It is imperative to discuss this small issue before sharing anything further. It is sad some can be so mistaken, unenlightened even. THIS is NOT Winter.
By the way of proof I offer these facts: 1. The calendar! It is OCTOBER. October is fall. Have you never heard of Oktoberfest??? 2. Yes, I do see the snow...but have you noticed the leaves ON TOP OF THE SNOW? It is my contention if the leaves are on top of the snow - they are still falling and it is fall. If the leaves are UNDER the snow, I will admit winter is here....but not one single, solitary minute sooner.

With that settled, let's move on....Dad's OT came again today. The attitude WAS different. I think she'll always check charts before offering opinions in the future. I hope. In any event, she was much more agreeable and I was not on edge. Dad enjoyed the visit. She told me she believes our home is the best place for Dad to be and she just worries I am going to throw my back out.
Stacia and I took Millie out for a nice fall romp in the snow. She LOVES it.
