Apparently there was an award show last night that has some people upset. Maybe if you ignore it, it will become irrelevant?

Recent projections show Hurricane Jose making a button-hook turn and heading back south. Which makes me wonder, how many of you youngsters have ever seen a button hook?

Sunday foliage report

Upland trees starting to turn. Nowhere near "color" yet, though. Some of the ash trees are doing their "Turn one day, drop the next" routine.

Asters and goldenrod dominate the roadside. More of the really showy purples every day, with two tones.

No fresh roadkill to report.

Fog lifted a bit, got out on the bike and rode across town to the airport and back. Still damp enough that my glasses fogged up at a couple of traffic light stops.

Minor oddity -- while I was stopped out at the airport, a four-engine turbo-prop landed, identified by sound as a C-130. But it had a civilian paint job. Bit of Google shows that some civvy cargo carriers use them . . .

Air temperature 61 F, dew point 59, calm, predictable result. Intend to get out on the bike in an hour or so, if visibility improves.

With any number of politicians, you have to ask "Is he/she inside the tent pissing out, or outside the tent pissing in?"

At least three flat garter snakes on my route. Asphalt is *not* a good choice for your morning warm-up.

Not-roadkill, scared a chipmunk back into the weeds early in my ride. Cars go faster than me, rodent. Pay attention!

Red maples getting serious about this autumn thing out in the bog.

Got out on my bike, did not die.

Buzzed by a huge dragonfly on my afternoon walk. Glad that I was too big for lunch . . .

New porcupine corpse out in the bog, looked fairly fresh.

Winterberry berries turning red, some upland maples starting to change, more ferns going brown. Asters everywhere.

Breezy, warm, got out on the bike. Did not die.
