Jeanne continues to improve after her hip replacement on Oct. 1. She is looking forward to being pain-free for the first time in years (unfortunately, her pain level is still intense), and being able to walk around the yard with the grandchildren.

After enjoying some seasonably cool temperatures last week, Tuesday was quite warm. There is a storm front due to move through that will take the warm weather with it when it goes. Next week, we will be cool again.

We have had two screech owls singing in the holler this past week. All of the other owls like to join in and sing along with them, which is fine by me. I would much rather listen to owls than coyotes.

We have yet to see our first frost in the holler, so the insects are still making music loudly each night.

This is also the time of year when lightning bug larvae are moving about on the ground. They light up just like fireflies do. Whatever the chemicals are that allow them to do this must make the larvae very un-palatable, because they would be extraordinarily easy to eat since they stay lit for a minute or two.

Bucks are still gathered together and running in small packs, but that will change any time now. As the season of rut comes on them, they will get territorial and fight one another for dominance. Deer season will come soon enough and thin out the herd.
