Back to School

School starts back this week. I went to Wal-Mart yesterday to grab some charcoal and starter fluid. I thought it would be a quick stop but the place was buzzing. There were kids of all ages with their parents buying school supplies.
These days there's all kinds of stuff to consider. Clothes, backpacks, pens, theme binders, mp3 players, cell phones, and calculators.
It used to be a lot simpler buying school supplies - a pair of dungarees, a couple of flannel shirts, a Hopalong Cassidy lunch kit, some paste, a writing pad, a couple of fat pencils and you were set. The only calculators we had was the ten fingers on our hands. I still use my calculator. It's easy on batteries.
