Our Halloween 2017.

Unusual Halloween in that we were into Day 2 without power (or Internet) after Sunday night’s powerful storm. Luckily we had two generators. So Teischan could ready with lights. Had to put the generators away before we went trick-or-treating.

Earlier in the day we weren’t even sure whether they would be having trick-or-treat because of the widespread power failures. Alton town got power back just in time.

Nice weather, probably the best we have had in ages. Not cold — and yes, we have had snow. Lot of people out. I think many just wanted to get out. Also there had not been school that day or the day before, i.e., Monday. That is unusual for what was a rainstorm — with no snow at all.

A good Halloween. Teischan made out like a bandit. We visited two neighbors — both without power (same as us). We were the only ‘treaters’ that had visited. So, they gave Teischan large quantities of goodies. Well, you can see her haul.

The reds, as you have seen, stole the show when it came to the New Hampshire 2017 Fall Foliage — one of the better ones of late. But, the yellows are standing out of late. I took these all in Alton and some are indeed from our yard. I took these just ahead of the rain. We probably lost a lot of leaves, of all colors, to the rain — which was hard at times.

Red berries in profusion New Hampshire 2017 Anura Guruge Sony a7 II


I saw this at the Alton (NH) Circle gas station around 4:10pm. I was across the road taking some pictures so the camera was already at hand.

I tried to parse that message every which way and it still does not make any sense to I.

It makes it sound like God is no more (not that that makes much difference to I).

What about the Holy Trinity? Isn’t Jesus & God one and the same thing?

And then the yellow lettering below that!

Wow. Made my day though.

Plus, how can Bill O’Reilly be blaming God if God has passed the baton onto Jesus?

All in one property within 2-miles of our house. Private, secluded property set back from the road with this beautiful pond dug by the owner 29-years ago. I have long wanted to visit and take pictures. Lucky enough to have met the owner, recently, on one of my near-daily runs. He came by today to invite me to come up and get some pictures before the leaves blew off. Though the light was not ideal, I went. WOW! What a place. 42-acres of WONDERLAND. Enjoy.

Our Mail In Alton, N.H., Was Delivered At 8:05 PM By The USPS Mailman!

by Anura Guruge



I am not complaining. I feel BAD for our mailman — who I consider a friend. He still had about 3-hours of delivery ahead of him! That meant he wouldn’t get home till close to midnight. That is crazy.

Yes, yes, yes. I know him. I know him well. Yes, he doesn’t normally finish his round till 7 or 8pm, but even for him this was LATE.

Appears that another Alton delivery person walked-out at 1pm. ‘Quit’ is what I was told.

We have had a lot of turnover.

I was expecting some copies of my latest meditation book, from Amazon, in the mail. Amazon said it was out for delivery. We had gone out for dinner and didn’t get back till 8pm. I checked the mailbox. No mail. So, I assumed my books had been delayed till the next day. Then I was out, with the dogs when I saw the headlights of the Jeep approaching. I knew immediately who it was. We talked. I told him to be ‘careful’. It is a tricky route — at night.

I hope they fix whatever the issues are at the Post Office. Nice crew — the last time I visited.
