October full moon

This was last weekend - learning to ride without training wheels.
This weekend, as I write in fact, boards & cinder blocks are being made into jumping ramps out in the driveway.  (And yes, he does have his helmet on now).
How quickly they learn.

Full Moon Rising

Chilies to roast.  We're still hitting high 80s in the days & 60s at night.  Perfect for these poblanos.  I've got a steady stream of them coming in.

A little news from us:  Joe has taken a new job, beginning in December, teaching classes at a nearby technical college.  
He'll be the new director of the their land/forest/wildlife program.
