First Of The Fall Winds

 







The first fall winds are blowing now. The night before last, they came. I was sound asleep with the window open, when summer decided to leave for the year. It’d been a warmer day, and the cooler night was welcome… until the fall blew in. The breeze went from refreshingly cool to cold in seconds. Mort came upstairs to be closer to us… high winds and foul weather unsettle him. Soon it’ll be time for our young men to take to the fields, and us older farts to stoke up the wood stoves. Valhalla is where you make it.

  1. That is an awesome time of the year, the 1st cool front blowing through south Texas was timed approximately late October. A cool wind with lower humidity (we are next to Gulf of Mexico with high humidity levels) - so nice !

  2. Heading to Brownsville TX this morning for the opening of dove season tomorrow . I look forward to this day every year! Shorts and camo t-shirt hunting weather, along with hot barrel shooting. I love it!

  3. Love this time of year. It’s been fall here for a month or so already; about 1/2 the leaves are down... woke up to frost this morning..

  4. The cool crisp air stirs the primitive in us. Now I can't hunt any more but like an old dog I really want to. Thank the LORD for all the precious memories and all of you youngsters get out and make some memories-life is short.
