SWISH! It's gone.

Well, I'll be darned.  There went October.  Just like that.  ZOOM!  SWISH!    It went faster than that first bag of Halloween candy you bought a few weeks before Halloween.

October brought us cold and then back to hot and finished with that dang Frankenstorm in the northeast.  Ugh.  Even Evil Twin is feeling sad for those that have experienced loss due to that monstrous beast.

I ran a 10-mile race and won 1st place in my age group.  Ahem.  I have to say that most of the fast people in my age group did not show up for the race.

 Scarecrow does a nice job showing off my medal!

 If you squint, you can see it says 1ST PLACE!

October was a great month for reading blog posts, especially if you like looking at photos.  There was an awesome photo meme (see Ziva's sidebar) that took place on days 1 - 30.  Oreo Cat and Evil Twin kept begging me to participate.  I took some photos and I've finally relented and decided to post some of our favorites:

VIBRATE:    I wish I could blame the cat for this blurry sunset:

KAFKAESQUE and STALKER:  This guy is hopelessly hanging around teasing the cat.

SHINY:  Cat must think this is a snake, a sparkly slithering snake, because every time I put it on the end table, he knocks it off and bats it around for awhile.

CALM and RULES:  This is Cat's favorite because he thinks he reigns over us.  I like it because it reflects one of the few quiet moments we get around here.

I hope October treated you well.  Bring on November.  Maybe I'll post again before the month is over.
