Girls dress so conservatively in the summer. I bet every fellow looks forward to the season of comely sweaters and knee-length skirts showing off well-turned ankles.

I enjoy watching folks in the neighborhood attempt the Sisyphean task of leaf raking.

Anyone up for a hay rack ride and a bonfire? It has been ages since I've burned a weenie on an open fire.

"It’s not daylight saving time.” — Jake Vail, librarian, rural Lawrence

Answered like a true politician. Asked a question but give an answer that does not answer the question. How can I sleep tonight without knowing your answer Jake?

"Tight Sweaters". Too funny. Ah to be young again and notice things like that.

My weird nostalgic feelings seem to manifest themselves in my thoughts. Am I doing something wrong? Must consult a chemical dependency techie... maybe I need to try some new chemicals.

Best thing about fall? The leaves--how they look, how they smell, how they feel when you jump into a huge pile of them. Close second: no more 90°+ days.

"I hate going off day light savings time"

Agreed. I had to read the paper on the porch prior to dinner with the outside lights on.

So Jake likes to dwell in the dark. Odd... must be a librarian thing. I hate going off day light savings time. Actually, I just hate the change, pick one or the other and stick with it.
Favorite part of Fall would be watching my neighbor pick up my leaves after they have blown in his yard.

Seeing another hurricane season go by with no major hurricanes hitting our coasts - like the armageddon the climate change liars promised would come to pass unless we started riding bikes and using fluorescent lamps.

Definitely not the smell of the furnace the first time it kicks on! For me, it's the beautiful colors of the trees.

I'm not sure what Gretchen is going for here. I wonder if she is looking forward to pheasant season.

The rise... of sun into the blushing skin of day of birds to the gun of blue pushing back the night of crisp stars of warmed air plunging upward into the cool, lifting skeins and kettles and the snowy tree cricket's so sweetly plaintive song in the dark stillness of frost's coming
