CALENDAR CRAZE (calendar days)

Here’s a re-post of one of my ‘Loco Letters’. I still go through this every year…maybe you do, too? 🙂

LOCO LETTERS

It’s that time of year, again. The coming end of a year, when all the calendar companies come out with their new designs. I see them displayed in all the stores, from bookstores, discount stores, grocery stores, and even kiosks in the mall. Hundreds of calendars emblazoned with the numbers of the new year ahead. Here’s my loco letter to them…

CALENDAR CRAZE (calendar daze) DSC00357 (2)

Dear Calendar Companies,

I love your calendars. Every one of them are bright, colorful, and oh, so helpful. I mean, how else would I know what the months and days are, if not for you.

The thing is, I have a problem. You may not think it is a big problem, and for you it isn’t. You can only benefit from my dilemma. You see, I like so many of your calendars, I have a really hard time choosing one to buy. I want them all.

I only need one, yet I wind up buying quite a few. It’s because the pictures of kitty cats, puppies, horses, and scenery are so pretty. Then, as I’m trying to choose, I see the trivia ones, then the joke-a-day ones, then the cartoon ones, then the ones based on all the television shows.

All of these come in different styles, too. The regular, hang on the wall types, in all sizes, the ones you put on a desk, and the small planner ones you can carry around. There is a calendar depicting every subject, and taste the buyer might want.

How are we supposed to choose? I stand there at the display, weighing one against another. Which one has the ‘prettiest flowers’, the ‘cutest cats’, the ‘funniest’ cartoons? It is impossible, I tell you.

Remember, I only need one, but in the end, I buy several. Then, at home, I try to find places to put them all…the kitchen, the bedroom, the office, the garage, the bathroom? (because, who doesn’t need to know when the next full moon occurs, while you’re -ahem- busy in there?)

All this calendar buying, I’ll admit, is good for your company, and I do enjoy looking/reading them. I suppose one way we can have an enjoyable experience in buying lots of them, is to give them as gifts to friends and family.

Then, what do you know…we can sit back and wait to receive more calendars…the ones they bought as a gift for us!

Sincerely,

In a Daze

Here’s a calendar I got as a gift for Christmas. It is a calendar of cats that you fill in with sticker pieces like a paint by number, but with the little stickers, “Paint by Sticker Cats”. This will keep me busy all year. 🙂

I would have to say I’m a big fan of all kinds of skulls and skeletons. I like all things Halloween, and especially these kind of items for the Day of the Dead – Dia de los Muertos.

I have painted rocks with skeletons on them, I have jigsaw puzzles, and stickers. I also have rings and necklaces with skulls. 🙂

A nice display at the store of tall and lush climbing ivy plants.

And then … I saw the sign … “Ad Special/ 10” Pothos Ivy/Totem Ploe/32.99 🙂

Haha! What’s a PLOE? Probably meant to spell Pole!

And this is just some alien stickers on our back storm door that my grand-son put there a couple of years ago. Still looks funny. 🙂

Gray wooden fence with two black birds on top/ three alien stickers on the clear glass makes it look like they are on the fence.

WEEKLY WEATHER – RAIN

Weekly Weather: Rain

Today’s topic is Rain. Guess it was a good time for it, as it has started to rain here today. The first 3 photos I took looking out my back door, the kitchen window, with my plant, and another of the back storm door. You can see rain droplets on there, along with some fun stickers my grand-son put on the glass. 🙂 The last one was from a while back, when we had very heavy rain. Our yard and street flooded. It looks like a brown river flowing down the street in front of the house.  All these were taken on my iphone.
