Years ago, Todd had a meeting in Rhode Island about mid Sept. . the leaves were just starting to turn. . so I made him stop the rent car and let me get out to pick a bright red leaf. . I had never seen a BRIGHT red leaf before and I brought it home to show the kids. .we hicks don't get to see leaves like the above very often. . if ever. . you brought back memories today. . Oh well, West Texas has other virtues. . rows and rows of cotton, gorgeous sunsets and great winters:). . .thanks for sharing the photos!
