Did you feel it this morning?
For the first time, fall was in the air here. Maybe not literally, but at least possibly. A whiff of wood smoke, a temperature that lifts moisture from soil to nose, a stirring of all things wild including emotions, foretelling the upcoming hunting season.
The dogs were energized on their runs, moving with an urgency I hadn’t seen for a while. Cooler temperatures meant longer exercise periods for everyone, and while it was hot again by mid-afternoon, a west wind carried fall onto the prairie again before a cookout dinner that required a sweater.
Are you ready?
