August . . .
Always a special month to me as birthdays abound; wedding anniversaries seem abundant, and . . . football season gets all that much closer.
I learned from the comic section of today’s paper that in August there are no national holidays . . . so we have to make our own holidays. It is fortunate that we do have the religious holiday of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We can add that to our personal holidays.
I start the month with my own birthday and 55 never looked so good. Of course I have to look back at that age with historical perspective, however.
