Thar she blows! Today, Thursday, Sept. 19, you can throw an “Arrr!” at everyone you meet with International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
The last day of summer is Saturday, Sept. 21. Or, you can look at it this way: The first day of fall is Sept. 22. Patch has found something for you to do each day as we count down until summer passes us by.
