Ten things I love about fall

The temperature had dropped overnight, leaving a frozen coating on the grass and our car window. I turned up the heat to try to warm things up and my wife and I were soon on our way. When people talk about Autumn, I think fondly about Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the lead up to Christmas and... Continue Reading →

When I've had a few minutes this past year, I've often gotten up from my desk, stretched, and looked out my office window at several tall trees in my back yard. The trees have taught me a valuable lesson on living my life and the aging process. The leaves on the trees came on strong... Continue Reading →

Mother Nature tells fall to wait its turn

Mother Nature is a fickle sort. Fall foliage has started to pop across the Northeast. Peak fall foliage where I live is expected to take place over the next ten days.

The boys of summer, in my case, the kids from the neighborhood shooting basketball on the street, were holding out for as long as they can, but a change... Continue Reading →

Here comes the sun!

Falling down laughing

I stumbled and fell in the dirt. I had muck and mud dripping from me head to toe. I quickly stood up, dusted myself off, and tried to act like nothing had happened. Hello, I had wet mud splashed across my shirt and pants. Okay, it wasn’t a literal fall, but I had still made... Continue Reading →
