Has Nifty ever been to the Lexington Concord battlefield? or Newport RI? I would be happy to be his tour guide


PM me your address Jeff and I'll send Nifty out to you...
Hopefully before the weather gets into winter~!

So Retired Nifty decided to go down to San Rafael and see what a PorchFest is all about. A warm Sunday afternoon, musical groups playing on porches, food trucks and shady streets. What's not to like?

They weren't all on porches, but lets not get picky. Don't ya think the flowers on each side of the amplifier were a nice touch? It was good music and fun.

My favorite group of the afternoon. Walt The Dog. They played some very fine Blues.

You could get up close and personal with many of these musicians.

It's a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Porchfests are held all over and if there's one near you, I'm certain you'll find it enjoyable.

Took Retired Nifty (RN) out for a walk this morning in search of Fall colors. It's a bit early for serious color in the vineyards, but we did find some trees at the Valley of the Moon winery. As you can see from the second photograph, the fruit hasn't been picked.

Unless you enjoy itching, you do not want to touch this Fall color.

It's too hazy and too early for any decent vineyard color shots, but it was good to get out and take a short hike this morning.

It should be getting close to crush season. I have some fond memories of Sonoma! Thank you so much for sharing the beauty of the region. :-)

The crush has begun. One Sonoma winery told me this past Tuesday that they had picked about 30% of their crop. The weekend traffic is nuts this time of year, especially this weekend with 5,000 cyclists in town for the Gran Fondo and others come for Harvest Festival at the fairgrounds. I was going to have some breakfast my favorite little French Bakery in Glen Ellen this morning, but the line to get in was completely around the building.

Retired Nifty was drinking his coffee and eating some toast this morning and looking out the kitchen window. He observed Bad Bucky was back for rutting season. Bad Bucky was sniffing around poor innocent Jane Doe who was feasting on acorns. (sorry! I couldn't help myself this morning. :oops: :-D )

Here he is thinking she won't notice if he looks the other way.

IMAGE: https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-9946nPz/0/0389917c/XL/i-9946nPz-XL.jpg

But he is Bad Bucky and he just has to look...

IMAGE: https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-5sXw7dt/0/73c6feba/XL/i-5sXw7dt-XL.jpg

...and sniff.

They circled around the tree a couple of times and then the chase was on.

The images were taken through a double pane glass door in high contrast lighting.

Hope you enjoyed our little episode of Bad Bucky. Bucky comes around every year because we have three doe that make the thick brush in back their home. We have oak trees with lots of acorns, and the deer gather here for Fall feeding. Bucky's visits generally result in at least one fawn in the Spring. One Spring we saw four fawns, but I think Bucky had help that prior Fall.
