Tis Autumn!!!


FALLING LEAVES
Grandpa Jones

Falling leaves that lie scattered on the ground,
The birds and flowers that were here cannot be found.
All the friends that he once knew are not around.
They're all scattered like the leaves upon the ground.

Some folks drift along through life and never thrill,
To the feeling that a good deed brings until,
It's too late and they are ready to lie down,
There beneath the leaves that's scattered on the ground.

Lord, let my eyes see every need of every man,
Make me stop and always lend a helping hand,
Then when I'm laid beneath that little grassy mound,
There'll be more friends around than leaves upon the ground.

To your grave there's no use taking any gold,
You cannot use it when it's time for hands to fold,
When you leave this earth for a better home someday,
The only thing you'll take is what you gave away.

Re: Tis Autumn!!!


 Though Today is the first Day of Autumn, it will not be here till midday sometime, officially. Rectum it is time for those with money for cruises and groceries and such to get their bales of hay for the yard decorating. I also like to get stalks of sugar cane and sometimes have the gumption to make a shoddy scarecrow to put in the display. Time fer the pumpkins to start showing up. Heck, I never got around to eating any fresh peaches, watermelon or cantaloupe or blueberries. LL hogged all the raspberries.

 Time to dig out the Maggie Homemade Punkins and other goodies kind Ladies like we have here have sent. 2 or 3 of my fave light up ceramic jackolaterns have gotten broken so may be sparce on that sort of thing this year.

 Tis also time for the County Fair at the end of the month. Time also to order your Holiday Pecans and dig up the address for ordering your fruitcake! Eggnog should start showing up in the stores about midway through October.

Re: Tis Autumn!!!


Pickin Time!

I got cotton in the bottom land
It's up and growin' and I got a good stand
My good wife and them kids of mine
Gonna get new shoes, come Pickin' Time
Get new shoes come Pickin' Time.

Ev'ry night when I go to bed
I thank the Lord that my kids are fed
They live on beans eight days and nine
But I get 'em fat come Pickin' Time
Get 'em fat come come Pickin' Time.

The corn is yellow and the beans are high
The sun is hot in the summer sky
The work is hard til layin' by
Layin' by til Pickin' Time
Layin' by til Pickin' Time.

It's hard to see by the coal-oil light
And I turn it off purty early at night
'Cause a jug of coal-oil costs a dime
But I stay up late come Pickin' Time
Stay up late come Pickin' Time.

My old wagon barely gets me to town
I patched the wheels and I watered 'em down
Keep her in shape so she'll be fine
To haul my cotton come Pickin' Time
Haul my cotton come Pickin' Time.

Last Sunday mornin' when they passed the hat
It was still nearly empty back where I sat
But the preacher smiled and said that's fine
The Lord'll wait til Pickin' Time
The Lord'll wait til Pickin' Time.

Re: Tis Autumn!!!


Fall is in full swing, with coloured leaves raining down everywhere. The squirrels are in fact quite crazy, gathering nuts and running haphazardly across any highway, no matter how many cars race by. Among the many grey ones darting here and there was a black squirrel also gathering and trying to cross the highways today.
