I should have mentioned in yesterday's post that I have a very good friend who is a breast cancer survivor. I'm very happy to say that she is doing great.

And I should have posted this photo.

That blonde on the right is the BRD (Beautiful Rich Daughter.)

(She says I could probably remove the R from that though she's still doing better than her mother and step-father.)

She was selected by a photographer to model for the YRMC publication, which has been widely distributed.

Her parents are proud.

I am also proud of our Arizona State University Sun Devils football team for their shellacking of UCLA in the Rose Bowl last night. 

The defeat dropped the Bruins from 7th to 20th in the AP top 25 poll.

The Sun Devils are still not ranked. A mere oversight, I'm sure.

We had a rain shower here this morning. Nothing like what the East Coast of the U.S. is being hammered with but more is forecast for the next couple of days.

With cooler temperatures, Autumn has definitely arrived.

Speaking of seasonal changes, I stopped in a big box warehouse store this morning and was a bit startled to see a huge display of Christmas trees and lights.

Today is October 4th.

Next thing you know we'll be hearing about next year's presidential election.

I could put up with the Christmas trim in exchange for no more election stuff.

BRD certain is B. As I've noted before she reminds Lana and me of her mother.

You know how these merchandisers are doing everything they can in the fight to keep Christmas green.

The BRD really is so lovely - I'm jealous of her hair!

The "R" might be in doubt but the "B" certainly is not. Great photo! The last line in your post cracked me up. The presidential election coverage is pretty much 24/7 these days.
