October asks for longer Indian summer days. Turns up the heat one last time. Takes a bike ride through a pumpkin patch. Buys new fishing gear. Swaps sandals for sneakers. Sails through sunny days. Shares hot cocoa on cozy nights. Glows beneath the Harvest Moon. Mingles among the stars. Picks the best Halloween costume. Sees the first glimmering frost. Savors those Fabulous 50’s. Celebrates this Ever-so-Happy time of Year!
