2. For me summer is over when the Albuquerque Balloon
Fiesta Balloon Fiesta takes place. Just as summer starts when Gomer sings "Back Home In Indiana"

7. The big oak outside my bedroom window has started dropping acorns.
Squirrels running around with nuts in their mouths.

10. When I see pumpkin pie liqueur at the local liquor store.
Also, when the air becomes crisp, the days become sunny, and the smell of decaying leaves is in the air.

I love it.

Taking down the hummingbird feeder

13.  When the daytime temp gets below 90deg, and nights drop below 78deg.
As for brown leaves, we have had them for several months at least. Lack of rain is killing the trees rapidly.

14. I can breathe again. If only for a brief while.
Until the heat has to be turned on.

15. I feel like cooking again
Its still hot here in s. texas, but not numbingly hot. I made a nice chicken soup on Friday when we had a short cold front. I made some biscuits Saturday morning. I made a big skillet of fajitas last night and had that with hot tortillas.

Just start feeling like eating more meat. Can't wait for turkey. I'll eat turkey anytime of the year, but it is just too hot to turn on the oven, even with AC.

21. Hearing the geese heading south
I live next to a river, one of their stop-overs. Every spring. Every fall. Noisy things. It sounds exactly like this:
