A is for Autumn. I really love Autumn and how beautiful Autumn is. I also like Fall and the colorful foliage. My oldest granddaughter is named Autumn and she is beautiful!
As beautiful as my granddaughter Autumn is, this post is to showcase the beauty of Autumn (the season). The weather this past week has been extremely hot, with temperatures in the high 90's and even passing the 100 degree mark one day. The hot weather makes me look forward to Autumn, when things start cooling off. Autumn is also a very colorful time here in Western Arkansas. Here are a few photos I have taken of the fall colors over the past few years.
God can make even a junkyard beautiful. I took these photos behind my shop where we keep the vehicles that some people consider junk.
The Kansas City Southern railroad tracks run right behind my shop. I climbed up to the tracks to take these photos.
I'm looking forward to Autumn this year so I can take some more colorful photos!

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled The Little Things - Devotionals from a small town, using articles from the column. I published the second book in the Devotionals from a small town series, titled In the Fog, in December 2017.
