Points East: Time to find my long johns

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

However, the forest floor was washed in bright yellow, red and orange.

So here it is, two weeks deeper into October than our pictures of four years ago and the big, walnut tree in my back yard is as green as it was in July.  

But the weatherman is saying a hard freeze is just around the corner.  I have about 15 bushels of pears still hanging on a tree in the backyard orchard and I have to figure out something to do with them before Wednesday.
