Cue the sound of crickets chirping ....

I know, I know. It's been pretty slow here at Harford Road Hon. We're still up and operating, but there's been a lot going on to keep us away from the blog. Pooky here was a little under the weather for a while and not doing much blogging. Other contributers have also had health issues, house issues, and you name it.

Then there's Fantasy Football to keep up with, and well, let's just say that picking Tom Brady was really a stroke of genius on my part, if I do say so. Watch out Westfieldia!

Now the weather has turned and it's time for the switch of the clothes for those of us with no closet space. Um, would that be all of Hamilton? What did we do before those big plastic storage boxes? And how did that old down comforter get so smelly closed up in storage? Time to go shopping ....

Halloween is tomorrow, and there have been costumes to assemble and parties to attend. Delicious food and drink, albeit disgustingly named. (I believe the wine was "Troll Vomit"?)

City elections are coming up soon, and there's a rumor that the WNIA may also have an election at the next meeting, November 6.

And how have you been spending these glorious fall days?

One thing I've noticed about Westfield this year is as soon as the temperature droped to 60 people started burning wood fires. It's great when my wife and I take our evening walk with our daughter and every block has that wonderfull smell of a wood fireplace. (our house does not have a fireplace :(. )
The bad part of this Fall is that the drought has really made the leaves less then spectacular. All the reds and yellows appear to be gone this year and more shades of brown then anything else.

Oh I agree that one of the wonderful smells of Autumn is the smell of a wood fire. We bought one of those electric heaters that looks like a wood burning stove. It warms up the room great, but it just isn't the same without the smell!
