We've got a yard full of leaves with still more to fall in the many trees surrounding our house.  I did some raking and cleaning up of the flower gardens this morning but much more yet needs to be done.  Bit by bit.  Still have several of the vegetable garden beds to clean out.  My door-to-door work last week has set me back but hopefully will get caught up in the coming days.

The last two nights were fun for MB and I as we took a couple neighborhood girls to a play at Bowdoin College.  One of our Bowdoin student friends was in the play and we all were excited to see her in action.  Not disappointed one bit as the play took on the issue of exploitation of people in the US, China, and Bangladesh who work(ed) in the garment industry.

Then last night MB and I went to Camden to see singer/songwriter David Dodson's 25th annual show.  He brought along many of his friends to play with him including his wife Mary Kate Small who joined us during our recent Maine Drone Peace Walk.  Mary Kate is an excellent singer and one day brought David along and they both sang to the walkers during one of our breaks along a rural highway.  She also sang at our walk closing event in Augusta and then at BIW on the final day of the walk.  I called her the magician because she kept during a disappearing act throughout the walk but then would reappear over and over again.

MB and I are going to see the highly acclaimed movie "12 Years a Slave" tonight in Brunswick. I'll likely write something about the film afterwards.
