Critters on First Day of Autumn

 Happy first day of autumn! Let's bring in some critters for


and I'm posting to City Daily Photo

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."

 Nikola Tesla

and also,

"The energy of the mind is the essence of life."


Mindset is Everything!

"Outside, it was the perfect air temperature, not too cool and not too warm. It was perfectly still.
The sky was a hazy shade of white peculiar to autumn mornings, and especially this first day of autumn."
 Donna Tartt and Me

"Good morning, Goose!" said the one goose to the other.

And they went on with their day, not even noticing me. 

Is that a hat on your head?

Hello Horsey!

Northfield Minnesota Jessie James Day!

"The people who have closed their eyes and ears to the new opportunity are the people who are actually using their brain very little."
Anuj Jasani

"Use what you have, use what the world gives you. Use the first day of fall: bright flame before winter's deadness; harvest; orange, gold, amber; cool nights and the smell of fire."

Live from the best ever Minnesota Rennaissance Festival!

From the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden outside The Walker Art Museum

"I would rather sit on/with a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion," Henry David Thoreau

The leaves as they spark into wild color just before they die are the world's oldest performance art, and everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white silence of winter."

Shauna Niequist

Artemis really knows how to live each and every day!

"Explore, Experience, then push beyond."
Aaron Lauritsen

Thanks for stopping in and gifting me with your thoughts.
Take good care of you and enjoy this first day of autumn.

Critters in Scandia

 Welcome to my post for


and to City Daily Photo

Getting to know you, bark! Bark!


and kisses!

Yesterday was devoted to romping, roaring, taco-ing and critter hunting at Scandia-Marines Lions 48th Annual Taco Daze event.

Such grace, devotion, determination and hard work for these young adults and their horses.

Hanging with Gnomies!

"We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person."

W. Somerset Maugham

"The secret to life is meaningless unless you discover it yourself."

Such a glorious day to be alive and among the vitality, artsy nature of others and their traditions. #BeAdventurous 

"Every animal is a tradition, and together they are a vast part of our heritage as human beings. No animal completely lacks humanity, yet no person is ever completely human."

Boria Sax

"Excess on occasion is exhilarating. It prevents moderations from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit."

W. Somerset Maugham

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.

Izaak Walton 

It wouldn't be as great of an event, if it weren't for the many actually thousands and thousands of folks bringing their wit, silliness, and vintage and unusual vehicles of all makes and models to these town gatherings.

"You can do anything in this world if you're prepared to take the consequences."

W. Somerset Maugham

May there be a special Tomte in everyone's lives.

(They're usually hiding)

Sweet little Tomte and all the people who "patter about" your lives, at whatever hour of the day to enrich people's lives and "check on everyone's welfare.

Thank you for stopping by and your wonderful comments that always brighten my day.

Take good care of you and of course your Tomte!
