"When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween."

Trash pickup in our neighborhood is every Tuesday morning.
This cute little dachshund mix dog loves to run behind the
trash truck. When the truck stops, he stops and watches the
men empty the trash cans.
He waits until they're finished, then he follows them back down
Ah, the simple joys of being a dog!

Our rose bush always gets it's second wind
in late summer and early fall.
We decided a few weeks ago to try and grow some
sunflowers in our planters since we didn't get to plant
any at the beginning of the growing season. We found
some seeds and planted three or four. This one is the
biggest of the ones we planted, but I fear they're not
long for this world with a possible freeze in the forecast.
Our Jackamanii Clematis are pretty hardy as well. I hate to see
them go. Wish we could skip winter and go directly to spring!
Our Zinnias are showing some wear and tear, but are still pretty.
They can tolerate some frost, but not a freeze.

Because of my recent knee surgery, I've gotten
a late start on my Fall decorating. I told Terry
that the neighbors were making us look bad :0)
So, we got these beautiful Fall mums and a couple
of pumpkins. Can't believe Halloween is less than
two weeks away.

These are shots taken in and around the Tennessee Aquarium.
Looking down from inside the Ocean Journey building.
Tennessee River...Chattanooga riverfront.
This was the longest elevator I've ever ridden! I took this shot
halfway up the elevator ride looking down.
Riverfront in Chattanooga from outside the aquarium.
Waterfall inside the butterfly santuary.
Looking toward the Tennessee River from inside the
aquarium's Ocean Journey building.
