    With my children now grown, the academic calendar no longer looms with lists of supplies and uniforms and the deadlines of signed parental permissions. It no longer sends stress signals about being tardy for class or late for practice. Instead, it is my friend, making promises of fun and exciting weekends ahead from September through January with NFL (Heres hoping that the players and owners finalize their deal and get onto the much anticipated season.), college, and Friday night area football games. The excitement is in the air as we anticipate fall and football season; and in this issue of Bluffs & Bayous we share with you amazing recipes that are a must to try and serve from your home, tent, or tailgate! Our story on David Wilsons unique sauce and Jennie Guidos review of Crave restaurant located in Cleveland, Mississippi, contribute to the pigskin mania of our August issue as does In the

    Enter August, the last official month of summer on the calendar. It seems as if I was just introducing July and our arts issue with its plethora of local and regional arts. Since our work here in the Bluffs & Bayous office is always a month or two ahead of the existing month with deadlines mid-month prior to the following months publication, I sometimes transpose the month Im working in with the month Im living ina bit of a thought glitch, given all the busy-ness that my life, as yours, entails. What brought me to the realization that summer is rapidly on the wane and the next season is fast approaching is the recent information posted on Facebook from my friends. Within the past few weeks, I have noticed more families on the go to beach vacations, long weekends in Las Vegas, family reunions, trips to the Caribbean Islands, more beach vacationsand more beach vacations. Just recently I have seen postings for back-to-school supplies, uniforms, and football and softball practices. All of these activities are harbingers of our gearing up for back-to-school mode. Point in factteachers report back to their classroom duties the first week of August with students showing up mere days later. One friends Facebook posting mentioned her childhood school days running from after Labor Day until the first part of May. I, too, well remember my own three-month-long summers between school years when we did not begin school until the day after Labor Day. I couldntwouldntdidnt want to think about football schedules, fall clothing, and school supplies until the week of Labor Day. That was the week my mother bought our school supplies to prepare us for the academic year.
