While I’m in no hurry to end Beth’s summer vacation, I can’t wait for the season to change. In Florida, the season changes sometime around Halloween. About one quarter of the leaves fall off the oak tree out front, so we don’t get the full fall treatment. But the temperatures do cool off a bit. By then football season is in full swing, followed by basketball and hockey season. So to sum it up: the weather gets comfortable and all the sports that really matter get into the swing of things. Now throw in all the major holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. People stop talking about fluid replacement and sunscreen; and start talking about fantasy leagues, betting pools, sweaters and open windows. I for one am ready.
