Leaves are falling all around/Time I was on my way.

Ramble On, Led Zeppelin

Fall is my favorite season of the year. Its football and Oktoberfest beers. The leaves changing into wonderful colors, giving way to nice, cooler temperatures that kill off pesky insects. Halloween and Thanksgiving are my two favorite holidays: horror movies and candy, pumpkin pie and turkey all annual traditions.

Not to mention talligating, the start of basketball season, hoodies and blue jeans, jerseys and stocking caps. Too bad this season is so short-the weather is a nice mix of warm and cold. Not to mention Indian Summer and the pretty glistening twilight before night settles in early. Movie blockbusters give way to more adult fare, Oscar season quietly descending upon us. This is the most wonderful time of the year.
