Jelly Belly

About an hour drive away from Inverness, just over the Wisconsin border, there is a Jelly Belly warehouse/store. You can take a tour and see how jelly beans are made. The company goes back before the 1900's. It really is a fascinating tour. This is taken out in front of the store. If you are ever in Kenosha, is a great place for a visit....AND they have a tasting counter for those unusual flavors you might like to try!

On the street where I live

It seems like it was overnight the leaves went from green to brown. This is the sugar maple in front of my house that usually turns a BRILLANT color of red. It is turning orange and dropping leaves. The Honey Locus has already dropped all its leaves. Maybe because we haven't had a lot of rain in the past month......

The end of the season

A Beijing wedding

Meet our new daughter in law, Rainey...or Yang Ran. Gregory married her in June in Beijing...We had a wonderful time and are delighted to have Rainey as a member of our family. They have been here visiting for a few weeks. I am sure she will be delighted to get home as she has met sooooo many of Greg's relatives --on both sides of the family. I can only imagine what she will tell her parents about her new family! I certainly remember what I told my parents after I met all 9 siblings of my husband.....quite the event!!!

A bridge in Kansas City, Mo

Thanks so much to *Louis* over at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo for hosting The Sunday Bridge Series. While I was NOT playing croquet, I have spent one weekend in Kansas City, MO. and the other in Washington D.C. And after this weekend...which is our 34th wedding anniversary, I will be gone to Beijing, China for my oldest son's wedding. Blogging is NOT easy to do in China if you do not have a computer to take with you so I will be unable to stop and visit. Hope you all have a great month.
This is a bridge I saw as we left a FABULOUS barbecue in Kansas City. It goes over a retention ditch I think.
