On Thursday, Doug and I drove to Battle Creek, Michigan, to visit Doug's brother, Dennis.
Some of you will recall that Dennis had to have his left leg amputated below the knee in April, 2014. He's been out of the hospital for a year now, living in an apartment in Battle Creek, with the help of a Home Health Aide who comes in several times a week to assist with all the chores that Dennis can't do for himself.
Thursday was such a beautiful fall day that, after a meal at Cracker Barrel, we went for a drive through the Battle Creek countryside. When I saw this "checkerboard" barn, I asked Doug to stop so I could get some pictures.
Then, on the way home that evening, I snapped these pictures of some of the fall foliage along the highway.
