Not your typical hellcat biker chic and
Li'l Deb would say "that's not a bad thing!"

The Bitter Sweet Season

On the homefront I like to putter out of doors; tending to the perennials and the moss garden, reading, or enjoying a day at the beach or Pow Wow, alone or with the best of company (who never complain if I bring along some knitting). It's all warm fuzzies with lots of fresh air and sun.

...but the signs that Old Man Winter is approaching are all around; leaves have reached peak color, daylight hours are shorter, nights are chilly. I really should get out the cashmere and knit some warm wear just for me. I know only three people (men) who look forward to the shorter days and colder nights. CRAZY! I know. Soon any biker festivity will be off road, confined to a clubhouse, function hall, or a good bar ;o).

Sadly, I missed the Harvest Moon Festival last weekend at the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum and the Fire & Iron Motorcycle Club rescheduled the Station 102's Fall Foliage (Benefit) Ride for today until tomorrow.

Sunday's forecast is sun. Let us hope so, as the rain has been relentless. I almost feel sorry for the leaf peepers. They travel world wide to ooh-awe over New England's Fall foliage and then it rains, it always does, but they wait for the sun. I have always wondered why when the sun is out they (leaf peepers) do not remove their sun glasses. They are denying themselves the natural splendor for which they came to see.   Do they realize that? 

With nice weather in the forecast, check out Warner's Fall Festival and Keene's Pumpkin Festival. Both festivals evoke community spirit and a lot of fun for all. October 10th is the grand opening of the Indian Museum Exhibit in the new Museum of Springfield in Springfield, MA. Vote for your favorite vintage or classic auto or motorcycle.

The Winnipesaukee Scenic Rail provides transportation into and out of Weirs Beach " for the Annual Laconia Bike Week event but you can also step aboard the Hobo or Winnipesaukee Rail Road for a Fall Foliage Tour of New England by train.

Ya just never know what purty thangs can be found at a pit stop ....

...Happy trails.....

P.S. I think we set our clocks back November 1. We "fall back" at 2 a.m. giving Trick or Treaters an extra hour of daylight on All Hallow's Eve.
