Starbucks, Caribou, et al may have begun promoting their annual fall/pumpkin flavors (which I love), but the rule in the Bouma house hold is that the high temperature must be below 73° for three consecutive days before enjoying said flavors (same rule applies to fall-scented candles, too).

I have the same rule with making my gumbo, but the "magic temp" is 60 degrees for three consecutive days.

Thanks to help from some awesome senior high students, we got the new 65" TV mounted in the Gathering House and were able to put it to use for the first time last night at SHYG!

(And a boatload of thanks again to the gracious donors who contributed toward the TV and accessories!)
