One by one the signs of Fall are visible.
The Lily Pads are turning yellow.
When I see a good patch of Lily Pads I think of a puppy we had once…Misty was a Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie) and we got her in the spring of the year. One weekend we took her down by the docks at my parents and there were some ducks in the water beyond the Lily Pads. WELL…she was used to green being lawn…so she ran right off the end of the dock. She learned to swim real fast…and someone saved her…not sure who…that part of the memory is gone. She never liked water very much after that….but she learned all about docks and Lily Pads.
Hero Far Guy says “I just reached down in the water and grabbed her.”
