Fall

According to the calendar, summer ends this week. According to the outside temperature tonight, summer is over now. I'm not sorry to see it end.

I really enjoy the cool crisp air of autumn. It's even better now that I'm living in this community. I don't have to sweep the leaves anymore. I have more energy now, during the summer, it's usually too hot to do anything.

Now it's time to clean out the closet and get rid of all those clothes I'll never wear again. I just got rid of two suits I haven't worn since I retired three years ago. I can't believe how long I keep my clothes. I've promised myself that I'll weed out the old worn out clothes and not keep anything just because it was a great buy 15 years ago.

Until then, my closet will be crowded (the worst thing about the change of seasons) with clothes that are ready for fall and winter and lighter clothes that I might need in the next few weeks when I know it will get warm again.

DEAR MOM,

I FEEL YOUR PAIN ABOUT CLEANING OUT THOSE OLD CLOTHES. AFTER I STOPPED WORKING IN "THE OUTSIDE WORLD", I WENT AND BOUGHT A WHOLE NEW WARDROBE CONSISTING OF WORK ATTIRE. I MOVED TO THE BEACH AND HAVE LIVED IN SWEAT SUITS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF AN OCCASIONAL FUNERAL. I HATE TO GET RID OF THEM, BUT THEY DON'T FIT ANYMORE. PERHAPS THAT MAKES IT A BIT EASIER TO CHUCK THEM....SIGH!!
