taking over.

    1. Vicki -- Farmers markets are big -- maybe folks like the one stop shopping today. Farm stands are fun to stop at and where I was raised they were abundant. Not anymore -- now they are subdivisions. Happy Halloween to you -- barbara
