I remember…Fall weather

   Posted by: John   in I Remember...

Well, the title is a little bit of a misnomer because Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the colors, the cooler weather after a hot summer, the fall rain, the harvest…lots of wonderful things in the Fall.

I do remember having this huge oak tree in the front yard of the house I grew up in. It’s still there, but seems to have been trimmed back some.  Years ago, there was a ton of ivy that wound it’s way up the trunk and covered the bottom third of the branches.  It was a big tree, lots of leaves.  I remember a few times when the leaves had been raked into a huge pile and we would crawl in them and hide. Nice thing about leaves like that is that they are not super messy. They don’t stick to you and don’t cover you in grass clippings. They are light and you can breathe when you are under the pile. It was a country road, so no people walking by on the sidewalk to scare. So, it was a lot of just goofing around and pretending.
