I do not know what a Dead Princess Bride is, but I am quite sure it is not someone you want to mess with. While escorting this zombie on her door to door quest for chocolate and sugar I was wise to stay back at least one house length as instructed. In years past I was able to extract a small tax for my troubles. This year I received no tip for services rendered. Fortunately I can stay awake longer than she and will have my treat in the end.
I could not resist one last image of fall. Actually, there is one more I am waiting on. A lone tree in a field is just starting to turn and I have been leaving for work earlier than normal in hopes of catching it in the fog. Stay tuned. This evening I enjoyed a great game of indoor soccer. I played without my knee brace and scored two goals in a 9-3 winning effort. Even the toughest day at work is no match for a good run on the pitch.
This afternoon Kyle had soccer practice with his travel team. The field was rather far from the house so I decided to do a little nature photography. I came across a pair of beavers working on a dam. I think this was the male (the larger of the two) who was ferrying a branch over to his construction project.
Nicolai entertains several friends from his church youth group. They had mac and cheese for lunch and enjoyed a movie in the home theater. I had a glorious morning. Conditions were perfect for soccer, cool and crisp, the field still soft from yesterday’s rain. We were facing arch rivals Acton/Boxborough and my knee was feeling pretty strong. At the half we were down 2-0 and things were looking grim. During the second half we earned a penalty kick to bring us within a goal of a tie. In the last 3 minutes we scored 2 beautiful goals to steal the game. It was the sweetest victory imaginable and we celebrated with Hungarian Goulash at Jeno’s house.
This afternoon Maya performed in her Halloween Piano recital. Click below to see a video of her performance. She played the theme for the Pink Panther and dressed the part.
