Rain… Door mats…The smell of wet earth and asphalt beneath our feet. Â The subtle scents of maple embers gently burning upon open fires everywhere. Â The deep green hues of hill sides on the horizon brought back to life by the life inducing breath of fresh precipitation. Â I can really start to see, hear, and smell it all around me this time of year. Â You say you don’t? Â Then you must be in southern California; where Summer is perpetual and the middle finger is the universal commuter greeting.Â Tragic for someone as in love with cold, gloomy weather as I am… Luckily, the last couple of days have been quite autumn-esque with the aforementioned delights. Â By far, Autumn weather is THE sexiest weather of all.Â Sure. Â Some of you beach bodies out there relish in the supposed delights of SoCal summer with its warm breezes, hot sun, hot women, and the perpetual, mostly-infernally hot air.Â Â
Not me, though. Give me some rain, some scotch, and a fireplace for me and my sweetheart to re-enact our late night Best-of-80′s-R&B infomercials. You know the ones. Â Fire place, aqua-net hair, cheap wine for the lady, tacky sweaters, and that awesome, and I mean AWESOME, Scenic Wildlife Rugs designed by Eddie LeRoy and the Hautman Brothers!
What better way to channel my inner romantic than to proudly display A PACK OF WOLVES (yes that’s right, freakin WOLVES! when inviting the misses for a fire side ‘chat’. Â Did I mention WOLVES! ON MY FLOOR! YES!!!! Â Or perhaps you’re more of a buck? Â Fret not, dear friend. Woo her untamable spirit with the Eddie LeRoy Elk design. Â Perhaps youâ€™re neither of those, however. Â Maybe what you need is the immovable fixation of the FOCUSED COUGAR (yes, that’s a real mat!!) Shine like the solitary beast you are! Â If none of those tickle yours or her fancy, we’ve got bears, more wolves on the move, spring turkeys. Â Did I mention we’ve got a MAJESTIC TIGER! YOU CAN’T BE A MAHOGONY FURNITURE-OWNING MAN WIHTOUT ONE!Â Turn up the Luther Vandross or Michael McDonald and get on that mother.Â The home rug, I mean.
