"Oh hello, welcome autumn you are finally here! Thank you for giving us a break from that muggy, stuffy,
yucky hot-concrete brutal summer weather in New York City. The crisp fresh-air and the smell of cinnamon and other spices everywhere... reminds me of apple picking and a peaceful hikes on the Adirondacks Mountains,
ending the day with baking a fresh apple-pies on a chilly cozy Sunday night. Oh welcome autumn and make sure you treat us right! " -I.S.
