Here in the Northern Hemisphere the Autumnal Equinox arrived at 12:50 this morning.

What that means is the sun crossed the equator heading south.

And what that means is that Autumn, or Fall, is finally here.

And in my part of the Northern Hemisphere, the Central Highlands of Arizona, it arrived with a bang.

Yesterday was sunny and warm, with a high temperature in the low 80's.

Today it is cloudy and rainy with a high in the upper 50's.

Fall has definitely fell.

And Matty is appreciating yet another warm nap in his semi-adopted home across the street from where he lives.

Meanwhile, a story from the weekend.

Gayle, also known as the BRD - Beautiful Rich Daughter, attended an art event.

A woman came up to her and said she had a question that might sound weird if Gayle wasn't who she thought she was.

The woman asked if she was ever referred to as the BRD.

"Of course!", Gayle replied.

Turns out the lady is a regular follower of this blog.

Later another woman came up and asked if Gayle had been part of the Yavapai Regional Medical Center campaign against breast cancer.

Again, she replied in the affirmative, having posed with another woman for a photograph, several years ago, as part of that campaign which still runs occasionally.

The BRD said it was neat to be recognized.

And a bit later a friend of hers came in and it turned out she was friends with both of the other women.

So now maybe I'll have to start referring to her as the BR&FD, or the Beautiful Rich and Famous Daughter.

Once in awhile life do get interestin'.


  1. Love the Rent-a-Cat. No food. No litter box. What could be better?

    Quite the downpour this afternoon. A river of water along the high curbs of downtown Prescott. Good thing I still can jump!

  2. I love the cat, the autumn, and the story about your BRD. :D

  3. I'm glad the BRD enjoys her fame! Being a small-town celebrity, thanks to teaching, was not my cup of tea. Kind of weird that people knew me, but I didn't know them.

  4. That is pretty cool about the BRD getting recognized. I wonder if I would have had the gumption to go up to her? With regard to the weather - this is me sticking my tongue out at you. Our high was in the 90s yesterday.

  5. Here the first day of fall was unsettled.

  6. Definitely Cosmic Chuckle time for BRD!
    The Autumn Equinox is doing its usual thing here..wet and windy
