I was probably the only kid who loved back to school shopping. The new clothes were fun, definitely, especially back in the day when clothes were considered suitable birthday and Christmas presents, before personal electronics. But geek that I am, I got excited about folders, paper, pencils, the real “back to school” supplies, and the idea of going back to school. By August, after the long weeks of summer and the diversion of the family vacation in Copper Harbor, I was ready to go back, to learn and study. Summer was fun, but it was just a break, after all.
