Autumn Photos for fun and Something Serious to Ponder- a great quote too!

Emily who owns Tasuti Zoo does really fun stuff and this is one of her many wallhangings that are sort of like a story quilt except they are not quilts......Color, whimsy and a ton of fun...she is my kind of gal!
 Sunflowers always look good in a fishes mouth don't they?
These are my two Grandchildren who are cousins...they are fond of each other
If you are old like me, you remember when pumpkins all looked the same and now....they are wrinkly and colorful and creepy and FUN!
 Look at the wonderful colors and shapes and light on these-would be great for a drawing class wouldn't they????
 This is my Grandson during his Wild Bill phase.....
 The block below was one of Wendy's from last year and I especially loved it because of the owl on the hat!

My husband is reading a book about a Lutheran Minister during WW11 that spent time in a concentration camp I think his name was Baunhaufer. He keeps reading excerpts to me and I asked him to write one of them down because I remember well, my Mother quoting this to me when I was in Jr. High .
"First the came for the Socialists and I did not speak out-because I was not a socialist
They came for the trade Unionists and I did not speak out-because I was not a Trade Unionist
and then
They came for the Jew's and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew
and then
They came for Me- and there was No one left to speak for me.
I think this is pretty profound
I hope I am the type of person who would speak up.
And a nice quote to think about before bed below........

" Anyone who thinks the art of conversation is dead ought to put a child to bed." Rober Gallagher
