"Listen! the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves. We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!" - Humbert Wolfe

The mountains are beautiful with the fall colors.

Debra and I rode up to Nemacolin Woodlands to check out the animals there.

The chipmunks were wild, running up and down the trees.  There had to be have been twenty of them all together.

They weren’t scared of us at all.

On Sunday night we went to the State Theater in downtown Uniontown to see The Rhythm of the Dance.

The State Theater has been open since 1922

 

It’s a small world.  My stepdaughter Alicia’s second grade teacher was handing out refreshments.

Inside the lobby

The Rhythm of the Dance is a  two-hour dance and music extravaganza that contains a wealth of Irish talent.  The show is an inspiring epic, reliving the journey of the Irish Celts throughout history.  Using modern art forms of dance and music, this richly costumed show marries the contemporary and the ancient.

  

The music and the dancing was fascinating.   I especially enjoyed the Bodhran - the Irish drum or Celtic drum.

I am so excited, I won a Kritter Kondo this week for the cats. I know they will love laying in the sun and I’ll love knowing they are safe.
