Fall is in the air!!! Literally!!

This is one beautiful day!!!  Was outside early, around 8 a.m., the temps were in the upper 50's!  That is so unlike our usual weather for this time of year!!  The sun was out and my thoughts were running towards it being a somewhat warm day.  Well, so far I am wrong on that one!!  We are just getting to 70 degrees!    The Farmer's Almanac might have just called it right this year for our region (Southern Jersey).  Looking forward to fall!!

Well Monday signals the end of summer!!  For some of us, it will be leaving just as it entered.  Uneventful.  As I get older, I do not see things or enjoy things as I once did.  Summertime used to be waited upon like Christmas but without cold weather!  Memorial Day, and Fourth of July BBQs, where you would get to see those family and friends that only seem to come around when the grill gets lit!  Then there is the fishing and crabbing!!  If you went salt water fishing, you didn't do one without the other!  Fresh water fishing was different.  You learned how to fish, to be patient, and to be bored beyond belief.  Either way it got you out and away from the house for the day!!  It couldn't be all that bad if you got to get away for several hours!  Late summer was always the best!!  Why??  Back to School shopping!!  Who didn't like that? ( the parents didn't of course!) Would not be summer without the last BBQ of the season! Labor Day!!!!  We knew beyond a doubt that it was over.  School would start in a couple of days, and the wait would be on for the next summer.  Now??????  It came and went, nothing exciting.  

Now for something funny!!!  Thanks for the share Homesteading Ways!!

A male driver is pulled over by a cop and the following conversation takes place: Man: What's the problem officer? Cop: You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone. Man: No sir, I was going 65. Wife: Oh Harry. You were going 80. (Man gives his wife a dirty look.) Cop: I'm also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light. Man: Broken tail light? I didn't know about a broken tail light! Wife: Oh Harry, you've known about that tail light for weeks. (Man gives his wife a dirty look.) Cop: I'm also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt. Man: Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car. Wife: Oh Harry, you never wear your seat belt. Man: Shut your mouth, woman! Cop: Ma'am, does your husband always talk to you this way? Wife: No, only when he's drunk.

Have a Great Weekend!!!!!
