With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Gotta love mornings - September and otherwise!
BONUS - September Morn - Neil Diamond
September Morn is the thirteenth studio album by the American singer Neil Diamond. Released in 1979, the album includes a disco version of the Motown classic "Dancing in the Street" and a remake of "I'm a Believer".
The title track was an international chart hit, and became Diamond's 30th Top 40 hit in the U.S. The song peaked at number 17 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, number 14 on the Cash Box Top 100, and number 7 on Record World. In Canada, it peaked at number 15. The song was a much bigger hit on the Adult Contemporary charts, reaching number two in the U.S. and spending two weeks at number one in Canada.

September Seems to Be All About Breakfast (And We're Not Mad About It) - "September is officially here. Along with our freshly resurrected obsession for anything related to apples, fall pies, and pumpkin spice lattes, (yes, they're back) it also seems to be the month of hardcore loving on breakfast. There is a clearly disproportionate number of arbitrary food holidays dedicated to the most important meal of the day in September, and we're not mad about it at all. Not at all."
From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/06/18:
|The man selling two-dollar
tickets at Monmouth Racetrack registered complete surprise when a horse
stepped up to the window, and asked to bet on himself.
"What's the matter?" snorted the horse. "Are you astonished that I can talk?"
"Not at all," said the man. "I'm surprised that you think you can win."
