...it's the Sunday of Summer!

So when the calendar page turns to August there are several things that almost always seem to happen…



·         Disbelief that summer could nearly be ‘over’.

·         A promise to get to the pool multiple times in the next two weeks!

·         Corn on the Cob festivals will start happening soon.

·         It will still be hot for a while yet.

·         Returning to school is getting close.  (Did you hear that moan from students and teachers alike?)

·         Many state fairs are still to come.

·         Road construction will stay in high gear.

·         Summer sports seasons end.

·         Final vacations will get underway.

·         Pre-season NFL football.

·         Fantasy draft parties are planned.

·         Anticipation of the fall season begins.


All these things likely will occur, but in this transition time, remember:  Keep mowing that lawn…Keep eating those brats…Keep the air conditioning humming…Keep heading to the beach…Keep watching baseball…after all…

It’s ‘only’ August.
