I have to wait nine months before I can plant tomatoes again? There's no more hope of feeding my family off the land this year? They won't give me a beach sticker even if I do find my registration? I went the ENTIRE SUMMER with no beach sticker?* That was the last show at the Beachcomber? It's too late to get a sitter and try to catch something? What do you mean the ice cream shops are closing for the season? What am I supposed to doooooooo?
Can I write this entire post with nothing but questions?
I've been so excited about school buses and fall weather, I forgot that there are things going by the wayside. It is clearly time for our last ditch attempt at making summer not break up with us. It never works, of course, but at least we'll give it our best effort. We must:
- go bumper boating, stat
- have a beach fire
- have a driveway fire
- eat out before all the restaurants close
- walk on the flats
- sail at least one more time
- figure out how to set our tide clock, for crying out loud
* I love the beach at off-hours. And we've been living at ponds this year. Don't call DSS. I haven't been neglecting my kids' water requirements.
