'Tis Autumn In New York

Geoffrey and Sabiha Arend and Lulu

     Walking Lulu in the park near our home, I noticed last Monday that the big grey bubble enclosures now cover the tennis courts, a sure sign Summer '21 is gone.
     Tough luck for the dog as she now can no longer feast on the bright green tennis balls that lay in fair territory in the open grass beyond the courts.
     But with these early days of Autumn in New York here again upon us are those glorious moments of Indian Summer, punctuated with days that are cold on the shoulder as the days get shorter, leaves are falling and soon will come the snows followed by small children on sleds.
     But first we have baseball finals here in the U. S., in a season where The Boys of Summer have decided to hang on for dear life all the way into November.
     I shall stop listening to baseball and watch Geoffrey II on his new TV show "Goliath" where he plays opposite some great actors including Billie Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern, JK Simmons and others.
     Baseball just completed 162 games in a season that began in April. One joy of baseball are all those games for all those months. In May you think—hell there is still June, July, August and September to play and for a real fan, that prospect is just tremendous.
     But playing baseball after October 31 and Halloween is just nuts. They should shorten the season to where it was sixty years ago when I was 20, and have the whole ball of wax wrapped up—World Series and all by October 10th at the latest.
     I'll miss our neighbors Joe, Dora and Alexa across the street, who packed up and moved to Florida, two weeks ago.
     Took a long look at their empty home and it stared back looking a bit forlorn, in silence with the shades all drawn.
     I imagine that people from New York moving to Florida should make friends easily because so many New Yorkers are already there.
     Moving forward here are some old musical friends that feel like October the way it ought to be! The playlist here.
