1. The Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre cast takes its final bow of the season (as it did Saturday night).

2. Pickups carrying wood as high as the sideboards will allow are as plentiful as Hummers on Highway 95.

3. Your garden tomatoes finally start to ripen.

4. Smoke from burning grass fields gets in your eyes (especially if you’re living north of said fields).

5. The politicians come knocking on your door.
