As with July so goes August: another sizzling month chock full of special days to make you aware of special causes and make you buy special things.
Though August is Get Ready for Kindergarten Month (for which I’m about 40 years late), it’s those special individual ‘Days’ that are most exciting. Here’s a list of the most important of August’s daily celebrations and some songs to sing while serving cake and ice cream.

Check with your wife before you decide to get one.

Just beware of who offers it.
