Tracksuits on the other hand..

Well it's important to state Gogo. I don't want the good folks at Boards.ie to think I'm a lunatic who goes from poetic to crass without noticing. I want them, you, to know that I go from poetic to crass on purpose for the sake of trying to be funny.

The slippery leaves are an, unwelcome, “pitfall” but, aside from that, it’s a pretty cool part of the year.

This autumn is unusual in that you can actually experience it for lack of wind and rain.

And by the way, has anyone noticed the worse the virus gets the better the weather gets! I don't recall an October in my life like this for sunshine except abroad.

Another thing I love about autumn is the squirrels, how they bounce from one place to the next, foraging food for their family. They don't know what the future holds in the short term; they just know winter is coming and their family need to eat.

I knelt down near one in my driveway this morning and realised we aren't that different, man and squirrel.

As he tentatively moved closer to me, I noticed that his beady eyes had hope in them. He knew he could trust me, that I would never hurt him. I shuffled the remnants of a popcorn bag on to my hand, the scent of the corn and the kernels drawing him closer again. When he got within arms reached, I grabbed him and threw him at least 50 feet away and shouted NEVER come back here.

Thank you Manhattan.

Most favourite is possibly may because it can be roasting but still springlike or October because it's crispy and still get sun but it's cold but not too grey.
Hard to beat the first smell of spring also..

Aussie, South American, and African girls look delectable in lycra at this time of year (actually year round) and they're heading into Summer.

Your story telling is improving, am looking forward to the next one. I think for the ending if when you reached for him, you could have walloped him with hammer, and yell hammer 89 just became hammer 90.

If this is not instant recognisable and you have any interest in SciFi then stop what you are doing right now and check out Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds


Forever Autumn

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now you're not here
I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
And one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them
Now you're not here

Like the sun through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

Through autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way
You always loved this time of year
Loose fallen leaves lie undisturbed now
Cos you're not here
Cos you're not here
Cos you're not here

Like the sun through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes
As if to hide a lonely tear
My life will be forever autumn
Cos you're not here
Cos you're not here
Cos you're not here
Cos you're not here
Cos you're not here
