~October~

This week at "Our Beautiful World" the prompt word is "October"
The pictures I am sharing with you I just took today Oct 8th in Michigan....
 
I had a plan for this week, but then the funniest thing happened....
Out of the spur of the moment, on a whim (still with me?)..lol..
I pulled into this driveway I have passed many times as I noticed he had stacks of pumpkins...
 
 
What could be more "October" in Michigan then pumpkins??
 
 
But wait, what is that I see??  Chickens, lots of chickens...
and oh boy here they come...
 
 
and look at that beauty autumn chicken...
 
.
 
They were so funny and I laughed so hard
I know the man must of thought I was a lunatic
But this one big white chicken was running and it was fat, I just cracked up
He said "I know, they are fat, I feed them too much"....
I asked him about the coyotes, he says he puts the chickens in every night...
what a guy!!
 
Then he says, you have to see my dog, so I am taking pictures
(while one chicken is trying to peck at my lens)
and he comes out of his barn with this...
 
 
Funniest looking dog I ever saw...lol
He says it follows him everywhere he goes....
I asked him if he has any more animals, he says no...
but wait...here come the ducks.....
 
 
So this is my October...it can't get any better then this
And all I have to do is cross the creek, go thru a pasture, some woods,
cross a two lane highway and I am at his house
and I never even knew he lived there
What a fun day I had!!!!! (Oh yeah, I bought some pumpkins).

I would have to stop for those pumpkins too!! I love the mix of white ones with the orange, that says fall to me!!
How funny to see all the animals come and greet you, great pictures of them!
What a cute dog that is! I bet you made the man's day stopping by his farm. So I take it he's not right next door to you, it was worth the trip and to make a new friend.
