It is officially the last week of summer. It ends Friday September 21st. Not Labor Day as the news people tend to tell us. Gone are the humid days, the boiling sun, the mosquitoes, the fleas. Getting into the hot car, blasting the A/C and opening the windows until it starts feeling cooler. The wild fires, the beach traffic, the man feet. Oh how I will not miss the man feet. Even the lady feet are getting to me.
Autumn is upon us. The leaves that need to be raked and bagged, the ragweed, the weeds, the application of fall fertilizer. The school buses stopping at every corner making me late for work. Halloween, Thanksgiving and the holiday traffic. The Christmas music that starts a month too early. The commercials that repeat every 30 seconds.
Don’t get me wrong. One of the nicest things about living in the northeast are the changing seasons. How people live in Florida in the wintertime is beyond me. Christmas is not about Santa Claus getting sun stroke in his Bermuda shorts and sandals. And the last thing I want to see is Santa’s man feet. Urgh..
