Welcome to Autumn
Joe said he was in an Eddie Bauer store recently when he overheard a worker say they are in the "Fall I" mode.
It really isn't surprising. Retailers, especially clothing retailers, often work a season ahead.
The big box office supply stores start back to school sales right after Independence Day. It's a big time for them, almost like Christmas.
My LL Bean catalog that arrived last week was marked "late summer."
I really don't mind. I work all night and sleep all day. Sleep comes easier when it's dark and cold. I have a good air conditioner and great black out curtains. They help, but there's nothing like crawling under a blanket on a cold winter afternoon.
It's funny. I don't hear any complaints when swimsuits and polo shirts arrive in stores just after the new year. Flannel and corduroy in July is an entirely different story.
