Welcome to Autumn.

Yesterday was the fall equinox which means summer has officially ended. I used to mark the passings of the seasons with an annual post, but I’d fallen out of the habit. I’m a day late with this one, but better late than never, right?

Personally, I’m ready for fall as this summer has been somewhat brutal temperature-wise here in Michigan. Right on cue the forecast for the next week has us at 70° or under for highs and the lower 50s to upper 40s for evening temps, which’ll make for nice sleeping weather without the A/C going.

So in celebration of the new season I thought I’d dig through my pics for a nice autumn shot:

I really like this pic, but it’s from 2009 so it’s not really representative of how I currently look. Also shorter beard and less gray and also leaves haven’t started turning yet, but what the hell. I look good in it.

The only pics I have from around this time last year are a couple of shots from a fire drill at work that aren’t particularly autumn-ish. There’s also a pic of an autumn moon as I was leaving for work that is mostly darkness so we’ll have to make do with the above. Hard to believe that’s from seven years ago. I look so much older today:

What the hell happened to me?

What the hell happened to me?

  1. What is bothering me is that the older I get, the more time is speeding up. I’m 50 this year and I am having trouble saying that aloud. What the hell did happen?

  2. Trying not to ingest pumpkin spice in something for the next month. That is what fall means to me. That and having to wear a sweater now. Oh the hassles.

  3. You still look pretty good to me, Les. I tell myself all the time that what I lose on looks and energy and memory, I more than make up for with wisdom about the big picture. I don’t know how accurate that is, but it’s comforting.
