October is here, and with it, there is the tang of Fall in the air. At least for now. Santa Ana winds are expected in a day or two, it will warm up again, and the fire danger will increase. October would be a lovely month in southern California if it weren’t for the hot winds and fires.
This is the time of year I think of “Raymond Chandler’s “Red Wind”, a teriffic short story, worth re-reading (and if you’ve not read it, I envy you that first time experience).
While the wife is hard at work on a Fall-themed quilt, I’ve the usual Saturday chores and errands to take care of, but there are also some interesting football games today. Plus we have an appropriate movie to watch:
We’ve had terrible ant problems this year, in spite of all efforts the things keep invading the house. So it seemed appropriate to get Netflix to send us this film. I haven’t seen it in years.
New Series of Posts: Saturday Soundtrack
I’m starting a new series of posts. I participate in the Friday Forgotten Books posts (see yesterday’s post) but I’ve decided to post a Saturday Soundtrack each week. I hope you enjoy reading my comments, and listening to the CD if you have – or buy – it, as much as I do listening to my candidates each week.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
