BOB AND CAMILLE, Wondering if they can sign up for a second winter
NINETEEN YEARS AGO - COLORADO, 1987
Bob holds his firstborn daughter, Emily with obvious pride. There are more photos of a very young Emily as well as photos of a very young Bob here: A Blast from the Past
On September 4th, Bob and Camille took the camera to the farm where Camille has been riding and captured this image of the dog Molly trying to lick Camille to death. More photos here: The Family Farm

Mahlon, Camille and Bob toast the kick off of the Bronco's first game of the season on September 10th. Click on the photo for a closer look.
And then it was down to the business of watching the game.
The view from Mahlon's wide screen was just like being there!
YOU MEET THE STRANGEST PEOPLE ON A BUS
On September 16, we joined Shirley for a bus ride and a walk up the creek path. See the whole story by clicking on Bus Tripping With Shirley.
The queen of Sharon's loft presided over the festivities with an eye out for bits of dropped cheese on September 17 at Sharon's Housewarming Party. Check it out!
It turned cold for a few days. Even the ducks refused to waddle away from us on September 20th. They'd look up at Sharon and Camille and calmly place their beaks back under their wings.
It's public art, alright. A pair of cow pokes. In bronze. Sighted in a parking lot on September 24th.
Here's that love of a man on his 48th birthday, September 25. For some reason, he keeps trying to tell me he's getting old!
Bob took these pictures of his garden at work on his birthday. With the shorter days, the greens are turning petite. They make a great baby-green salad. Bob has ordered seeds for a winter garden of baby greens and plans to thumb his nose at winter this year.
Amy and her good friend Mary Jo choreographed a half-time dance for a High School football game on September 28.
THE PEANUT GALLERY
While the dance troop queued up, Bob and Molly tried to behave like serious spectators.
And ended up losing it. They just can't help but laugh when they get together.
SCENES FROM A HIGH SCHOOL GAME.
Amy's team made so many touchdowns that the guy who had to run up and down the field with the victory flag nearly lost his pants. They started out low and just kept getting lower with every run. Meanwhile, the crowd enjoyed being out with their friends on the balmy Fall evening.
And then it was time for Jungle Express to perform their dance. It was incredibly energetic and flawlessly executed. We were very impressed!
On September 30th, we stepped out onto our street to find this scene. Apparently, the local Historical Society was putting on a reenactment of how things were in 1910. For more, take A Trip on the Way Back Machine.
LATER ON THAT DAY...
Good friends Sharyl and Rob came over for a drink, a walk and dinner to celebrate Rob's birthday two days earlier.
A SPECTACULAR MONTH
We'd been wondering where those Blue Sky Days were hiding and then September happened... That's when we remembered why Autumn was always our favorite time of year. What's not to like about blue skies, warm sun, golden colors and refreshingly cool breezes? By the end of the month, we had quite a collection of pictures of trees and flowers which we posted here: Impossibly Blue Skies
