Not really a blue Monday, but some traditions are too good to ignore. And speaking of totty, thanks once again to The Other McCain for the Rule Five links! Make sure to check out the extensive Rule Five linkfest.
No links or news today – off here in a few minutes to enjoy a (for once) work-free Labor Day. But it’s worth noting that here we are on the first of September already, in the ninth month of a year that seems like it has only just begun. Where the hell does the time go? Upon a time it seemed the summer lasted forever, or as close as made no difference.
Within the next few weeks the aspen will be turning in the high country. Elk will start to bugle, the sage country mulies will be shedding antler velvet, and gangs of yearling grouse will be fattening on berries and grasshoppers, making them toothsome and ripe for the frying pan.
The year may be going by too quickly, but there is one consolation – some of the best eating of the year is coming up.
