I used to spend hours looking for just the right calendar to put up every new year. For the past three years daughter Jen has made me a calendar. She uses Memory Mixer Software to create it..the same software I use to create my blog headers. She is a little more artsy fartsy than me..a little more daring..she puts photos in at an angle..sometimes I do too, and then after a few moments I straighten them up again.
The calendar has some of my favorite people in the whole world in it and a few dogs too!
Jen organizes it for me and puts in everyone's birthday, along with their ages. Only one family birthday this month..Ron in Indiana. Only two days where I have to be someplace..later today I was supposed to get my trussed up like a turkey thumb released..they called and postponed me till tomorrow..someone who is supposed to be a health care professional has the flu..did they not get the memo about the flu shot?
I still have not made any resolutions, goals or lists..I must be in denial. Maybe I will just try to relax..and go with the flow.
Yesterday we were finally able to connect with Far Guys cousin Tim..we had a great visit. The roads were fair to partly crappy after the snowstorms, but we made our way to the Hobby Shop for train parts and to the Antique Shop for more old photos. Not that I needed anymore..but you have to strike while the iron is hot. I got some great 1890’s Wedding Photographs. I found several old photos with names on them..so I will try to find homes for them.
Last week we had an interesting story unfold over at Forgotten Old Photos: Photo Number 409 A little girl who was seven years old wrote a postcard to her parents back in 1963 or so..I found it in an Antique Shop..yesterday I mailed it back to her! How would you like to get some small piece of your childhood back? I was thrilled for her! For just a moment when she opens her mail in a few days she will be seven again and homesick..what a way to have your calendar turned backward:)
