Autumn in the Ozarks


I love Autumn in the Ozarks. If I had to pick my favorite time of year (yeah, you can insert “to drive an old car” here), it would have to be the fall, when the air is crisp, the leaves are changing, and the morning sunlight is beautiful! Springtime closely follows fall.

The first picture is actually from last week. It was the day that I had to take little Gypsi, my daughter’s little beagle, down to get fixed. It was her first “old truck” ride with me, and will hopefully be the first of many, as I am looking forward to taking her out to get her nose “turned on” to rabbits. Nothing like the sound of a beagle running rabbits.

The rest of the pictures are from the trip down to the Branson office, on Tuesday. It’s about 45 miles from the house, and I try and drive the stake truck, when it’s reasonable. I’d been wanting to get some “country road” pictures, with the stake truck, and this seemed to be the day! The picture, through the windshield, is just north of Show Me Rod & Custom, on Highway 65, heading south. It’s the first of the series of hills between there and Branson.

The leaf covered road pictures were all taken on the ride home, when I stopped at Show Me Rod & Custom, and used Doug & Lori’s driveway road as my setting. I like some of the pictures, but without a decent camera, it’s sometimes hard to get the perspective that your eyes see in the setting. You can only do so much with an iPhone!

Anyway, the point is, if you haven’t gotten the old car out in a while, get out and enjoy this beautiful time of the year! After all, The FUN is in the RUN!!!

The FUN is in the RUN!!!


John Hiatt’s lyrics kept playing in my head, “That’s my window on the world.”  (yes, the song was covered by Jimmy Buffett)
