By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

Ladder jokes

Here are the jokes I shared in today's Live Chat session on Skype:-

Micky was working so hard carrying bricks up and down a ladder that his work mates started to get worried about him. ‘Why are you working so hard Micky?’ they asked. “Don’t worry,’ Micky replied, ‘I’ve got them fooled, it’s the same load of bricks each time.’

    The party

    Why did the man bring a ladder to a party?

    He heard the drinks were on the house.

    How do you get down from a ladder?

    You don’t get down from a ladder, you get down from a duck.

    And for @aladdin -

    I fell off a 50 foot ladder yesterday. Good thing I was on the bottom rung!

    I’ve broken my head finding out the second meaning in your remark «You'd have to come and hijack our conversation about ladders» of today's Live Chat session on Skype. But why can’t I see this smart questions?
