I’ve been meaning to do a Fall post for a while now, but since the word Fall is really quite meaningless here in the great nation of Texas then I thought now was as good a time as any. Case and point… there is a forty degree difference between the expected high in Houston and Ann Arbor, MI for tomorrow. At any rate, here is a menagerie of things that make me think “Fall.”
Subject to Change, by Maggie Taylor. I mean come on, if ever there were a Mr. November in the Maggie Taylor twelve year calendar then this would be he.
Pianist/Comedian Victor Borge and baritone Robert Merill performing “Autumn Leaves”
I remember watching Victor Borge all the time on PBS fundraising drives when I was a kid and he has consistently made me laugh ever since then.
One of my favorite things about the change of seasons is the drop in temperature… the colder the better! Partly because I enjoy breaking out my coats and scarves but mostly because I can use my Pottery Barn faux fur throw without breaking into an instant sweat. Seriously… this thing is amazing!
And finally, the advent of Fall means the approach of Thanksgiving and the wonderful inevitability of devouring a Greenberg smoked turkey!!!! That’s right, these perfectly smoked—and mail orderable—birds out of our very own Tyler, Texas are one of my favorite things about the season.
Oprah loves ‘em and, though that may be a deterrent for some of you, so should you!
