Today--a most unusual Oklahoma day! It was lovely! It was like early, early Fall when the remnants of late Summer's warmth can still be felt but the bristling hotsy totsy fire of late August is absent. There was a breeze. Windows and doors were left open. Air conditioning was turned off. THAT is the most remarkable detail of all. One feels relief to see summer coming to an end in the humid, suffocating mid-west, unlike in the far north when the last days of summer bring feelings of regret and a shudder as folks hunker down for winter.
