Don’t get me wrong, I love the summer. But let’s not kid ourselves: it’s over. Kids are back in school, it’s foggy in the morning, jackets are still needed at lunch. I, for one, am ready for it. I’m tired of sunscreen, tired of wearing the same 8 polo shirts all week, tired of sleeping under only a sheet. I’m ready to break out the sweaters, to turn up the heat in the car and get toasted to the bone during my morning commute, to shop for Christmas gifts, to wander the downtown market sipping hot spiced wine… oh, wait, that’s only legal in Europe. What a stupid law.

Opening day is scheduled for November 23rd!! 🙂
