Midday Music Monday 9/22/08

Autumn. The first official day of fall doesn't always feel so autumnal in Georgia, but with the cool mornings we've been having this time round it's just plausible (today's projected high temperatures in the 80s notwithstanding). So on Midday Music we're harvesting, hunting, comtemplating and generally enjoying the break from the heat.
