The calendar says it is fall and although the temperatures outside have not indicated such, there are a few other things that let us know fall is here.
We live in an area loaded with mature pecan trees. When October hits, the pecans start to drop from the trees. Don't look up, you might just get hit in the head with a pecan, especially on a windy day! This must be a particularly good year for pecans because they are everywhere and they are huge! Every green space is full of squirrels and scavengers hunting for pecans. People are busy hauling off sacks full of pecans everywhere you look. A couple of nights ago TJ and I took, Sadie aka Superdog, for a walk. It had been a very windy day! As we went down the path in the green space near our house we noticed that there were pecans everywhere.....! We pulled out the plastic bag, that was meant for another purpose, and just picked up the pecans on and next to the path. We never even had to get off the path and this was our haul! Can you say pecan pie?
