“To say it was a beautiful day would not begin to explain it. It was that day when the end of Summer intersects perfectly with the start of Fall”.
Happy September RDTAC:
I hope each of you had a wonderful and restful Summer. With the turning of the calendar, also comes the beginning of the Fall season and time to meet again.
