The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer
Fall…Its here…The first touch of Autumn.
The First Day of fall starts as the sun is directly on the Equator of the Earth and the hours of day and night will be equal.
The first day of fall marks the start of shorter days and longer nights as well.
So, if you are in the Northern Hemisphere countries, a very happy fall to you!
On September 21, 2014, I was lucky enough to spend my Sunday afternoon at the Auman Orchard in Moore County, North Carolina. I was there for an Ice Cream Social to support Clay Aiken as a Candidate for U.S. Congress – District 2. I had the opportunity to talk to so many interesting people as I helped collect donations, pass out Clay For North Carolina stickers and just listen to people who were excited to support Clay.
The Ice Cream Social was an exciting and successful event. I was told they expected between 100 to 150 people…instead, there were over 200 people there. And yes, the fresh homemade Peach Ice Cream was as good as it sounds! What a treat.
Clay’s speech was excellent. He presented himself and his political ideas with passion, humor, intelligence and determination. He even asked some questions of the audience to make the presentation an inter-active event.
SueReu was kind enough to share some of her pictures of the event with CANN. I hope that if you use them, you will credit her. She was asked by one of the hostesses of the event to take lots of pictures.
Now, really….Why didn’t Clay win this election???
