Foiled Foliage

-view from my brother's backyard in Connecticut
I just returned from visiting my younger brother in Connecticut for a long weekend, where I found the true meaning of brown out. Ah, there is nothing like hiking 180 miles northeast and missing the New England fall foliage by less than a week. When I caught my brother scrounging around for snow shovels in preparation for a long winter, I realized autumn sightseeing was passe.
The weather and company, however, proved quite amicable. Even though the chlorophyll had been extracted from the leaves, we had ample time to enjoy the great outdoors by playing flag football and whiffle ball until our hearts content.
Although I missed my wife, it felt relaxing to get away for awhile. I returned to a broken vacuum cleaner, broken wall clock, a computer infected by a Trojan virus, 106 emails to answer, 3 Ebay sales to ship, and my own leaves to rake. Foiled again!

I was kinda liking the idea of chloroform trees. I was imagining trees with birds and squirrels just littered around on the ground hahahaha.

Chloroform trees might be great for squirrels and such but what about the gardeners?.

Sorry you missed the colors, glad you had a good time. Kind of strange how it feels to get away without your partner in crime...fun and a little lonely. Kinda like pulling your first tooth a little exciting then a little painful and strange then all well when it grows back in. Happy your back at home with your family. :)
