Sunday afternoon, and it is rainy-drizzly and quite fall-like. I’m wearing a long-sleeved shirt and cozy cardigan with shorts, eking out summer as long as I possibly can. This was yesterday, celebrating the last of summer weather and the 100th Anniversary of Franklin High School. We’ve been a hop, skip, and a jump away for more than fifteen years but had never set foot in the building until then. Howdy-do Quakers! How beautiful and bright eyed are the girls at the window? And the trucks! Well, you know how much I love them. There was also a 1956 Cadillac like Elvis drove, but it will get its own post a little later. A real beauty!

We rode our bikes along the Springwater Corridor out to Gresham (24 miles round trip – toot, toot!), leisurely pedaling, hellooo-ing fellow riders and walkers, talking to the cute black bunny who did not give a whit about us, parking a time or two to glean the last of the ripe blackberries growing along the path (they were fabulous, Martha!), and, of course, taking plenty of snaps, as the hubster calls them. We stopped for a treat on Main Street, a scrumptious peanut butter chocolate and perfectly tart lemon cupcake at Bella Cupcake. If you are ever out that way, I highly recommend them!

Sayonara Summer 2013, you were mighty fine…
