Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
The sun goes down alone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
Out on the road today I saw a Deadhead sticker
On a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, don't
Look back. You can never look back.
(Don Henley, "The Boys of Summer")
It's October already and Summer has truly had her last hurrah. It dropped down to 45 degrees Saturday night and last night -- definitely blanket weather. It's still warm outside during the day -- shorts weather -- but these last vestiges of Summer won't last much longer. Another month or so and Summer will be history. As the days shorten and the temperatures drop, I will miss her as I drag out my woolens and sweaters, jackets and gloves, and ... shoes. Since I wear sandals and slides all Summer, real shoes take some getting used to. I'll have the blisters to prove it, too.
Dressing is hard in weather like this because it's difficult to anticipate what to put on. It was cold enough this morning that I was inclined to bundle up. I knew it would be very warm by afternoon, though, and I'd be too hot. I went with cotton pants and a cotton sweater set. When it heats up, the cardigan can come off and the short sleeved sweater underneath will feel good.
The last remaining Neighbor From Hell is gone. Woo-hoo and hoochie-mama! After this (learning) experience (for all concerned), we'll never have to worry about any more hellions moving in, either.
My neighbor up the street has been exposed to bacterial meningitis and she and her husband have to begin a course of antibiotics today. That's some scary stuff. The person by whom they were exposed has been in the hospital for four days on a ventilator.
