Dog Eat Doug (11/18/09)

November may be many things, but glorious is not one of them. The month starts by plunging us into darkness an hour earlier than we’re accustomed to, then becomes progressively colder, windier, and rainier. The trees shed their bounty of red, yellow, and orange leaves in favor of a gaunt, brambly look that will last until spring. By the time the month is over, we’re so spent that we practically beg for turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and football while trying to think of something to be thankful for. Fall is my favorite season, but it’s final days make me grumpy about the long winter to come.
