I had a phone call this morning from Governor Christie’s (For those who don’t know, he’s the governor of New Jersey) campaign office. They wanted to thank me for my service as a volunteer firefighter.
They asked for me by name. We’ve had the same phone number since 2007. Those two things make me believe they weren’t looking for someone else.
It’s just so weird. I cannot figure out why they would think I’m a volunteer firefighter. I wish I would’ve asked, but I was so caught off guard. All I said was, “thank you.” Ha!
In other news, I’ve decided to participate in Bastet’s Pixelventures over at WDBWP again this week. I know I promised some real content, such as Alaska and Camping posts, but this is better than nothing, right? You all enjoy looking at photos, right?
Well, I like sharing them. So, you’ll just have to deal with it.
This week’s prompt is Autumn. Bastet wants to know what autumn looks like where I’m from (or where you’re from if you want to participate, too!). Right now, in Jersey, autumn looks like late summer. The flowers are still blooming. The trees are still green. The sun still rises before 7am. Soon, though, the trees will start to change color and it will be time for pumpkin picking and Halloween decorating.
My favorite part of the season is definitely the leaves changing. I love fall colors, and it’s just so mesmerizing to see them en masse in nature. I took this photo last year in mid-October. Gah, I always forget how much I love Jersey in October!
So… what does autumn look like where you live? What’s your favorite part of autumn? Do you secretly hate this season? I want to know!
