...and McKinley stood tall at the top of the hill and commanded the trees, he said, "Trees on my left I congratualte you for remaining still and good, and for losing not one single leaf to clutter the ground this fine day!"

And with a frown he turned to the trees on his right...

And said, "because you could not remain still and good, you shall be hewn down to make way for more parking spaces."

Ha! I noticed too when I saw it on the computer that the trees on the right are very, very naughty. While taking the picture all I noticed was the nicely uniform russet trees all around.

I happened to be passing through Canton on the centennial of McKinley's death a couple of years ago and was able to watch the funereal reenactment put on by the locals. Who'd have thought my afternoon in Canton would be so eventful? As obscure presidential funereal reenactments go, it was one of the best.

The leaves are just extraordinary!

Joe said...

Those colors are fabulous.

Dane said...

Joe & Karen - those reds are gorgeous, aren't they?

I add new blogs to the alpha lists once a week, but your site is immediately added to the custom google search engine.


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
