A day later we had a little sleet!

Boy that’s a lot of leaves, get Ken a bigger rake! 😊

@summerfield Looks like the "mundane" challenge this time? OK...the only moment of rest that afternoon was in the moment I took this photo! (He ran out of bags!)

@louannwarren At least you didn't ask me why I wasn't out there helping him! So I like that..."Get Ken a bigger rake!" hahaha!

@Weezilou - isn't that always the case? there's always never enough bags!

The ongoing battle of man versus the trees. Love your processing of this shot! FAV! Tell him to take it easy. My chiropractor told me the two worse things for your back is shoveling and raking because of the twisting motion.

@skipt07 I'll mention that to him! I do hope to be back in California before the snow flies! (Out there, gardeners use blowers to clear the debris, but they make a dreadful sound and there's never a day they aren't working in one or another neighbor's yard!) (Is that a "First World Problem?")

Great shot of your handy husband.

Oh, he has a big job on his hands there! I admire his patience with the rake. I cannot abide those blowers - as you say, so noisy! However, I guess that depends on how many leaves you have to rake up. Mine here are manageable, so I rake, like Ken. I adore this shot. SO nicely done. That pop of pink in the foreground is lovely, and is that a moose antler I see at the foot of the tree?

How lovely to see Ken busy as usual! What a job he has with those huge trees in your garden! I really should have packed that moose antler in my suitcase - it’s the closest I will ever get to one! Lol! I have been tidying my garden too ready for winter. I must see if I can find some plants that have winter colour! Fav for Ken of course!

Ken and I are spending our time the same way these days!

Hi Ken, nice to see you looking so well and happy to do this necessary job around your home and how nice that Louise was able to come out and keep your company for a short while. Even if it was just to snap a pic or two. :) Take care!

Awesome shot

What a big job Ken has trying to keep up with those leaves :)
posted November 9th, 2017  
Neat fall shot including the leaves and Ken :)

Good capture of Ken

Ken know what to do and you know where to find him the nex couple of hours.
I would like to send more of those pic.`s but very old, dismoled, farmhouses are rare and difficult to find. the big flood in 1953 has destroyed many and the rebuilds are modern.

@pyrrhula Ferry, you're the most amazing wealth of information! I do recall learning about that flood (probably from YOU!), but I had no idea it destroyed so many buildings! What a tragedy that was, and coming so soon after the war years! Thank you for capturing the one you did as it was absolutely charming and beautifully weathered with texture!

@pamknowler haha...*trust me*, that moose antler in tight quarters would not be all that charming by the time you arrived home! It was pretty rank by the time we got it back from Cape Breton, in a trash bag in the back of the car! Perhaps we should photograph you holding it! We've never again seen an antler as big as this one, so it was a pretty amazing find! Thanks for the fave for Ken...he deserved it for a job well done!
posted November 9th, 2017  
@jamibann That indeed is a moose antler! We were walking through a boggy marsh when Ken's foot struck it and we pulled it up to see what he'd found! See above what I wrote to Pam... It's many years old now and has mellowed with age : )

All in a days work, huh. Great capture of Ken.

Great shot of Ken, good to see he's keeping out of mischief.

@pyrrhula Seeing the photos, I'm reminded that we did discuss that before! How terrible that would have been!!! Of all the countries, it's Holland that seems to have tamed the ocean the best; it was a hard lesson!
posted November 10th, 2017  
It looks like Ken will be kept busy for a while with all those leaves!
posted November 10th, 2017  
@Weezilou We did. The saddest part of it was the responsible political autorities know this could happen. They where warned for it .
posted November 10th, 2017  
That's one handsome man you have to rake your leaves!
posted November 12th, 2017  
And when you're done with that chore Mr. Man you can start dinner and wash the dishes. The vacuuming and dusting can wait until you've had your dinner. LOL!

@joysfocus This is what happens when I let friends come and visit and they assess the relationship between Ken and me! damn though, I know there's a grain of truth in it : ) I've been enabled!

@lynnz cute, Lynn ; ) You'd think I'd treat him better than that!
