What is wrong with this picture? (And as long as I've got your attention...)

What is wrong with this picture?  

This is what we woke to this morning!  And, for the record, it was NOT our first snowfall of the season! The leaves haven't even turned from green to gold on our maple trees!

Our patio rose isn't done blossoming for the season!

Oh, well, whining about it isn't going to do anything.  It is supposed to be in the 50's by the weekend, so maybe there are a few beautiful fall days left in the forecast.

The weekend after our trip to NYC, we traveled with Beth and Gary to Valley City State University (their alma mater...and my mom's and grandmother's as well) to watch our nephew, J.D., play football.  J.D., who is the son of my brother, Al, is a Freshman at Valley City State.

That's J.D., the good looking one, out on the field (#43).  He is a linebacker and plays special teams, so we had many opportunities to cheer him on during the game.  We drove back to the lake after the game, stopping in Fargo to have dinner with our Fargo siblings and their spouses.  It was a fun day! Being able to spend more time with family is one of the great perks of retirement.

With the inevitable turning of the seasons, Paul and I have been having discussions about our exercise (or lack thereof) program.  We do ride our bikes and walk, but that is when the weather is nice and when we are on a camping trip.

I realized prayer wasn't going to quite take care of it for me.

So, with the realization I will shortly turn into something I don't want to picture,

I agreed with Paul to make the commitment to (re)join the community fitness center.

So, now every other day I find myself doing some strength training.

And working on daily aerobic exercise.

I am certain I will soon see the results of our new regimen.

Well, back to my lists.

I may be retired, but I still have an agenda.

Just ask Paul.

He can tell you all about it!

Before the wild turkeys made a mess out of the yard!

Okay, when I heard you guys were getting snow...I was picturing the normal "1st October Snow" (which occurs at Halloween, by the way) where there's a little dust on the roofs, trees, and it melts by the end of the day.

That is a December-worthy snow fall! How depressing!!
