It’s September the Oneth! (Updated)

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Noted Curmudgeons

Boomer & I are enjoying our chipped & well-used “Codger Collectible (January ’07 Edition) Mugs” of organically &Boomer, Jay & Daisy on Jay’s Back Porch ©2007 Jay Merton shade-grown, fair-trade, Guatemalan-Roast coffee, and enjoying a late summer Saint Paul, Minnesota morning on my back porch.

Yeah, Jay, and your over-sized and totally ripped-off version of my replica “Pruett’s Pig Powders” thermometer tells us the temperature is 65ºF, and I can plainly see that the sky is partly cloudy. And for now, and through Monday, no rain is expected!

This should be a good weekend for the Minnesota State Fair—the harbinger of fall for kids everywhere in the state. Moderate temps, no rain—the place should be packed!

True—for this last week I’ve had to find work-arounds to avoid any of the streets leading to the Fair, Jay. Couple that with the tragic loss of the I35W bridge, and traffic can be miserable.

Around here folks, we don’t wait for mid-September for fall to begin, it begins, conveniently—I think—just when the Fair ends. The kids go back to school, and we start our preparations for our too-long winters, and certainly enjoy the cooler, drier weather of the season.

Thanks for reminding me, Jay—I’ve gotta get the snow-blower fixed.

You’ve had all summer to do that!

Can you spell “p-r-o-c-r-a-s-t-i-n-a-t-e,” Jay?

I can spell it—better yet, though—I sometimes practice it—if I get around to it!

There’s a point somewhere here, for why we are posting this morning, right? Some sort of announcement?

“swigs!” ©2007 Merton & BoardmanWell, sure—we completed the remodeling of cyber-Ines Hedegus-Garcia’s “Danger Bay” cyber-business! See:

That’s cool, but there was something else. (more)

Morning Gents! Oh how I miss the sweet scent of fall in the air, the leaves turning and falling. Don't get me wrong, I love FL. There are just some things about the beautiful north you can't get down here :).

Fall begins with the ending of our fair too - as soon as the GDS Fair in Newfoundland is finished the kids go back to school, it's September - and probably the most beautiful month of the year.  September and October are a bittersweet time for me  - it's my favorite time of the year in the Poconos but it is also leading up to the long, cold winter.  If I were a skier, I'd love it I guess.

Sarah: Thank you! You must be the first. Just so you know what the 1st graphic on our product line actually looks like I’ve included it in this comment. We’ll probably run this one until year’s end. The cyber-Sarah is standing atop the pilot house with Capt. Molly, cyber Maggie, Cyber-Ines and cyber-Daisy.

Lysa: Yep—there’s no place like home!

Karen: I LOVE a fresh snow-fall. But autumn is my favorite season.

I LOVE September!  In New York growing up, the first chill would be in the air.  Now that I'm in Miami, it sneaks up on me and I don't even notice it.  Wow, so it is September already! 

I promise to go check Ines' business later.  I've got to leave for work now!

Jay - I actually look forward to the first few snow storms.  I really don't even mind the winter if it wouldn't overstay it's welcome.  If it would pack up and go back where it came from by mid-March, I'd be happy!

I can't wait for fall to get here and break these 90 degree temps. By the way seeing as today is oneth tomorrow must be the tooth.

Bob: Not gonna happen. It's always summer in Danger Bay (mostly because I don't have the time nor inclination to redraw that much stuff)!

James: I thought it was the "toost."

Jay, It seems like I just finished reading your blogs about all the snow on the ground, and it is almost time again for that.

By the way did you use "Lime Stone" colors in designing "Swigs" :)

George: That's because snow came very late in the winter, part of the drought cycle we're in. As to the color of swigs!...
