Happy Autumn!!!

Just wanted to wish you all a
Splendid AUTUMN!!!
I have to say this is my favorite time of the year...
I love the smells, the beautiful colors, the crisp cool air.
It's simply the very best time of the year in Indiana.
I do hope you're able to get out and enjoy this fun time of year at some point because before you know it it will be gone.

Autumn, Queen of Year
by Winifred Sackville Stoner, Jr. 
When the pumpkins are so yellow
And the vines with grapes abound,
When the melons are so mellow
And the nuts fall to the ground;
When persimmons lose their bitters,
And the apples are so red;
When we love to eat corn fritters
Since the roasting ears have fled;
When vacation days are over
And the children go to school,
They no longer play in clover,
But much learn "Arithmos-rule,"
When weird Hallowe'en's most naughty elves
With gnomes and sprites appear,
While fat Thanksgiving fills the shelves -
I also wanted to remind you about the
