I have always thought that the fall of the year was really the more beginning of things than New Year's which falls in the dead of winter after all the activities of Christmas and nothing to look forward to but January, February and March and Income Tax time. 

Ah fall with its bright blue skies, lovely moderate temps, the leaves on the trees beginning to turn eleven different colors with the blue spruces and other fir trees behind them or in the midst of them accenting their beauty.   Everything starts up again.  The most obvious being school which takes on many meanings for different people. Teacher's best three things about teaching--June, July, and August are now over for another year.  Some young mother's are sending their first born  away from home for the first time.  Mothers with older children are breathing a sigh of relief that summer is over.

Churches start up their Sunday Schools and other programs.  And of course, FOOTBALL is back and the Green Bay Packers are filling our daily newspapers with trivea on all the injuries and predictions of future wins.  High school  football is just as important and comcert series and all kinds of things!  Can't  you feel the excitement of a new fall?

Out come the heavier clothes that are kinder to the human form and can cover a lot of deficiencies.  You can hit your ball farther on the golf course because the ground is harder and they roll baby roll.  I'm sure you all can think of other things that fall brings.  It is my favorite time of the year.

Just a note in closing.  I have found out this summer that Old? Who? Me? has now occurred and I am glad this summer when I was in sick bay most of it is now over.  I have seen so many doctors and ERs and they can't find the source of my problem so I am leaving for the Mayo Clinic Sunday.   As usual, I pray for strength and courage.

Oh, Bernie, I'm so sorry to hear about your health! Hopefully they will find out whatever is wrong with you soon and bring you some relief from whatever is causing you pain or distress.

Fall is a nice season if we don't go from 100degree days to snow practically overnight, which has happened before here in northwest Georgia! If it's at least four weeks of cool temps and gentle breezes and slow rains, then it's for me! It's a great season to garden, freshening up this year's and then cleaning up the mess. And, like you said, a change of wardrobe!

Will be thinking of you, Bernie, and wishing you well across the miles ...

I'm very sorry to read that you are not feeling so good, Bernie, and am sending you best wishes from across the Atlantic. I'm hoping that they will be able to make a medical diagnosis and sort out whatever it is that's troubling you.

Oh, Bernie, I'm really sorry to hear it's been a health-challenged summer. Sending love and light and prayers your way.

Fall is my favorite time of year as well - the time I feel most alive.

So sorry to hear of your health worries. Thinking of you and sending you best wishes from across the 'pond'.

You had me pondering my thoughts of fall, before your surprise ending.

May God bless you, Bernie, with renewed health and strength.

I hope the frustration won't get you down. xoxo
