Autumn in the City of Subdued Excitement

Village Green

Although it may feel like it, and the snow has been falling already, Autumn hasn't called it quits yet.   I spotted the Fairhaven Village Green sign on the way to Daphne's in Fairhaven for hot toddys the other day.   The colors were still so vibrant.  Sometimes the quality of my Motorola DROID camera phone really impresses me.  …
