Leaf throwdown!

Dear Dan,

It's a wild autumn day out there today. Autumn was always your favorite season. Maybe because your birthday was in the fall. This day is windy, some sun, some clouds, some rain, some branches -- a little bit of everything.

Plus -- the Leaf Throwdown! Sunday, while it was still sunny, two trees next to the parking lot were dropping leaves. First one tree dropped its leaves; then the other tree dropped its leaves. It looked like they were in competition with each other. All that was needed was a rake and the two of us jumping into the freshly made leaf pile. You and I would do that for hours when we were kids. I think that is one of my favorite childhood memories of us.

You would  loved the weather of these past several days.

I love and miss you, bro.
