Leaves are starting to fall - the evenings are brisk and the forecast for later this week has overnight temps down into the 40s. It’s happening. Fall is coming. Later in the fall, two days before election day so in 49 days but who’s counting, we’ll set the clocks back …
For now, we have to think about falling ahead, into firepit season and campaign season and football season (at least on TV, for now), and pumpkin season. What traditions will change this year — and will those changes be for the better, or for the worse?
This year, bobbing for apples is out. Pumpkin patches and apple orchards were made for social distancing. But hayrides? Corn mazes? Hmmm, not so sure. or treating can probably happen - but maybe the kids need big buckets and the moms (or whoever does the candy giving out) need to brush up on their candy tossing skills?
Something tells me finding masks won’t be a problem.
