Unlike the first sings of spring, robins, geese flying north, daffodills and tulips, the first sings of fall aren't so, well, inspiring. Geese are goin' south, and the leaves are just starting to gear up for their grand finale. What happened to summer this year? Did I miss it? I thought it was just a very long, dry spring. I just heard the almanac prediction for this winter, cold and dry for my region. Frozen septics and wells, oh joy!! Love goin' to the privy when its -30 :waa: Haulin' water's a fun thing too! Oh well, the price of Eden.
