Summer sales a sign of the time

Today as I took a break from the bed and breakfast just long enough to go into nearby Holland Michigan, I was beginning to realize just what time of year it was already by the clothing sales racks.  All summer merchandise apparently is now on sale, which was good timing for me as I needed pick up some more shorts as a part of my attire at breakfast time at the Inn.  How on earth does time keep flying by us,  especially the older we get?
