The Week in Review - It's Only August

Good morning from Maine where the sun is shining on nice August morning. It's only the first week of August, but I have already spotted a couple of leaves changing color. That's always my visual reminder that my favorite season is just around the corner. I'm not sure if it is because my birthday is in the fall or if it is the just the crisp fall air, but I've always enjoyed autumn. The start of the new school year always fills me with hope too.

Now I can hear some of you saying, "it's only August, Richard!" And you're right, so go outside and enjoy the rest of your summer before school starts.
