  2. My plans for the fall are to fly to Las Vegas to visit my son and his wife, since they moved there recently. Then my sister will drive from near Palm Springs in California to pick me up and I'll visit her as well. I'm really looking forward to a fun vacation.

  17. I love the fall, even though our fall, isn't much different than our summer, or winter, or spring for that matter. Maybe I love the 'idea of fall." We may go visit my stepson who lives in Indiana. Maybe there it would feel more like fall.
