Cornstalks to celebrate Halloween

We had been in the Dearborn house a year and a half, and  this particular fall in Michigan was beautiful, with cool and crisp air scented by autumn leaves. It is still our favorite time and favorite place and the only thing we miss living in Florida.

 Lyn found the dried cornstalks at the nearby fruit market, and they were the perfect accent for the perfect time in the perfect place for us.

 

Dave and Barney: look closely to see his "thumb"

Dave had just started to work as a consultant and travel out of the office on business. For the first time ever, we traveled together to visit Dave's customer in Mansfield, Ohio and returned on the evening of Halloween just in time to pass out candy.

Lyn got a day to herself in Mansfield, and visited the Johnny Appleseed monument and nearby aviary. It set the pattern for us that we still follow to this day. Drive on a business trip, split up during the day, then come together and take 'the long way' home.

Lyn and Barney, enjoying a cool and crisp October evening

We were taking pictures, and hit upon the idea of having Barney in them. Of course, he was an inside-only cat and usually petrified to be outside.

Of course, his nose worked overtime during the ten or so minutes we sat for these pictures.

We were so young and just learning how to really live life to its fullest.

Dave going to TOPS as "Temptation"

This is the year that both of us belonged to TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) and Lyn was our chapter's leader. For Halloween, we both dressed in costume: Lyn as 'honesty' and Dave as 'temptation'.
