Fall Random Five

October already? My gosh... where did summer go?

I always thought my favorite season was spring but I've decided I like Fall the best. The air is cooler after a hot summer, there's color everywhere, the scent of cinnamon, pumpkin, apples and cider fill the senses. Oh yes, Fall is it!!

I was just remembering a trip our youngest daughter took me and Elbert on one year... to Vermont in the Fall and we stopped at this pumpkin patch. Memories are great things. I am glad I have pictures to help me recall some of the exciting things I have done in my life.

I am seeing a lot of goldenrod alongside the road these days. I've always loved the feathery blossoms of that plant. People say it gives you 'hay fever' but I was glad to read that ragweed is the culprit not this beautiful flower.

The birds are already hard at work picking seeds off this dried out sunflower. More power to them. They have to eat, too.

Kids can be sooooo cute. I don't know who this little fellow was but he sure made my day playing peek-a-boo with me at Hardees one day.


                                        Now, I get teased a lot about how I like my hotdogs!

Yep, I open the bun (warm, of course), spread on a little mustard, catsup and relish. Then I slather on a good dollop of mayonnaise. Yep, mayonnaise!!!! Add some chopped onion. Then I put the weiner on top so that it holds all that slippery stuff in place. And, yum, yum.

You all head on over to Nancy's Random Five and see what everyone else has posted. I had fun doing mine. I hope you had fun reading them.

  4. Oh am I the only one that wants a hotdog now. Nice pics. B

  5. My husband would approve of your hot dog! Your peek a boo friend is a little cutie pie! He looks like he is lots of fun! How quickly they grow up!

  6. Love everything about Autumn...colors,'s all good! However, mayo on a dog...well, I think I'll pass on that one! Mustard and kraut or a chili dog...sometimes just ketchup with onions and relish...but mayo??? Aloha and HAPPY OCTOBER!

  7. That Pumpkin Patch looks like it was a really fun place. Glad you have great memories of visiting it. The little boy was adorable that played peek-a-boo with you.
    I like my hot dogs with, bbq sauce and pickle relish. Not a lover of Mayo here.

  8. I love that first shot with the scarecrow. And the little blond guy is adorable! I love when kids are so natural and smiley.

  9. Cute little boy! Not sure about mayo on a dog, trying to wrap my taste buds around that, but probably not. LOL! Have a great weekend!

  11. That's how I put the ketchup and mustard on the kid's hot dogs too. Less messy.

  12. I think fall has always been my favorite season...just like the feel of it. And I love goldenrod, too.
