The corn plants have been dead for quite a while. The tops of the stocks have broken off and the corn is ready to be picked. The corn seed has its dents in it meaning that they are hard and dry. The plants really do have an gray-brown look of death with the stalks barely holding up each of its ear of corn.
The grass is still green as it leads up to the edge of the cornfield. Evidence of animals making paths through the corn means maybe the deer are helping themselves to it in the nitght.

I can see now that the sun is coming up to the right side of the neighbor's roof. I remember a couple of months ago sharing a shot of the sun coming up way past that flag pole on the far left. "The earth is titling," shouts Chicken Little. It will stop tilting in that direction on December 21st and then we will start the earth axis changing back the opposite way.

I miss seeing this era of train and engine. I remember them specifically as we would wait for the train to pass at the track in the middle of town in Murray, Iowa. I was a kid that was fascinated with the design of the engine. Back in those times they didn't keep them very clean as they were the workhorses of the train industry pulling freight and people across the United States.

The neighbor's tree on the corner looking east towards all the other houses in our area. Three different styles of house as you make comparisons of them.
It is a beautiful maple tree. Our house can be seen in the background. You can also see down the street going south on Cedar Street.
