The Cool Fresh Breath Of Fall

Last night, I felt it begin to roll in as we returned from our workout at the Y.  

As I took put out the trash and recycle early this morning, it was here.

Just now, I bathed in it for the first time, and thoroughly enjoyed my extended walk with the dogs.  
Aaahhh, the cool fresh breath of Fall has come!  

Even if the autumnal equinox is officially September 21, and one (or two) 'Indian Summers' likely loom in our near future, it is Fall for me now.  Football is back!  Hail to the Washington Redskins!  Then there's the angle of the sun in the morning, the length of the shadows and the coolness they hold, and grass that always seems greener (especially after some much needed rain) - it is Fall for me.  

As I walked along with Mulligan and Gibbs, my mental jukebox started playing "Turn, Turn, Turn" by The Byrds.  "To everything (turn, turn, turn), There is a season (turn, turn, turn), And a time for every purpose, under heaven".  It's a classic song, it's a classic memory, it's a classic feeling!  

Enjoy the Cool Fresh Breath of Fall!
