Happy Friday! Happy Fall! Congratulations for surviving the summer of 2020! Hopefully even as the days grow shorter the outlook will grow brighter. Don’t stop be-leafing in the wonder of fall!
I would tell you my autumn joke but you probably wouldn’t fall for it.
Did you hear about the scarecrow who was outstanding in his field?
Is it true that the vehicle of choice for a scarecrow is an Autumn-mobile?
Is it true that leaves fall off of trees in the Autumn because of nostalgia as they are simply trying to get back to their roots?
Would you call a pepper in late autumn a little chili?
Did the apple pie cry because its peelings were hurt?
Do the leaves turn colors at the same time each year because the process is autumnated?
If a tree deserted the forest at the end of fall would it be considered absent without leaves?
Did you know that, in addition to migratory birds, lions also move at the end of summer? It is true that the pride goeth before the fall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall – hope you do too!
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
And myriad leaves, on which the Summer wrote
Her blushing farewell, at my feet were strown.
~Albert Laighton (1829–1887), “In the Woods,” c.1859
