Catalogue Countdown

The Eaton's catalogue was a mail-order catalogue published from 1884 to 1976.  Each summer, sometime in August the catalogues would arrive from Simpson's-Sears and Eaton's and my friend Janet and I would go through every page, deciding which items we liked best.  So our August was a very busy month of decision-making.  By the 50's and 60's they weren't selling houses and barns in the catalogue - that was earlier decades.  

The site says that there is no shortage of fun things to do in August - fro the PGA Championship and US Open to the world's biggest food fight, and the world's longest yard sale.  I forgot that this is the month for the Burning Man Festival in Black Rock Desert, NV.  As the site says:  "Aug 28 - Sept 5 The Man burns in 38 days!"

What will you do in August in the Golden Horseshoe area?
