Almost at the equinox…

Always makes me a little sad when the days get shorter. This hasn’t been a great summer for me but normally I much prefer summer, heat and glare and all.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    We had our spotting scope out the other night to take a look at Jupiter and Saturn. With a 60 power scope we could see Saturn’s rings and 3 of Jupiter’s many moons.
    I love the cooler days and the lack of flies, but I know the cold is waiting around the corner. There is much to do before it freezes.
    Then again, there is always much to do.

    I’ve always thought that if October was followed by April it would be perfect. The shorter days are always a bummer.

    The midges should have died off with the hard freeze this morning. It might be time to put the bug light away. We didn’t have that many mosquitos all summer, and the smoke slowed them even more.

    I’m with you, Joel. I love the summer, and I live in the humid South. Of course, to me, it doesn’t seem that bad, as I grew up in this.
    In USN basic training, in winter in Great Mistakes, the Yankees derived great glee from the sufferings of miserable Southerners, telling us, “This isn’t even really cold! You guys are pussies!”
    Vengeance was ours when, as the last class in (wool) dress blues, a group of us arrived in Millington, TN, near Memphis, in May for class “A” school, and they began sweating.
    Quoth I, “Boys, it ain’t even started to get hot yet. Y’all wait ’til August!”

To the stake with the heretic!
