Glue Pen

I have been doing 
some paper-crafting
and needed glue
that would go into a tight spot
and picked this up
at Walmart

this is the greatest product!
The tip really
helps get into those
spots or for touch ups

I have not been asked 
nor have I received any compensation
for this post

A Fall Walk

One of
my favorite places
is a local park

called James Ranch

many of the flowers
are still blooming
but this week it 
is suppose to frost

These are called blueberry lilies

idk what these are called
but they look like a cross
between corn stalks
and cat tails

 Behind the house 
is a pond and river

there was a lone goose

the bike path

a quiet place

 path back to the house
