August is never regarded for much. There are no holidays, special events or notable occasions. The eighth month of the year is simply the hot and hazy final stretch of summer vacation, promoted only for back-to-school sales – when trying on sweaters and jackets is truly unbearable.


I have an August birthday, and always received lots of wonderful new fall clothes as gifts. I tried them on in front of a box fan, set on high; then put them away in my closet for a much cooler day. The present I remember  and anticipated most of all each year was from the field: sweet corn! Corn that was “knee-high by the Fourth of July” meant corn would be ready for my birthday dinner on August 5. If the Silver Queen was ripe for picking, it was even better for a Leo like me.
