    school starts next month....the summer has flown by....it feels like just the other day we were talking about fireworks....now we are talking about the summer heat....the buck eye trees are turning and losing their leaves....fall will soon be upon us....fall festivals and fall fairs...


    i remember when old people would tell me not to wish away time....i was young and in the hurry of youth to see it all and do it all....they would say..'dont wish away time, some day you will want it back'...

    they were right

    I'm a tennis junkie and 115 heat index is not compatible with 50 yr old accountant sucking down coffee all day prior to hitting the court. Come on fall.

    It'll be no time before we are again discussing potato salad recipes for our Memorial Day barbeques.

    The heat is awful. I don't mind fall so much, but not a cold weather fan for sure..

    Do love football though..:D

    Tennis junkie, not buff.
    Fall here can still be high 80's and humid. I was in Houston prior to being transferred back 5 yrs ago and had a 65 degree xmas eve and it was the best tennis day of the year.

    There is an inverse relationship to age and the perceived passage of time.

    When one is young, time moves slowly. Remember when you were a kid how summers seemed to last forever?

    The older you get the more quickly time seems to move. Personally the last three years has gone by in a flash.

    Alas youth is wasted on the young.

    What do you mean, gone. It just got here. We finally had our first week of summer weather here.

    I am still in school, but classes are winding down. One of the classes is only 8 weeks, and the final is this week. Eeek!

    My personal private count down day is Dec 1st.
