in a perfect world of yancies: Summer's Final Bow

Summer's Final Bow

Yes, I know those rainy day photos might have made you think of fall, and I know my last post mentioned autumn mists, but let's not forget that we still have a few sweet days of summer left!
Last Day at the Wading Pool
In fact, the opening bit of Melissa Clark's recent column is just about perfect:

The calendar may claim September as a summer month, but our national psyche insists that it’s fall. That’s probably because we associate going back to school with crunching leaves underfoot and bundling up in cozy sweaters, even when the temperatures are still in the 70s and the trees still green and full.

This is sad in a way, because in the Northeast September is usually the nicest of all the summer months...

Awfully nice here too of course!

And a nice time to celebrate the closing days of this wonderful summer.

Best summer class I've had the pleasure to teach:
In fact, simply one of the best classes I've taught.

Great experience!
Meanwhile, once fall's really here the new ballet season starts up. Check it out on their website. And yes, the woman sitting in the middle up above is featured on the home page of the Pacific Northwest Ballet :)

Fall's approach also means my summer of planning is almost over and the Northwest Ancient Philosophy Workshop is almost here!

Hope you like that website by the way!

Finally, you're probably wondering what Franklin's been up to lately. Well, he's learned how to climb into his chair:

And he's found his favorite section of the newspaper:
Checking Out the Car Ads
Car ads—figures :)

And had some fun checking out the scene at Flowers on 15th the other day:

Enjoy the rest of your summer, reader!
