Where Did Autumn Go? - Project 365: Day 18

Seriously...what happened? We were wearing shorts, switched to jeans this week, and now it's going to be cold enough to snow tonight! What the heck?

Our poor worm farm hasn't been winterized yet (because it's the beginning of flippin' October!) and there's no room in the shed for it yet. I'm afraid for the few poor critters that are left. ('course, their buddies were sold off as bait to fishermen, so maybe they like their chances in the black worm farm tote. ;)) CS Dad swears there's enough heat in their compost to keep them safe and they are sheltered well under the trees in the front of the house, so we'll keep the worms in our prayers tonight. ;)

I was going out to move them closer to the house and snapped off a handful of pictures when I got a message I've never seen before on my camera - "Memory Card Full". :o Wow. Guess it's time to back up the 2 gig card full of September pix to CS Dad's portable harddrive tonight!

We're off to the Bloomsburg Fair tomorrow, so expect a super-photo-laden-trip-report come Sunday morning after we recover from 20 different foods on a stick and deep-fried hunks of cheese. =D

Notes for the weekend: This is the final weekend of Read Banned Books Week. If you do nothing else this weekend due to the chilly weather, take a minute to peruse the list at the ALA's website: Read Banned Books Week, and choose at least one book to read with or without your kids and celebrate the freedom that you have every day to read whatever you want without restriction - no matter what any well-intentioned group has tried to do to remove that book from your library or your child's school library to 'protect' you or them from it. ;) I mean, really? 'Where The Wild Things Are'? 'Fahrenheit 451'?!?! Does no one see the irony there?!

A final thought from Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas: "Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us."

Can't wait for the fair photos! Hope the worms make it. =D

I'll try to read a banned book this weekend, but I'm not promising anything.
