With the past 2+ days of rain, light or otherwise, the smoke is gone from our clean air. Of the the rain will now take over for a while and we expect an entire week of rain, beginning tomorrow. I will search diligently for any window of opportunity for a ride.

Got a coupe of photos from yesterday and today.

Closer view…

I prefer the somewhat understated decorations such as the one above. Then there are the overachievers…

I may get a few more on a ride or two, but I am not feeling quite the draw to them this year. I might just wait for the November challenge(s) ;’-). I have updated my blog from our recent trips… https://adventureswithnancyg.blogspot.com/ … and I have posted on fb coffeeneuring page. That is about enough for a while for me, but will keep on riding ;’-). When I can.

    Good Work! You found the places with a skeleton crew! 🙂

    Somewhere I heard 10 billion dollars will be spent on Halloweens this year. Unbelievable!!
    I think you found where a good part of it went.
    Smoke, then rain, but at least clear air — monster winds here — tough going into them, but sure is a nice ride back!

      It’s interesting to see how much $$$ is being spent this year. I actually feel I am seeing less stuff out this year, but that could be me. I seem to have less interest in finding or even looking at the lawn stuff. Much of it is so cheesy — like the blow up things and the rope “cobwebs” that are to indicate the gossamer webs of spiders. Maybe I am just becoming a cranky old lady!

      It is soooooo good to have our clean air again. Rain feels good too ;’-)

    Some over the top Halloween decorations there! Here I have a hard time finding a single carved pumpkins. Thanks for your blog line – looks like you have had some nice times with family and grands.

      I would rather we had the scenes that much of the mid west seems to have — stands with pumpkins, hay bales and gourds valuing the color and produce of the fall ;’-). As you can see by my reply to Rich, Halloweenie stuff is beginning to leave me with less than enthusiasm. I think it is because I have had a bad month, and not that great of a year 🥴.

      So good to have you back here though 🤗😉😊.
