It’s an early fall Friday which means cooler temperatures, changing leaves, apples on our apple tree, and football for the backdrop for the hustle and bustle of the academic year. We’ve had just enough recent rain to make some fall foThis really is my favorite time of year.
I’m excited to switch between the Penn State “white out” game against Auburn on Saturday night and the Bristol NASCAR night race. Ohio State’s game verses Tulsa will provide a nice flickering backdrop to some weekend reading and writing. Without Carson Wentz to bring in local viewers, my Eagles aren’t on TV much out here in the Red River Valley, but I’ll be following them on my laptop. I’ve heard, but can’t confirm, that the Phillies season is over.
I hope that you all have some enjoyable weekend plans and, if not, maybe my quick hits and varia can help!
