What I Miss Most About Fall

When I smell the fall air, it brings back so many memories of my childhood. Growing up I lived in the country. My parents house was the first built on the street. I am an only child so I had to entertain myself. I remember my dad had this big leaf picker. It had a box on the back that the leaves would go into and I would sit back there and play in the leaves before he dumped them out in the woods. I also had a Bassett Hound and would take him for long walks down the street. I would play outside all day long as there wasn't a thing such as internet or playstations or such and you had to actually get up to change TV channels. You didn't have to worry about a weirdo kidnapping you either. The fall was a time to have fun and play and sit inside on cold, chilly ,fall nights. I loved going outside with my parents to burn leaves. I can still smell the smell.

Now I live in the suburbs and I kind of feel sorry for my sons as we don't have trees with a lot of leaves to play in and they just don't play outside like I used to as someone has to be out with them to watch them. They want there computers and gaming systems and such. Sometimes I take them to the park just to get out and play like I used to. Do they appreciate it? Who knows? Maybe they will one day miss their fall day as I have?

I know I can't turn back time but sometimes I wish I could just for a moment.
