Fall weather and memories(0)

September 4, 2008

The fall season is so short in West Texas, but it’s my favorite time of year. It is perfect for days and nights spent outdoors. It’s in-between the heat of summer and the cold of winter and is gone in a few weeks. But during the fall, the fall reminds me of many wonderful times.

Fall weather and memories

‘I’m with the band’

I have many fond memories of my years in band, but not one of them starts out with “so I was marching with my saxophone…”
