It definitely feels like the first day of fall.   The thermometer on my front porch reads 56 degrees this morning.   I already have some leaves falling and lots of acorns.  Looking forward to seeing the leaves turn their bright and beautiful colors.  When the leaves start to fall in earnest  I am even looking forward to the raking and burning that my daughter and I will be doing.  I do not need the central air or heat on another thing I like about this time of year.   Have a blessed and wonderful day.

Today is citizenship day.   All of us who are citizens of this wonderful country should be thankful for the freedoms we have and thankful for the men and women in the armed forces who put their lives on the line for us every day.  I ask each and everyone of you to pray that this country stays strong like our founding fathers wanted.  God Bless America.

This day also would have been my husbands birthday.  He would be 80.  It seems just like yesterday I had him with me.  I have lots of good memories of our time together and I know I will see him again.  I know he is now longer suffering and is in a better place. 

I wish I could post pictures but I still have not found out why I have trouble posting pictures.  I guess I will just have to post without pictures.

Let us not forget what happened 13 years ago.  Planes flying into the twin towers in New York City, the Pentagon and the plane down in the field in Pennsylvania.  I remember where I was when I heard the news.  Do you?  I pray every night for God to keep this country safe and strong.  Remember those that were lost in the above  mentioned tragedies.   GOD BLESS AMERICA.

"By all these lovely tokens September days are here, with summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer."   ~Helen Hunt Jackson~

"Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and oh so mellow.   Try to remember the kind of September when grass was green and grain so yellow.   Try to remember the kind of September when you  were a young and a callow fellow. Try to remember and if you remember then follow ..follow,   oh oh.
    ~Lyrics by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt~

Today is the first day of September, Labor Day,  wishing every one a safe and happy holiday.
