1. Talk Like a Pirate Day, of course, but that was pointed out.

2. My brother’s birthday Saturday. He got to eat beef and quote lots of Family Guy. And he has an even BIGGER lawn tractor (so big that he likes to drop “lawn” and just say “tractor”), so I think he’s pretty happy.

3. Friday was the anniversary of when Keats wrote his ode, “To Autumn” in 1819. You can read it here.

And today is the equinox. I guess summer is now officially over.
