August 3rd is National Watermelon Day …and I will enjoy several slices!
August 7 is International Beer Day …but I will have to miss that, my doctor says.
August 16th is the Battle of Bennington Day. This battle of the American Revolutionary war, part of the Saratoga campaign, occurred back in 1777. Most people thought it took place in Bennington, Vermont (itself, a lovely town) but actually occurred in Walloomsac, New York. My family and I had the privilege to attend the 225th anniversary. Soldiers and tents and women taking care of the injured men as well as cannons filling the air with thunder was thrilling. War is never to be celebrated, but my boys needed to see this.
August is also know for being celebrated all 31 days as:
Black Business Month… please support each and every one.
National Back to School Month. During this COVID-19 pandemic, I feel for the parents struggling with whatever their government decides about how their children will be schooled.
On a lighter note, how will you celebrate National Sandwich Month? How about a bacon, lettuce, and tomato on whole wheat toast sandwich? Yum!
Best of all, the entire month is
Romance Awareness Month
and with this on my mind, please check out all the books published by ‘lil ole me!
