Fall Outdoor Work

October is always a hard-working month for us. Last Sunday the Grand Rapids Press confirmed that raking is good exercise.  Duuhhh. We love trees and they number more than one hundred on the 2 properties we rake (not counting the woodlots). Rain has complicated things this year. Why not get a leaf blower? That would make about as much sense as hiring someone to work out for us at the club---though I must admit that a leaf blower is not necessarily for the faint of heart, especially if the ears are not covered.

Last Sunday we went up to Leelanau County for business and pleasure. We were surprised by the wonderful color still remaining in the Michigan woods. We had 3 good hikes. Here are a couple of pics of John.
