You see, in the SOUTH fall meant pretty colored trees, lots of fallen pinecones, a school holiday for the State Fair of Texas, anything & everything fried, our beloved YAMBOREE [only the best small-town fair,rodeo,barn-dance ever], perfect & brisk 70 degree weather [finally no humidity], with an occasional 90 degree day :), crawfish boils, octoberfest @ sixflags, the best time of year for an outdoor concert, haunted houses, lotssss of FOOTBALL games, homecoming, not to mention the homecoming mums the size of Texas :), our family reunion, bonfires [ but just for looks cause its too dang warm still], b-b-q's, and most of all.... great friends & even greater family.
So ya, in all I would say, fall in the Louisiana & Texas beats fall in Idaho anyday. So why do I still love it here?... This culture may be completely different than I have been accustomed to, my southern ways of talking peoples ears off may still annoy some people, and my loss of an accent, after 5 years of living here still makes me want to cry. But nothing...... can beat what we've got goin on here.
