The cooler, crisp nights are a sign that autumn will soon be here, but I always know it’s coming when local bakeries and restaurants start offering pumpkin treats. Pumpkin is really what autumn is all about to me. And pumpkin picking with my family is an autumn tradition.

I was assigned to chimney security today at middle school in the State of Washington, to prevent Betsy DeVoss from trying to climb in that way when she couldn't get in the front door. Protesters abounded below while I rode shotgun on the roof. We're with Montclair all the way. Glad you're here MontClairVoyant!
