Rise and Shine --- Biting the apple

Good Morning and welcome to Monday in the summer!

Well, it might feel like summer, but it is still mid-October so these nice temperatures won't last forever. It's best to enjoy them when you can.
By the way, driving around Sunday (being a Sunday driver?), it was interesting to see the variable prices at the gas pump. Here, prices were anywhere from $3.05 to $3.19. Go a bit north and you have to add about a dime to to the price.
Don't they all get the gas from the same place? Shouldn't the prices be the same all over? Somebody smarter than me can probably figure this out.
Anyway, the best part of this time of year, besides the cool Halloween decorations that are popping up all over, has to be the apples.
There's nothing better than biting into a crisp, sweet apple during the month of October. Sure, now markets carry different fruits all year round. You can get a pineapple or watermelon in the middle of winter thanks to those trucks that drive way to fast on the highways.
Still, local apples in the fall are about the best that can be had. Just think about how much better a meal becomes with an apple pie at the end. How about some apple crisp or baked apples? Nothing better.
The best thing about apples, though, is how they are portable. You can eat one while driving, walking, sitting, taking the train, just about everywhere.
Hey, there has to be something after a long weekend.
Of course, there's always this:
