Here is in Colorado it's back to school!
When I think of back to school I am reminded of You've Got Mail.
Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly (Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan):
"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."
