'Twas Brillig and the Slithy Toves . . .

did Gyre and Gimble in the wabe:

I'm always reminded of this my favorite poem
(the Jabberwocky - by Lewis Carroll)
as the weather turns to Fall, and one begins to hear the storms a brewin'
outside the window. The strong rustle of the leaves blowing on the trees
as they trickle past the window in a steady flow with the oncoming thoughts of
winter approaching.

The changing of the seasons here in Utah is spectacular with the amazing color
presentation we're surrounded by here in our little mountainous corner. Being surrounded on
three sides by Autumn foliage is an amazing sight
and I'm grateful for every day that it lingers . . .

But I hear winter storms a brewin' outside my window . . .

It recalls to mind some of my favorite memories of summer
and I have to relive them just one more time . . .

of the shish - kabob

Thank you Dustin for the inspiration -

We all couldn't help but laugh the day 
the kids took out "Christine"

It totally lends itself to silly antics . . .

Your summer looks like it was a lot of fun. I can see why you will miss it. But as for me . . . I am so glad to finally have some cooler weather!! We could actually go for a walk outside this morning and not sweat to death!
