Well, the Windsor Fair is here. Since I was a kid, the fair has marked the end of summer, despite what the calendar says. Back to school, close the pool, store the boat, sell the goat. Okay, that last one was just complete the rhyming thing I had going.
Once Mac Dickson started saying that fair season means the summer is ending, that's all I can think of. I remember though, not too many years ago, the Pittston Fair happened in late June, right after summer vacation started. Boy, summer must have seemed short to him back then!
