First the weather, now the leaves. I was on the way back from home from Asheville and noticed that the leaves, especially in the higher elevations, like Asheville, have begun to turn. There are even a few here in Charlotte that have gotten the message, too. I imagine that by the end of next week, it will all pretty much be done. I noticed, too, that there were a number of Florida license plates to be seen. Damned leaf peepers…

The other day I had a chuckle when I saw this sign. Why? Because Pedro and I are silly when we get together, quoting movie lines, saying silly things and this was one of our favorites.

The furthest east that you could get from Charlotte, along I-26, was Columbia. During my 12 years in Charlotte, this was the first time that I’ve…
