It’s Sunday. It’s the very last Sunday of summer. We’ll have another week with some days in the low 80s, but that may be it. Autumn begins this coming Thursday. It’ll be like wringing the last few drops out of the summer rag. It’s the special time when we have baseball and football on TV at the same time. The Tivo or DVR will be put through its paces. Oktoberfest is now and the märzen lagers will be flowing. Soon I’ll be bad-mouthing the cold weather.
