Can you feel it?

When you woke up Friday morning and left for work or play, did you feel what I felt? When I hit the fresh air outside I told myself “Fall is in the air.” There was dew on the grass and it was chilly. I had to go back inside and grab a sweater. Some will say they are not ready for summer to end… but for me and others, autumn is the most wonderful time of the year, and it can come anytime now.
