Mrs. Klingle’s Underwear Dress, a Confession


bd6e3da6ae2fd75df03b062bdacdc91eIn honor of the back-t0-school season, writer Avery Caswell reveals the worst bad behavior from her grammar school days.

I was born first and consequently saddled with the typical traits of the firstborn: rule-following, approval-hungry, and hugely self-critical. At age three, soon after my little sister’s arrival, I realized I had been cast as the smart sister and she the cute and funny one. My sister was a cute and funny baby, then a cute and funny toddler—especially when she held a strip of cotton under her nose like a mustache and went around ho-ho-ho-ing like Santa. After she broke her collarbone, she was cute and funny even in a bulky, figure-eight cast, wearing my old green sweater and posing as the Incredible Hulk.

Kids and adults may not always have the same view about when school should start, given one group’s desire to keep summer fun going and the other’s to let someone else handle the daily activity planning.

Take Advantage of Tax Free Shopping – Back to School for the Whole Family at Green Spring Station




Whether it’s back to school, or stocking your own closet with the season’s latest styles, Tax Free Shopping Week is the perfect chance to spruce up your wardrobe, while giving your wallet a little break.

Maryland Tax Free Week 2013 Begins Sunday


Tax Free Week

catch of the day fish (2)The only two certainties, we all know, are death and taxes…Or are they? Not from August 11-17, they’re not! With the economy and all, most states now have one or two tax free weeks each year, when consumers (that’s us) get to shop ‘til we drop without having to fork over a percentage to Uncle Sam. And Maryland’s choice of August 11-17 comes at a pretty good time. Like it or not, it’s time to get thinking about back-to-school, fall wardrobes, and the eventual change in the weather. But you can ease the pain by shopping this week and enjoying that built-in sale on clothing and shoes priced at $100 or less.
