Oh, my - the puns that come to mind after changing the clocks last night (and this morning)!
It seems like only a short time ago I was writing about how the trees were beginning to change, and the Progressive Dinner for November was drawing near. Now the trees have dropped nearly all their leaves and the first Progressive Dinner is in the books as a success!
Ruth had a milestone birthday this year, so I surprised her with a party last weekend, and visits from family and friends.
Ruth's folks were the first to arrive - Friday night at 8pm. Ruthie knew nothing about it, of course, so when I finally had a moment to check the status of the flight, I realized they would be arriving early. I told Ruth I had to leave, and she couldn't ask why, and I hopped in the car and drove to the Portland airport (about 20 minutes). They were waiting, of course, and we had a nice reunion and visit in the car on the way home.
Somehow it seems a bit strange to be thinking about fall foliage with summer rolling along in the middle of August, but we know from the reservation requests we've received that people are beginning to make plans for their fall leaf-peeping trips to New England and the Maine coast.
