I just want to tell you folks what a great thing Uncle Joe's appointment calendar is. I am sure some folks use it for appointments, but I use it almost like a diary. I jot a few lines down in it every evening. I write down when the "red sow" got bred or when the black cow had her calf. I write down what I did, who stopped over or what the weather was. I keep track of hay baled, maple syrup made or when the bull got moved. I love the old farm pictures too.
I just started writing in the 2017 calendar. On the shelf on my office are the last 5 years of these journals. They are great to read. The best part is going back to find information that I had written throughout the year. I just don't remember as good as I used to I guess.
Anyway, I encourage you to buy an appointment calendar and use it as I describe...the old photos alone are worth every penny of the cost.
