Fall is here

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I would love to be going to Branson this next month, but this year it will have to pass. We will just have to take some drives in our area instead of traveling. 
The past weekend was absolutely beautiful. Of course, we had some frost on Sunday morning and it was a little cool at 9 A.M. when the horse show started, but later on it was absolutely beautiful sitting there watching the boys ride. 
Matt was having a little bit of a problem with Cleo, she just didn't want to do what he needed her to do. When we first got there, he came over to show me his white shirt and new western jeans. He was so proud of them. I will have to get dad to send me some pictures because my camera wouldn't work. He was the youngest in his group and at first they weren't going to let him ride, but he will be 8 this next month. He had to be 8 before the 31st of December so he qualified. He had fun even though he didn't place. 
Jake and Fergie didn't do to bad. He got a 4th, 2nd, and a 1st. He was hoping to qualify for a belt buckle again, but he didn't have enough points. He had gotten his mid term grades, all A's and A-. It doesn't seem like he should be graduating in the Spring from the 8th grade. I remember the day that he was born. Time really flies. 
Well it back to the city to the doctor's office tomorrow, but I can't blame hubby. I have a place on my back that I don't know what it is. It could be that my shingles are coming back, but we are going to go and find out. It is in about the same area as the shingles were the last time.It wouldn't be a surprise if that is what it is with all of the stress I have been under here lately. My hubby says it looks gross, whatever that means. I can feel it, but I can't see it. 
I have been reading your blogs and trying to leave some comments and I appreciate everyone's comments and prayers right now. I need them in more ways then one. Hope you have a beautiful week. We have been in the 70's and low 80's today.  It is time to call it a day.

My Dad had shingles about 3 months ago. And He just got the vaccine last week so it doesn't come back. Did you get the vaccine?
Thank goodness fall is still hot here in Texas. I'm dreading the cold.
I hope everything goes well at the doctor's and that it turns out to be something very minor.
hugs & prayers,

Hello, Shirley, my friend,
The foliage is so pretty there where you live! I know you are enjoying the beautiful scenery and cooler temps. I also know your grandsons must be so proud that you and your hubby take the time to go to their horse shows. I hope your shingles haven't returned. I understand that they are so very, very painful. Sending love and prayers for you~Vicki

Good morning Shirley. You are in my prayers.
We are having the exact same weather here in Wisconsin. Pretty leaves too.

I'm praying it is not the return of shingles again.
Our leaves are late turning this year. I'm a little jealous :)
