. Well, here we are, already two thirds of the way through September and I am still going through beach withdrawal. I know it does me no good to look back, but this summer just went by way too quickly. I had to take the beach chairs and umbrella out of the back of the Nitro Tour Bus to make room for amps and equipment but instead of stowing them away in the storage closet I made Elise stick them in the trunk of her Mazda just in case. It's probably wishful thinking but just a couple of more hot days would be so nice, I am just not mentally ready to start wearing socks yet. And is anyone else bothered, like I am, about how early it gets dark at night? I need to find some positive thoughts about moving through this Fall Season. So here goes;
For starters, the kids are back in school. That has to be a plus for any parents with school age children. Of course that also means Elise is back to working full time and I am spending a few days a weeks filling in as a sub.......instead of being at the beach.
Secondly, the MacIntosh apples are ready at Parlee Farms in Tyngsborough. I like apples. The thing is , I like nectarines even more, and those just aren't even close to as good as they are at the beginning of the summer when I can spend time.......at the beach.
Thirdly, Football season is in full swing. This is genuinely a good thing. But the Red Sox are also still in the mix, and I do love baseball, so watching the Boys of Summer still reminds me of those warm nights..... at the beach...........( I'm starting to think this is not working taking my mind of the beach.
So tomorrow night I won't be at the beach, but I will be appearing at the 110 Grill in Chelmsford Massachusetts from 7:00 until 10:00 p.m. . Stop by and we'll raise a toast to say goodbye to summertime. Maybe a couple of Jimmy Buffett tunes can work their way onto the playlists.
