Am I the only one out here having a hard time believing that the 90s were twenty years ago? Sheesh. Not that I want Cross Colors to make a comeback or anything, but sometimes it seems like it was not that long ago. I have always loved this song because it was written about the love of a daughter. I wish that all little girls could be treasured like these lyrics and this video.

Autumn is completely here.

I am completely amazed at how quickly and completely all of that unreal sunny weather we had this Summer vanished. I remember, when school started, having to make sure that the kids all had clothing that allowed them to be cool in the afternoons and now I’m making sure everything is warm and waterproof. When August ended, I was concerned that everything might be too dry because this was one of those summers when everybody got a tan – even people who work in offices all day. Meanwhile, September had record rainfall and we are getting rain in some form just about every day. I won’t be surprised if there are salmon crossing the street again this year. I guess that’s what hot cider, tea, soup, fondue, blankets, board games and crafts are for.
