Summer is Always the Shortest Season

Summer is always the shortest season, no?  Yet I do not mourn her passing – for all of summer’s flings, I prefer autumn’s loves. – Cary Grant


Only fools argue with Cary Grant


The best things about fall – an abbreviated and biased list:


Football – Professional, College, High School or Pee-Wee, doesn’t matter just lace em’ up

Picnics without mosquito’s

The tourists are gone

Baseball playoffs

That glorious period where both summer vegetables and the first of the fall harvest are available

Off-season rates at the beach

Magic hour – photographers and filmmakers know of what I speak

Earth tones – In; Pastels – Out


Wedding Season is O.V.E.R.

Most urchins are back in school

Hot coffee and a cigar is far superior to iced coffee and a cigar

Walks to the subway without perspiration

Technicolor running through Rock Creek Park

A post-work stroll through the Zoo becomes a very cool date

140 days left and counting

    Fall is my favorite season as well!! I am ready for the weather around here to co-operate so I can put away my summer clothes and move the fall stuff to the front of the closet!

    Agreed- fall is the season of crisp mornings, falling leaves, colors.. and my birthday. New clothes. Crisp apples, pumpkin patches. Looking for an autumn love.

  4. I absolutely agree. Nothing beats Fall. I’ve been aching for football season to begin since February. Bring it on!
