September is nearly over. Schoolreally gets in full gear in September and Autumn officially kicks off between the 21st and the 24th. September wasthe 7thmonth of the Roman Calendar. The Latin word, Septemmeans 7 and that is the number of spots on a ladybug and that reminds me that it is time to take down my summer mailbox which has ladybugs on it. Years ago someone decided todedicate this really cool bug to the Virgin Mary andcalled it “The Bug of our Lady”, which was eventually shortened to the present name “ladybug”.
The familiar spots on a ladybug fade as the ladybug gets older andfor memy fadingcan be seen in the color of my mane, once golden brown now frosty and light…and that reminds me, if I may use another September analogy, FOOTBALL, that I am entering the third quarter of my life here if all goes well, but as we all know, anything can happen. Expect the unexpected like the Fall Season when one day is hot and then the next dayquite cool.
September is a good time to ramble and aboveI gave an example of my ability to ramble and as Yeats would muse, “From dream to dream and rhyme to rhymeI have ranged in rambling talk..”
