    Jeff,

    If we finish off all the ice cream at Country Maid, I'll try to work up a demo on how to track, kill, and field dress a mousse. The chocolate ones are my favorite.

    Looking about this Friday morning I would say this weekend is going to be it. The leaves are starting to drop from the big maple west of the house. In the body of the tree they are still abundantly there, but at the top it is rather sparse. I am familiar with that concept.

    Dorothy and Bethe, I do not know if you are planning to come. Both have expressed doubt for different reasons. Let me know if I should be here to expect you at any particular time.

    Do I understand that all others are coming Saturday rather than today Friday? I just don’t want you to show up wondering where I am.

    Since we have some arriving early Saturday and others arriving late, let me suggest that we have a 9 AM meeting of those here to plan our adventure. Lee suggested we meet again at Fishers restaurant in Peninsula at 1 PM. Those that want to arrive early can have lunch together. My guess is the restaurant will be packed with leaf lookers, so be early for lunch.

    In the afternoon if you want I can lead you around the Peninsula area mentioned earlier (swamp, river, gorge, locks, etc.). Later maybe 4-5 PM, I would like to take you to Sylvan pond, the reflective, usually windless pond, surrounded with leafy trees. It was spectacular a week ago. It has to be better Saturday. It is a half mile walk in though for those who find that a problem.

    That will mean we will be late for the 5 PM gathering at our house. If we are all together we can pick up pizza and salad on the way home. I don’t believe that you can get to Country Maid from there. The road is under destruction.

    As much as I want to be there, I'm not going to make it. We're leaving early Sunday for Costa Rica. I guess this fall is mostly a bust for me since I seem to be leaving during peak for most places. Oh well. I hope you guys have blast and get some great shots! I still have to get back over there sometime - does Country Maid stay open in the winter?

    I don't mind walking if necessary - one has to make sacrifices.

    I think that may prove more photographically interesting than Ohio ...

    Have a wonderful time. We will miss you. The welcome mat is always out here, but I can't say the same for Country Maid. They close up when business tapers off. They may have a sign in the window saying they are open to some hour, but the door is locked and Jeff's tongue is hanging out.

    The girls and I hiked to Sylvan pond and much further this AM. Even to my eyes the trees were amazing, reds, yellows, greens and bare. Even on a gray day the pond reflections were full of color and I only see 15% of it. Savannah, the eleven year old, disapperaed on the trail, which is unusual. While I was looking around where she had dropped her log, a hiker came along, asked if I was missing another one like Cindy? Savannah knew exactly where we were in the woods and had gone on to the pond. She was swimming and having a ball while I was looking for her body slumped over a bush in the woods a quarter mile a way. when I got there she was doing the back stroke, legs in the air, stick in the mouth. Who needs John to throw a stick? That's my girls.

    Throw a few extra sticks for the girls for me! Savannah is soo funny and smart. I'll think of you while I'm sipping something with a little umbrella in it.

    Doesn't look like I'm going to make it.... Dad is doing fine and there are no health issues in the way, BUT, he said he would like to go for a drive to look at the fall leaves in the northern part of PA where he used to stomp around. He's 86 and very hard to say no too! Sorry to miss you all.

    John Powers and Jeff Bannow,
    Jeff and I are exchanging prints. Is it ok if Jeff leaves his print with you? I'll be over that way for sure in the next month so I could pick it up and save Jeff the shipping... Let us know if you're ok with that, John? I work at a place that ships various prints 6 days a week so it's not problem for me to get you mine, Jeff.

    Again, sorry to miss everyone. Have fun. All the best. Shawn
