Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Pottering around the Port Swill Manor demesne around midday today, Ol’ Robbo definitely noticed the change in the sunlight on the trees promising that summah is getting ready to pack things in and that the year is moving on. (It’s all in the angle of the sun.)

I always find this realization greatly satisfying, perhaps because I dislike hot weather so much, but more because it’s the first clue that autumn is on its way, and as long-time friends of the decanter know, autumn is very much Ol’ Robbo’s favorite season.

Of course, I’ve not much to complain about this year, as our summah has really been quite pleasant. No triple-digit days at all that I can recall, and relatively few even over 90. Ol’ Robbo will take that any time. (Of course, I’m sure Our Betters will tell my my lying eyes are all wrong about this.)

By the bye, another delight this year: The two hummingbirds that have taken up station at my feeder have been at it so much that they actually almost drained it this week. It is not often that Ol’ Robbo has to charge that feeder a second time over the course of the season.
