What do we want in any body but the world?

It's getting late in the summer, and autumn leaf color is appearing here and there. The dry ground also helps in coloring tree foliage, as there have been long periods of no rain this summer.

I have read about 35 books during the four-week long vacation, most of which were rather light reading, with one or two more serious books included. Did I watch tv during the vacation? Well, one or two hours, but that was all. And there was a lot of walking, a moderate amount of swimming, and a bit too much car driving. We visited two amusement parks, a zoo, a spa, and traveled all the way to Lapland. Not a bad summer vacation.
