In a happier time I used to chuckle at my older Brother Henry as he laborously x'ed out the large calendar on his fridge. Day-by-day he would keep track of the day and schedule with his big "X".
Henry is gone and I miss him. The rascal is probably pulling off a big hoo-kee-doo on Mom as they fish in the River of Life. I have apparently caught up with him in that I now "x" a calendar which you can see on the desk in the picture below. (Click on picture to enlarge).
I have most of the modern tools for maintaining a record of appointments and happenings. The latest being my new Blackberry Curve. It is probably as perfect a tool as one could want. None-the-less, old habits are hard to break and if it ain't broke don't fix it.
I just put my "x" on Wednesday, January 7, 2009. What makes this a rare day is because the little square on the Norton Mutual Fire Association calendar is empty. I don't recall the last day I've had an empty square. If only the BCS games, each day has been and is full. Except for today. I'll have to make today a special day. Uh, maybe take two naps? HaHaHa
