Greetings, salutations, and welcome to the end of the line.  A cold wind
whips the landscape, the tops of the trees have started to blaze with color,
empty school buses meander down our streets, and for one brief moment we
stand between the time when the tourists leave and the leaf peepers arrive.
Welcome to the end of summer.

 

And what better way to celebrate this moment in time than pulling out that
old comfy flannel, preparing the taste-buds for the onslaught of pumpkin
flavored everything, and finding some groovy items to get for your beloved
patrons.  

 

My two hot picks this month are “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” in any
format (and despite being one of an unending flood of superhero movies, it
literally made me cry so
 yeah) and former Portland homicide detective Bruce
Robert Coffin’s second entry in the Detective Byron series “Beneath the
Depths” (any book that starts with the body being found in the waters off my
hometown of Peaks Island is worth reading).

 

So I’ll leave you with the list and a thought from my favorite podcast.

 

“The past is gone, and cannot harm you anymore.   And while the future is
fast coming for you, it always flinches first and settles in as the gentle
present.”

 

Cheers and I’ll see you next month.

 

Josh
