This is the end.


Gone before you know it.

Over and done.


A September to remember.

Because it rained.


Banishing the burn ban.

And raising our spirits.

And the grass under our feet, too.

Farewell, 100-degree days.

Even if we do hit 90.

It ain’t a hundred.

Time for the Texas Weather Two-Step.

Wear a jacket.

Take off the vest.

Put on a sweater.

Pull it off.

Find the t-shirt.

Find the sweatshirt.

Cotton or wool.

Light or heavy.

One layer or two.

Cold in the morning.

Hot in the afternoon.

Cooler in the evening.

Open the windows.

Pull up the covers.

Throw off the blanket.

Turn on the heat.

Turn on the fan.

The A/C, the heat, the fan, A/C, heat, fan…

Turn it updownoffon.

Now it’s muggy.

Now it’s not.

Stars are out.

Moon’s not.

Might be an Indian summer.

Might not.

Crape myrtles are blooming.

(Only two months late.)

Crazy-makin’ weather is what this is.

Perfect for making a crazy quilt.

Get what you need at Currey’s Fabrics.

Or Hinckley’s too.

Join other quilters Monday nights.

As Great-aunt Jimmie said:

“As you sew, so shall you rip!”


That’s Mason.
