    That photo of those fishing would make a great jigsaw puzzle!

    This is the time of year around here I love!

  • Summer's End September 23, 2017 (1:15 pm)

    Solstice occurred at 3.07AM on September 21, 2017. If today is the first day of Fall, the 23rd, what was September 22nd?

    • WSB September 23, 2017 (1:25 pm)

      No, it did not. For one, solstice is for winter/summer. Equinox is for fall/spring. The autumn equinox moment, as previously reported here, was 1:02 pm yesterday, Friday, September 22, 2017.

      Therefore, today’s the first FULL day of fall – TR
