"Le pant, le pant !!!..."

That's what I hear Pepe LePew saying from an old cartoon, and my October continues to be a strong flowing river of activity that leaves me saying the same thing. Gorgeous fall weather here in the Carolinas, eh? The colors in the mountains are vibrant and widespread, and enough staggering to keep the color machine going longer.

Last weekend was my last official show for 2008 with ye ole Ugly Boy Flutes, and in a former stomping ground of mine, Tryon, NC. The economic sourness is evident in the world of buyers, but it was a successful showing nonetheless...too, I had the unexpected pleasure of getting first place for my booth and wares.

It was especially good to see family and friends...above is a most charming and dear friend, Mrs. Elizabeth Landrum, who was out cutting a rug in front of the music stage just prior to this photo. That's my sister Beth in the background, El Presidente of the Tryon Rotary this year, and to the right Elizabeth's daughter Rita. A good time was had by all.

I'm back in the saddle at News 14 for a trio of evening shifts for the Charlotte market this week... had to blow the cobwebs out of my head Monday afternoon, so I was thankful for the quiet weather as I remembered (or not!) which buttons to press and how to do this, that, and the other. I've had my energies focused in areas far different from my former weather shift work the past few weeks, hence the modest challenges.

It took me a bit to figure out how to get them routed, but I enjoyed being able to put up some of my fall leaf shots on-air and use them in my weather segments. Always good to remember that not everyone can get out and about...there are always viewers in hospital rooms, nursing homes, or simply home-bound folks who appreciate the beauty being brought to them.

Finally have a little time this morning to clean and reorganize things...well, truth be told, you really can't 'reorganize' something that was never 'organized' to begin with...so I have much work cut out for me in that department. Since I keep putting that task off, I figured I'd better work on my procrastination while I'm at it, which I think I'll do...uh...tomorrow.

You know what they say about procastination Bob, "Hard work often pays off after time, but procrastination always pays off now".
