MidAugust wonders. . .
nippier in the air at dawn & dusk
less bird calls
lighting is magnificent, less humidity, stars are clear
42 degrees this morning and that falls straight into the river
less swimming
perfect time to clean the chimney & stovepipes

stay close,

Sorry, Mike — the ghosts in the machine were at it again. . .when one introduces a "Swept Away" it tends to take over.

School already?! In our day we wouldn't let them breathe a word of any school until after Labor Day. What's the world coming to.

Study hard, Owen!
all's well, Bob
