It's a beautiful Sunday and I am relishing the cool weather. Opened windows~ curtains billowing in and out. I love hearing the sounds of nature in my yard. Too many   months of sealed windows, and the stale scent of air conditioning.  October went by so quickly, and so slowly. October was...

I remember a delicious time of the year that existed when I was a boy but vanished from American society while I was at war. That special time began when crook-toothed Jack-o-lanterns were removed from doorsteps and the woods and fields assumed the yellow-orange color of the vanquished pumpkins....
