... just trying to keep my customers satisfied ...

I'm trying desperately to compose some sort of entry to properly memorialize Independence Day and, if I manage to scrape something off the floor of my brain, you might see it, but in the meantime, I couldn't let these two items pass:

1. TV Guide, July 3-9, 2005 contains an ad put out by the Danbury Mint. The ad is offering for sale "The First Annual Yorkie Christmas Ornament." There have been other ads from the same outfit offering other Christmas ornaments for sale even earlier in the year.

2. The Rite Aid circular in our Sunday paper for the week of July 3-9, 2005 has a banner that reads "Great Back-To-School Savings!"

Has someone altered the calendar without notifying me? Are children returning to school already? Will we celebrate Christmas in August? Have we passed through the Looking-Glass? Help!

While visiting PA we went to a Hallmark store and found that this store still had christmas ornaments from last December in stock and on sale!  Of course, my Mom had to buy some.  Then found out that this month or next, Hallmark will be getting their 2005 ornaments in.  So yeah christmas comes wayyyyyyy early.
