Starting To Feel A Lot Like Halloween
With summer threatening to overstay its welcome this year, I wasn't sure the weather would turn in time for Halloween.
But its gotten chilly in the neighborhood. And when I went outside before the sun was fully up this morning, dark clouds were moving fast over my house. A strong, constant breeze blew in from the west, testing the leaves ability to stay tied to the tall trees in my neighbor's yard across the street. I half expected the bats in the belfry to start swarming.
When it was still sultry, the bales of straw, pumpkins and potted mums my wife carefully arranged on the front stoop seemed out of place. Now, her efforts are paying off. The season is perfect for them.
And our little tuxie has found a new perch from where she keeps an eye on her domain.
