October, My Favorite Month

We finally made it past summer! It wasn't really that bad if you stayed indoors after 10am until around 6 or 7pm and didn't have to run errands, wash your car or work out in the yard.

October is such a lovely month - cooler, wind blowing, leaves falling and some nice quiet time before it gets cold and crazy.

We have one sibling born in October, the youngest of 12. He was born the night I arrived back home after spending a year in Chicago for cancer treatment. I'll never forget it. I had written to Mom telling her I hoped she would wait until I got home before she had the baby. She was in labor when my train pulled into the station and I got to be at the hospital when Timmy was born, October 19, 1964.
