Fall in the Air? | GG’s TOT

More News in Fawnskin

Above: News Dispensers at Fawnskin Post Office are BIG Breaking News!

GG noticed her Aspen tree leaves beginning to turn to gold about a week and a half ago, then last night the damp chill brought the temperatures down into the 40s here on the party perch.

Hermit girl GG finally ambled into town after a long hiatus to discover two dispensers for “other” news sources here in the valley.

Encroachment! But hey, I don’t publish a print edition any more so someone has to do it.

Along the way, it appears that a beautification project has sprung up in the triangle.

Fawnskin Triangle Beautification

GG doesn’t like fake foliage but it doesn’t take much maintenance and birders tell me it is good for attracting the avian clan off season.

However, a real beauty was springing up just behind the fake stuff.

Real Beauty in the Fawnskin Triangle

We like color and GG is enjoying all the flower pots and new plants that she inherited from PMR Jimi. It makes the party perch a more perky and pleasant place.
