And so, as we enter the end of August, the summer's waning days begin. The heat will struggle to stay, but hopefully by mid to late September; we'll experience that old familiar chill in the air, the visible breath I long to see. I hold nothing against the summer season; it offers respite from the season before, as does every season. It allows for more evenings on the deck, it gives good ale the chance to be even more refreshing, and of course the bass fishing can be a blast! We had our first vacation as a family, a weekend in Ocean City MD, it could not have been without summer. But I say good bye to summer much easier than most. I welcome the fall. The Blog has officially begun; the autumn marks its inception, enjoy!
