Autumn... or Fall

Ahhhhh.... fall, or as some prefer to say, autumn is upon us with all the leaves on trees changing colors and falling to the ground. Gardens by this time of the year are usually harvested though here we've had such warm, wonderful weather that the season has been extended. I have turned on my heat a couple of times for long enough to 'take the chill off' though haven't had to keep it going for long. Now, I lit the pellet stove today and may need to keep it running until spring. This is the time of year when sports nuts start thinking of football gifts, of hockey games, when many put away their motorcycles or 'muscle' cars, when people dust off their 'sleds' and prepare for the start of snow.
