Although the reds had left NH, the subtle yellows, oranges and greens along the rivers, rocks, pines and birches were a gorgeous offering beside the highways. We gathered for dinner the first night with plans to watch the third debate. As we were enjoying the filets a bird frantically tried to get in one window after another. We were afraid his flipping around and flying would injure him so we pulled the curtains and tossed an unappreciated dinner roll out onto the deck.
Shortly after this incident, we felt a vibration under our chairs that lasted 5 to 9 seconds for which the bird activity must have been a harbinger. It was an earthquake begun in Hollis, ME. We then watched the debates while we drew signs and pacified ourselves as only handwork can calm. Just yesterday, I added the embroidery around the bird to learn to never iron embroidery. After posting, I went on to add some red stitches to further communicate the frantic flaps.
