|A vision of the season:|
Baby's (a.k.a. my granddaughter's) first fall.
Festivals fill the fall calendar, and hub and I spent a day wandering our town’s Funfest. Saturday’s wet weather kept people indoors, but Sunday’s warm, sunny sky lured crowds outdoors. A variety of activities amused the crowd. Craft vendors sold wares, local businesses promoted products, charities publicized their causes, bands provided music, food stands nourished the hungry, a dog show offered an opportunity for proud owners to show off their best friends, and rides, games and hands-on activities entertained the kids.
Laura Lee Carter of The Adventures of the New Old Farts also had a great time this weekend enjoying the fall colors and some fabulous Celtic music this week at the Spanish Peaks Celtic International Music Festival! Come share in the fun!
Carol Cassara also had travel on her mind this week. When it comes to travel, it's necessary to give up any illusion of control. Over at Heart Mind Soul, Carol Cassara describes her latest travel follies.

This week on The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about what to do if you were one of the 500 million Yahoo users whose accounts were hacked. The account information stolen includes names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, some passwords and, in some cases, security questions and answers. Credit card and bank account information, which is stored in a different system, wasn’t stolen, Yahoo said.
Wherever you may wander this week, take a few minutes to check out our boomers. They love to hear from you.

riding to school, or in this case,
riding to the bus stop.
