Farewell to Summer

Congrats to the Locals!
You’ve made it through the season.
Did you let your hair down
Or act within reason?

It isn’t too late
To squeeze in some fresh air.
But with Jerry in town
Watch out for flying chairs.

Alive@5 came
Some rocked and some mocked.
Rell considered what to do
Since the budget got socked.

Highgrove’s not done
But Trump’s nearly finished,
Still my property values
Are greatly diminished.

We roamed with the animals
And beat with the street.
Despite the economy,
Saw new places to eat.

Stamford Talk profiled
Marriott’s legal defense.
Did the best pizza win?
We’ll debate it long since.

Streets of Stamford kept us up
On the news that’s fit to eat.
Although it truly sucks
Summer’s just about complete.

I can't believe summer is (almost) over! My mother in law couldn't believe people were eating outdoors last night in the heat, but I said, it's because people realize summer is ending and they want to make the most of the outdoor weather!
