They're Back

I first saw them today in Barnes & Noble. They were on a small table looking subdued, but they were there nonetheless.

Then I saw them in Target. They weren't quite so subtle in Target. They took up three aisles in their own special section.

I looked at them with a mixture of horror and delight.

Harbingers of a coming reality.

School supplies.

Of course you don't want to buy them though, because it isn't fall yet, nor do you live in NY. :)

I would send you a bouquet of sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. But this not knowing has its charms . . .

I love the Staples commercial that used to be on that played the Christmas song, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." It will be 8 openings of school that I have missed since retiring...missed, but not missed.
