As I look around some of my favorite blogs it appears everyone is writing about Fall and colder temperatures either present or in the offing. It feels a little chilly coming in my open window today too so I guess I'd better check the weather forecast.
A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH NORTHERN ARIZONA TODAY
BRINGING STRONG SOUTHWEST WINDS ALONG WITH RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS.
Ohhh! Can winter be far behind? The sun is still shining but weakly and there are a lot of thin clouds up in the sky.
Let's see. Where has SWMBO put my sweaters? Time for the turtlenecks to take over. And, yes, I do still wear turtlenecks, mostly black ones. I remember once a couple of decades ago when a young intern in my office stared at my beard and my black turtleneck and asked "Are you a beatnik?" Guess I was a bit of one back in the late 50's. I don't know what I'd be called now. Maybe an ageing hippy!
I had to go to The Google to look up whether there should be an e in ageing or not, as aging. Neither looks right to me but The Google says "ageing" (with the e) is associated with British and Australian English and "aging" (without the e) is more used in American and Canadian English. I'm an American who grew up within 50 miles of Canada. But since I've been blogging I've made many friends in Britain and Australia. So now I don't know how to spell it. Maybe I'll just go with my standby: an "older" hippy.
Or is that hippie?
Well . . . now you know how blog posts are made. From nothing. To nothing.
