After a lovely, temperate start to the summer, it’s gotten downright nasty in Chicago these past few weeks. We’ve seem heat, humidity and the types of thunderstorms that only make it seem muggier. So while I sympathize with the boy in this strip and his desire to keep summer vacation going just a few weeks longer, I’m also having trouble believing that fall is truly around the corner. And truth be told, summer isn’t the season I long to hold onto; rather, autumn, with its gorgeous colors and its promise of cold dreary months to come is the time of year that most brings to mind Goethe’s immortal quote: “Stop, moment! You are beautiful!”
