263. The fall is one of the best times of year to visit a farm for a hayride. What might it be like to be driven around in a hay-filled truck, walk through a pumpkin field and hang out with the farm animals? What would you enjoy about it, and what would you dislike? Why?

264. You've been entered into the Leaf Raking Olympics! You will challenge all of your friends to be the fastest to rake up the backyard pile of leaves. What would it take for you to get a gold medal in this event? What would be the toughest part and why?
