WEATHER FORECAST

Today: Clear. High in the low 60s.
    So it’s fall, and all the leaves are turning and falling…

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Low in the mid 40s.
    Instead of raking them up, I think we should collect them into a big
pile and jump in them.

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy. High in the mid 60s.
    We work too hard. Regression to childhood is exactly what we need.
