JediShua and shazbazzar remember when falling leaves became toys for making crash cushions, obstacle courses, and cool fortresses.
BEWARE: As Halloween draws ever nearer, there may be transient Transylvanians out to draw your blood. As pumpkin spicy as autumn has become, shazbazzar and JediShua still remember the reason the season is called “fall” — falling leaves!

TechnoRetro Dads remember that toys not only grow on trees, they fall from them and can be used to build mountains, forts, or soften jumps from tree limbs. Plug in your ear buds, EarBuds for an audio excursion into the past with bits of nostalgia and at the possibility of bites from vampires and leave the raking to us!
