Fall Color13.jpg

Don’t you just love this time of the year? Our growing season is ending, days are shorter, and there’s a crispness in the air, all clues leading us into the winter ahead. This is when Mother Nature bursts into technicolor. The bronze and golden leaves invite us to come outdoors and take in their beauty. We all must rejoice, even older folks like me. Not to romp through huge piles of fallen leaves, like little children, but to exercise our minds and add to the gaiety of the season the gift of laughter.

In these times of anxiety, it isn’t easy to find something to laugh about. Years ago your friendly neighborhood newspaper offered tidbits of humor, cartoons, rhymes, and community boosting words of encouragement. Readers looked for clever thoughts for the day. You needed funny things to think about on cloudy days as well as when autumn colors shone brightly. These bright sunny days are not enough to brighten our spirits.
