M – It’s been an October for the ages. While the Detroit Tigers are in baseball’s post-season play, our Fancona-less Red Sox are not.
For the first time ever, it looks as though the New Hampshire Primary could take place before the leaves are off the trees. I have shrubs that typically flower in July, blooming again this month, for the second time this season. Do I dare put my snow blower for sale on Craigslist? Any takers? I’ll even include a full tank of gas. And a Josh Becket autographed poster.
Maybe we need to rename this month HOT-ober, to go along with other permutations of the tenth month. There’s Rocktober for metal heads. Jocktober for athletes. Crocktober for certain politicians. Socktober for foot fetish freaks. Guess I’ll stop there. With our luck, Hotober will quickly become SNOW-vember, just like that. You heard it here first.
