What wonderful, beautiful weather we have had these past few days. I love to be outside now, but I also like to sit down and reminisce during the fall season. Maybe because it is the time of year we think about home and hearth. Some of it also may have to do with spending time at the Chamber of Commerce banquet and listening to all the “oldies” via Elvis and the juke box last Thursday evening. That certainly brought back many memories and was a great evening.
