My jogging options & Pumpkins!

Lisa has been really busy with school so I have had some time to explore the area around me without having to step foot in the car. Fortunately we live about 0.5 miles from Lewis & Clark Law School so I jog there and then there is a path in the woods that connects the law school to Tryon Creek State Park. I did not know this and had to jog on the side of the road with no sidewalks going downhill and with the flow of traffic so I couldn't see the cars behind me. I just hoped that they were used to crazy people jogging down this tight road. Fortunately, they were... As I jogged on the street I looked over and noticed a path that I deduced connected the law school to the park. Fortunately I made it to the park with no problem. A coworker (Sally Wells) had recommended a book "The World Without Us" and I've made it about 1/2 way through, but I'm having a hard time with it, I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to finish it...

Halloween is almost upon us. We (Lisa) has decorated the front yard with a graveyard of skeletons and headstones. Visitors beware!!!! The weather here has been quite awesome lately and I verified that it is usually not sunny this late into the year. I guess we brought some FL sunshine with us and no one seems to care :)

We went to the pumpkin patch this weekend with Jeremy and Ellie. I think we got the leftovers, but it was a fun time. (We got caramel apples!!!) We found a pumkins that is probably 40lbs and it was only $9. In Tally that would have been $40 Jeremy and Ellie climbed the pyramid of hay and Jeremy tried to slide down it, but the hay didn't give and he ended up bumping and rolling his way down. We also went on a hayride, which is something we used to do for my birthday in Fowlstown. A good time was had by all.

Jeremy bet us that he could shoot a pumpkin into a hole about 100 yards away and Lisa and I took the bet. Here is video documenting the challenge.
