Hold on to summer

I did a story for The Buffalo News on stretching the summer. Like Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, it came from the heart, I will say that.

For the life of me I cannot see why people are in such a hurry for fall.

I love fall. Sometimes I think it is the time of year I love best. I always loved summer, but summer has gotten really noisy in the city. It feels good for everything to calm down, to cool down. Before you know it, it is time to bake fruitcakes, and you are heading toward Christmas, which as everyone knows is the most wonderful time of the year.

Thanksgiving to Christmas, is there anything better?


You miss some of the magic if you start it too early. You must needs hold off. And as long as the temps are in the 80s and 90s, that is God telling you not to crack out those black tights.

Instead ride the Viper at Darien Lake, as I did on Saturday with our photographer Sharon Cantillon. I took the photo up above. Sharon filmed this video which is on YouTube and sure to go viral. Taat is me you hear laughing. Hahahahaha!

Continue to wear white. Heck, it's hot.

Continue to complain about the heat.

Fall will be here soon enough and that is when we crack out the pumpkin lattes. I am of a mind to do some Christmas caroling this year too. Who is in?

We will find out before you know it!
