Is budgielover/Jan still around ATP? I don't think I've seen her post in a long time ... or maybe I'm just not on the same forums.

I'm soooo over the heat and humidity of summer. It would be lovely if we could get some some nice, pleasant autumn temperatures but I know if autumn happens here, it probably won't be for another couple of months. Sad

I looked at her profile, her last post was June 2015.

@Trish, sorry I messed up the title, any chance you can edit to include "Fall"?

I'm not ready for the W word either. We get freezes in Winter which causes a whole other box of problems for me. Anything below 70º is too cold. Rolling on the floor laughing

Sssshhh, I think some of the people in this forum are snowbirds. They might feel alienated.

Some have 2nd homes here and they spend money in our area, while we Floridians vacation somewhere else on winter time. Whistling

You might be referring to me here, however, I don't mind what you call me. I think of myself not as a snowbird but a "sometimes bird". We usually make at least three and sometimes four trips during the year and we are way overdue to go down for several weeks.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.
